Wainman Hawaii is an international company made up of friends and professionals. Because of the importance kiteboarding has for You, our goal is to design and manufacture products that push the boundaries of what man and machine can produce. Because of the nature of how we work, sometimes we come up with some crazy things as well. But that is always done only with good intentions and for fun, as a smile is the healthiest thing in this world. We never intend to make anyone mad or upset, and if we have somehow done that in any way, we are really very sorry. We are here so you can relax, live your life, and when the time comes to ride, just get on the water and be 100% stoked with the gear that you chosen. This is what we aim for, and this is who we are.
