You guys! It has been a while and no answer :cry:
Anyways I was able to find this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuG2Wi8VWq4

The flexible surf is VERY interesting.

braveman I haven't decided yet if I like your avatar or does it make my eyes hurt, but for sure it's an interesting choice :o

That flex on the first wave board does seem like a new one. I know the North Wam had some flex into the front of the board but don't think it was that much.
Wonder how it performs.

WOW WOW WOW :!:
Guys, The new wave is by far the most fun board I have ever tried.
I took it for a spin not before the rep asked me to try and make it short because there was a bit of a line for demoing it. When he signaled me to come back I tried to convince him that I want to buy this specific board and that i'll keep riding for a while :lol:
Ended up ordering one on the spot and in 2 weeks I'll have the beauty in my hands (and a big headache from the wife).

It is truly, an amazing and fun, so much fun, board :!:

Here, the demo gear sits on the beach (on the rare occasions they happen) because the reps are too indifferent to letting the gear out :roll:

Sales... easier to get when you've had the product in hot sweaty hands. Something to think about...

Because Japan. It varies - some you ask and it's no problem; others, you have to beg :roll:

Apparently, the numbers of kiters in Japan has been declining, and can barely be measured triple figures :( might have something to do with the prices...? :roll:

Ok Ben,
So first of all what I found so impressing is how fun the board is and this is the most important thing for me.
Other things I liked so much-
* The flex and astrodeck make it very user friendly.
* It feels lightweight.
* The round rails work perfectly, the grip is there for freestyle and also there is enough volume to get going early enough.
* The connection I had to this board was immediate. No adjustment time at all.
* It seems unbreakable due to the flex
* It's different and even unique :!:
