fanatic north sails dvd rail to rail

Fanatic released an action packed promotional DVD. Featuring some of the best windsurfers in the world, namely: Victor Fernandez, Gollito Estredo, Klaas Voget, Nayra Alonso, Peter Volwater, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, Laure Treboux, Yoli de Brendt, Nik Baker, Craig Gertenbach, Sebastian Wenzel.

The video also features lots of wave sailing action. So if you into that it’s certainly worth your time. If you are a racer….well, then you may be disappointed. Not a lot of footage on that discipline.

What is the best part? In my opinion the best part is the section shot at Peahi/Jaws, starting at 21:28. I would be so intimidating to look up the face of such a big wave.

Don’t forget to crank up the quality on youtube. It’s available in HD 720 and 1080.

How to repair your windsurf boom grip

by Maarten on February 13, 2012

You probably have had it. Your favorite windsurf boom start to lose its grip. Especially with booms that are really durable. Simply because you can use them a longer and therefore you use them more intensely. I’ve had my last Neilpryde carbon boom for at least 5 years before I broke it and the grip was loosening on multiple places. Tim Hemer wrote an excellent guide on how to repair your boom. That way you can still enjoy your boom for many years to come. Go check it out.

Thanks Tim!

Windsurf video: Starboard movie 2012

by Maarten on February 9, 2012

Windsurfer international magazine released its 26th issue. The piece of content I recommend you to check out is the Starboard movie. This video shows all the top riders from the 2012 Starboard team rippin’ on the most beautiful spots. You can compare it a bit to the Mistral Committed Reloaded movie. That movie was more focused on showing the new talented windsurfers. The starboard movie is more about showing the wide range of windsurfing boards Starboard produces.
