Wainman is one of the most appreciated brands in kiteboarding industry. Their team makes no compromise when it is time to craft high performance kiteboarding equipment and is dedicated to improve the riding experience of all kiteboarders out there. The new 2012 Joke is the perfect board to complement the Rabbit 2.0 Gang kites. The board is especially designed for the dedicated wakestyle and freeride enthusiast who is looking to experience new thrills in flaw waters or in choppy waves. The board has a straighter outline and special W shaped tips.

This profile assures a smooth and fast glide and optimal stability. Explosive pop propels the rider into the air without effort, while smooth landings assure extra comfort. Balanced power delivery makes the Joke suitable for all wave and wind conditions. Although the board is a perfect tool for pro riders who participate in competitions, it can be used by less experienced riders due to its user friendly features.

Wainman has crafted the Joke using an innovative 3D bottom shape, based on a convex bubble in the center and double towards the tips. This new bottom shape makes the board very agile and provides optimal power delivery. At the same time it improves stability and suppresses the shocks resulted from wave impacts. The board makes use of two virtual rockers: a three stage rocker provides extra pop needed for power moves and improved upwind performance, while a second rocker in the center assures a smooth and predictable glide. The Joke is very responsive and it keeps the rider in control at all times.

A flat deck improves the comfort of the ride and allows the rider to mount different binding systems. The rider can use the Joke with classic straps or wakeboard bindings, depending on the rider’s choice. A moderate flex pattern assures optimal wakestyle and freeride performance. The board is crafted using a full Wood core, combined with epoxy laminate layups. The entire structure is protected against abrasion and UV light damage by a special coating. The Wainman Joke is available in four sizes and comes complete with pads, straps, bag, fins, multi tool and screws.
