Just want to give my impression on the board as I have just bought a Joke 134...
I am an intermediate kiter with no association with any kite company whatsoever.
The board has a great finish (that you cannot appreciate from pictures) , great graphics (personal of course, but at least the colors will get you some attention on the beach...).
Finally the staps (different colors!) and pads have improved from the Blunt (which I owned) and this year are great, specially the pads, so cushioning. Speaking of cushioning, this board is all about "cushioning" :) it has rocker, good amount of flex, great bottom shape and as soon as you put it on your feet, it feels "confortable" and smooth. Having said that, I was also positively impressed by the manueverability (it turns so easily and I like the small fins) and it pops well (my other board is a 2010 Lunacy 129 so I think I can compare pop..), it goes upwind despite my doubts and one of the best things: it lands softly and very stable :jump: . I ride flat and very choppy waters (South East Asia) where you get no spray from this board.
To finish this, my girlfriend took it for a short ride and came back after a hour..and what do I do now?
There are a lot of good boards on the market nowadays but not all of them spell fun allround, and I think that's what this board is all about...
By the way I am going to screw my LF binding and take it to the cable ski nex time! :bye:

For those who like to compare...

Don't know about Cab, but:
The Joke has similitudes with both the RSC Supreme III & the RDD Poison LTD 2010.
Closer to the Supreme when your surfin down the waves (almost feels like an O.R. Mako) smooth and easy...Nose never sink. Turns like it would have no fins under it.
Pop is like the Poison. You can reach the heigh you like pretty easily.
Landing is better then anything else, from my point of vue.

I'm buying a Joke this week: best value for lower cost then any of those boards mentionned above.
But honnestly, money is my last argue because ALL those boards are seriously impressive.
