Tio, sorry only just seen the post, I have the 130 Blunt 2 and Joke 138 at the moment, I'm trying to get hold of a 134 Joke to make a more direct comparrison but compared to the the Joke is so much smoother, quiet ! and carves like a wave board, well almost !!! The whole board just seems more user friendly but maintains performance and has extellent pop after loading up for railies etc also for standard jumping its impressive not only on take off but landings are smooth and forgiving.

I'll write more soon, need the 134.

hey guys, i see that's surely a great board!
but how's the low end of its?
very often i'm forced to ride lil bit underpowered, so i'm thinking about size?
my weight is about 70kg (o maybe 75 TOPS), riding straps - for now, but may be bindings in close future, 134 or 138?
at the moment i ride my 2010 nobile nhp 134
thanks :bye:

I would say get the 138 if you plan on riding boots at all for your weight. The Joke actually gets going pretty good in lighter wind considering the amount of rocker it has (a little more than 2" on the 138), this is all thanks to the convex bottom shape. Let us know how it works for ya.

How would you compare it with Cabrinha Custom? I ride 133 w/ straps, easiest to land board, and quite good in chop. Thanks, M>
