Wade Carmichael is an 18 year-old rising-star from Avoca and the newest addition to the Joistik team. Combining powerful rail surfing with new school flair, Wade boasts the whole package. Currently 4th on the Junior Series- heading into the last 2 events he is looking good for World Junior qualification. Wade’s favourite contest board is the P1 which he rides at 6’0 x 18 3/4 x 2 1/4. His quiver also includes the X4, AC1 and a new model we have been working on, soon to be released. “My favourite board would have to be the Protag because of how well it flows and the amount of speed it has. It just wont stop moving in all conditions. It is a really good board”. Wade rode his way to his biggest career victory by taking out the Billabong Pro Junior in excellent 4-5 foot surf at Keramas last year. Wade displayed nerves of steel in his come-from-behind win after fellow teamrider James Woods opened the final with an outstanding 9 point ride.
