Dimitri s Slyle!!!

Dimitri Maramenides in one of his signature Tricks!!!
The next photo is Dimitri doing the same move last year when he came to visit us at Isla Blanca Lagoon, north of Cancun, Mexico.

Trick Terminology: This is where you ride along toeside, and send the kite launching into a front roll grabbing the nose of the board with your back hand, landing on your heelside and riding off in the opposite direction. This video features Dimitri Maramenides filmed in China at the Kiteboard Tour Asia (KTA) event.

Spot: Isla Blanca Kite Camp/Ikarus.

Wainman Hawaii New Board Collection!!!

Continuing the huge success of the 1st Blunt edition, we are pleased to present improved Blunt II with a changed construction, new graphics and accessories. The new Blunt, produced in our new factory in Austria, is slightly heavier but now "totally" bomb proof. Still, this is the same great, skinny board, as dragless, as smooth, as edgy, and as sick for strapped freeride as the original Blunt was. No matter if it's flat, wave or choppy water – the Blunt will do the job! Blunts will be supplied with 5cm fins, new thermo foam pads and straps, grab handle, tool bag and of course board bag. New Blunts are available in 4 sizes: 125 x 39 cm; 130 x 40,5 cm; 135 x 41,5 cm; 137 x 43,5 cm.

Though this wakestyle oriented revolutionary board is causing many pro-riders wanting to switch their sponsors, it is also great all-round board for intermediate riders. The most revolutionary board in Wainman Hawaii range and probably the most innovative on the market, on the first look gives you the thought of a wakestyle/newschool board and though our inspiration in designing this board, was to make Niccolo’s great riding even better, but in the end we have also perfect tool for advanced/intermediate amateurs who want to make a progress. Fast riding, insane pop, finless riding and the smoothest landing in the industry. These features together with pretty big rocker gives direct feel and top performance. Jokes will be supplied with shorter 4 cm fins, new thermo foam pads and straps, board bag, tool bag and is ready to be ridden with wake bindings. Jokes are available in 3 sizes: 134 x 40,5 cm; 138 x 41,5 cm; 142 x 42,5 cm.

Wainman Hawaii is proud to present new series of surfboards shaped by famous waterman from Hawaii - Sean Ordonez. The greatest shapes and high technology used for production of those waves toys, are so good that Niccolo, Bertrand use with no effects to their riding production ones instead of their previous custom boards. But in fact not only pros will feel the difference but specially average rider will appreciate them. This time we are coming up with 3 models (8 sizes all together): Magnum - continuation of our classic last year surfboard model, Gambler – new style shape, which refers to last year WIDE series and Passport - new shape, designed for strapless and paddle surfing.

We have no doubts the our actual selection of boards will cover demand of almost 100% riders. Everyone can find the most suited board for his need and have as much fun as possible. We are sure that same way Rabbit kites are changing kite standards in the air, our boards will do the rest and change people’s expectation to those piece of equipment that usually stays in the water.
