Wainman Hawaii Cruzer

Now in its second year, the Wainman Hawaii Cruzer is only going to build on its initial success. And with the likes of Forest Bakker, Wainman Hawaii Pro Rider, claiming it as his “board of choice” it’s bound to gather even more admirers. The 2016 model brings a funky new graphic featuring skateboard trucks under the board, something you don’t…

Wainman Hawaii Joke

The Joke is Wainman’s first twintip, their pride and joy, which they’ve been developing since the beginning. The Joke's claim to fame is an industry first ‘3D’ bottom shape that is made by the convex bubble placed on the centre of the board. New for 2016 the Joke is lighter and slightly stiffer in construction, it also boasts deeper bottom…

Wainman Hawaii Punch

We tested the Generation 3.0 Gypsy 6.5m last year and have been looking forward to getting our hands on the Punch. Generation 3.0 of the Wainman Hawaii series of kites was long awaited. Unlike other brands Wainman, doesn’t release kites on a yearly product cycle and the Generation 2.0 series was actually launched over two years ago. So, what’s different…

Generation 3.0 of the Wainman Hawaii series of kites has been long awaited. The team doesn’t release kites on a yearly product cycle unlike some other brands and the Generation 2.0 series was actually launched over two years ago.

Wainman Hawaii Gypsy

The Gypsy has been in the Wainman Hawaii line-up for a while now, and it is worth mentioning that every size in the line-up is different. Not just in a scaled up or scaled down way, the team look at each size, what is expected of it and then design the kite around that formula. They always stick to the…

Wainman Hawaii Passport

Legendary Maui shaper Sean Ordonez has shaped the surfboard line up for 2013 from Wainman Hawaii. The Passport is based around a classic surfboard shape, but with a modern twist and is aimed at handling just about anything you can throw at it. That said it definitely has a nod towards bigger more powerful waves and side shore conditions. The…

Wainman Hawaii Punch

The guys at Wainman Hawaii have been busy of late; the line up now includes a 7.5m Mr Green and a 10.5m Punch, shortening the gap between the 6, 9 and 12m kites already in the range. If you read the magazine you’ll know we are a really fan of the 9m Smoke kite, which flies beautifully and feels natural…

The Smoke is the go to kite in the Wainman line up, boasting a huge range and offering performance in the waves, freestyle and freeride. The build quality on the Wainman kites has never been in question, and 2012 is no different. The construction is solid with reinforcement in all the right places. The kite also comes with plenty of…

Wainman Hawaii Joke

Striking would be one word to describe the Joke, pimp would be another. Calling on some seriously artistic graphics the board certainly delivers in the looks department, but it doesn’t stop there. It comes with 4 small wakestyle fins, straps and pads and, wait for it, a multi-function screwdriver and a padded board bag! OK so it isn’t the cheapest…

The wind has been a cruel mistress this issue, so our test is rather light, but we’d rather test things properly with some decent wind than just regurgitate the manufacturers blurb! We did manage to test gear from Core, Crazy Fly, Moses, Ozone and Wainman Hawaii though!
