The most popular windsurf board in the world.

“How can we increase the number of people windsurfing? My background and many from my generation started the sport on longboards. This world of longboards was another world compared to the windsurfing of today. That longboard world looked a lot more like the SUP world of today with both a competition side of the sport and big recreationa family part. Longboard windsurfing back then was so much a larger sport.

The question is: how to provide this kind of option again for those who
are interested?

At the same time, I saw families enjoying SUP Longboards when these
boards could really be windsurf boards if we developed and provided
the right shape.

The original Windsurfer and the older Superlight Longboards are too
narrow for SUP use and too thin for people racing One Design. Boards
designed for SUP with a mast track insert in the deck are not really useful
for windsurfing, just as an option.

This was the background and the ideas in my head when I started shaping prototype boards. Boards #1 and #2 were too thick and too
wide, so not performing at all. Board #3 started to see some potential.
Board #4 really confirmed that the concept was valid, that we will find a solution. Board #5 was a breakthrough and worked very well for windsurfing and SUP. Board #6 became too specialized for higher performance Windsurfing but less useful for SUP. The decision was made to go to mass production with the shape # 5.

Since then the focus has been on getting the parts and systems for the 3x
different versions of the board and keep it as simple as possible. There’s the Windsurfer Class / One Design Racing version with a larger daggerboard, the Beginner Version with a closed deck and a smaller daggerboard and the SUP version with fully closed deck and a carry handle.”
