Humanoid Demo Dayz in oz with Chriso

Those who know Chriso know that he is an honest man, maybe a little too honest sometimes! Yep, he will tell you what he thinks regardless of the occasion. And for that reason, when he puts his name to something, you can guarantee that he believes in it. Exhibit A. Humanoid Wakeboards. As proof of his faith in the product, this summer in Oz Chriso will be traveling around in his Humanoid Vehicle spreading the word that Humanoid is now available in oz through humanoidwake.com.au.

What is the plan?
We started on the weekend at Penrith on the 12th and 13th. Then we are at Bli Bli on the 19th and 20th, then up to Mackay after Xmas, not sure of the dates just yet. Hopefully we can get a good turn up and everyone can have fun, try the Humanoid boards for the first time and yeah, just wakeboard over the weekend.

You are going to be demo-ing all the boards?
We’ll have boat boards there but obviously the cable board are the ones you’ll want to demo. Most of the boards are good for both Cable and Boat so it’s all good.

You’re working closely with Humanoid for this?
Yeah, working with Humanoid this year. This is the first year out of the 5 that my pro model board will be sold in Australia. Along with Mitch’s first ever pro model board as well as everything else. I’m pumped to be pushing the product. All the humanoid gear is handcrafted in the U.S. so we’ve taken the time to get it right you know, using the best materials money can buy, including paulownia wood, which is highly regarded construction in the snow industry.

Humanoid has been hard to get in oz so far, where can you get it this year?
The US have a direct web sales models so it makes sense that would translate into the Aus Market. This allows us to make sure the prices are competitive. So yeah, the only place you can buy it in Australia is humaoidwake.com.au and in selected Wayne Ritchies Skiers Edge stores including the Frankston Store.

The boards look so good this year, Who does artwork for your pro model board?
Oscar Woodrift, he’s been doing my artwork from the second year onwards. His stuff is sick. My boat board graphic has a rainbow serpent inspired graphic. In dreamtime mythology the rainbow serpent made all the waterways in Australia so if you look at the boat board in detail you can see some inspiration.

Nice.

Catch up with Chris or check out the gear for yourself at humanoidwake.com.au
