The new Manakel is the ultimate freestyle machine. I’ve just spent the last 4 days test riding this awesome board up in Cooktown and here’s what I have to say.
“4 days ago I opened the post to receive my new Vanhunks Manakel 137. At first glance I was taken back by the design of the Manakel – Nice rocker line, great flex pattern, state of the art shape and sweet graphics. I was dying to try the Manakel so headed north to test it in some cranking trade winds“.
“After taking the Manakel through the hoops I have to say, I’m really impressed. It’s a total freestyle weapon. The pop is unreal! Designed for flat water riding and short chop this board excels beyond compare. The sweet rocker line is just right for powered landings.
I rode the Manakel 137 in a range of wind conditions and it was incredible to ride from
light winds all the way through to nuking conditions”.
