In the world of kiteboarding the name of Jimmy Lewis is associated with high performance and quality. That is because since the first kiteboard models released almost half a century ago, their team has relied on top technology and high quality fabrics, and has made sure that the boards will meet the needs of all the riders out there. For 2011 the acclaimed manufacturer has come up with a very impressive board lineup. Besides the standard stock models, Jimmy Lewis has released several custom models which are intended for the true kiteboarding enthusiasts and for the pro riders.

The Myth Custom is the ultimate kiteboarding machine and it is intended to deliver performance close to perfection. It packs speed, power and control and it has all it takes to offer a sensational session. Since the board is a custom one it is available in any size the rider wishes and any color and graphic style.

The 2011 Jimmy Lewis Myth Custom went through an extensive process of research and development, because the Jimmy Lewis team wanted to create the ultimate kiteboarding machine. The board is designed by Jimmy Lewis shapers together with pro rider and champ Lou Wainman, who would not settle for anything less than top performance and efficiency out on the waves.

The board is quite powerful and it is intended to run at high speeds, regardless of the water and wind conditions. The board has excellent wakestyle performance, but it is also great at freestyle and wave riding. The Myth is based on an actual story, about the famous Lou Wainman, who has become admired by all riders, after achieving the ultimate performace while riding a homemade wakeboard, especially crafted by him to deliver optimal efficiency. Well, Jimmy Lewis wanted to take the story forward with the Myth, and with the help of Lou, they developed one of the most exquisite boards available today. The standard Myth is 36" long and 13" wide, but it can be customized to suit the needs of any rider, depending on his skills and style.

The board features a wider shape and slightly wider tips, along with a refined outline, so it glides fast and smooth across the waves. The Dominatrix features make the board faster and more dynamic. It does not use a fin setup so it is very agile and has almost no drag. Jimmy Lewis has improved the upwind and early planning abilities to make sure that the Myth has all it takes to satisfy the needs of pro or extreme riders. At the same time it can be powered up in the lightest wind conditions and offers a fast, constant top speed. It is enhanced to offer nice jumps and lifts, as well as top control and reliability. No matter what moves the rider performs, the board is predictable and has a direct and precise control.

The Jimmy Lewis Myth Custom offers plenty of comfort during the whole ride due to the included soft deck pads and easy adjustable footstraps. The board uses only footstraps and no foot bindings to allow the rider experience the ultimate feeling out on the water. Ride the Custom Myth and you will truly feel power and freedom in the waves.

JL will actually make a board according to your instructions. You can choose any size you want. The sape and design remains the same, but it is great to have a board which really suits you. It is stable and doesn't need much input to steer it....more
