Team rider Lewis Crathern gives us his thoughts on the Profanity wakestyle board and why it’s his number one choice with boots.
So I have been riding the Profanity and the Pro-Creator for a few months now, I thought I would share my thoughts starting first with the Profanity. Here’s my favourite things….
The board is strong. I take it all up the beaches here on the south coast which are stoney beaches…it’s not something I recommend doing to your board but when riding on the edge sometimes I have to do it! See pic attached of the base of my board after quite a few sessions now.
The rocker line gives the Profanity great performance in high wind which is my favourite style of riding.
The Profanity is a great single one board quiver if you want a board to cover, Strong wind, Freestyle and Wakestyle Kitesurfing. It is also great as a crossover board for Wakeboarding. Rather then getting used to 2 different boards in life you get to know just one board.

The channels on the bottom allow for finless riding with grip if your hitting obstacles.
I have always been a fan of a slightly thicker edge, it gives a smoother rail release which I feel gives you good control of the board. A smooth releasing board is essential if you like to manoeuvre your board quickly on the water – going heelside to toeside for example. It also aids unhooked moves where you need to edge smoothly to pop.
The board is great in flat water, but also in wavy conditions with kickers as there is reasonable rocker the nose always rides well over waves when your going out to sea.
I’ll see you when the wind is blowing and keep your eyes peeled for the RedBull King Of The Air.
