If you want a top performance freestyle board, then you need to get the JN-manufactured Chit Chat. If you want to get a properly good freeride board, you need to get the JN-manufactured Circus. But if you want to keep riding when everyone else head back to the beach because the wind isn’t strong enough, then you need to get the JN-manufactured Bouddok. The Bouddok board has been specifically designed for light wind conditions – or for the heavier rider.

The Bouddok board has a flat scoop rocker and a concave outline in the middle – this gives the board great upwind ability and early planning abilities. If kitting with a normal board would be a laborious task in light wind conditions, it is a breeze with the Bouddok board.

Most other light wind board do not offer much in terms of freestyle or wakestyle performance. The Bouddok does offer some freestyle and wakestyle performance. It has a parabolic outline that allows you to more easily hold the edge in overpowered conditions, and it offers good pop for less effort that you would require from similarly large boards.

From a visual point of view this board is amazing. It has an underwater theme; look down at the footpads and there’s a see-through bit that allows you to see the wood core. 

If you are a beginner rider, the Bouddok is perfectly suited for you. It will allow you to ride with confidence while you are picking up the basics. Unlike other beginner boards, you will not fell like you’ve outgrown the Bouddok. After you progress and get a smaller board, you can still take the Bouddok board for a spin when you have to deal with light wind conditions.

Please note that the Bouddok sits pretty low in the water and likes to point in straight lines. This is not good for choppy conditions. The Bouddok board does very well in light wind conditions; in the chop, not so much. Riding it in the chop is pretty hard work.
