How to a make windsurfing sail

by Maarten on February 6, 2012

This cool video shows a time-lapse of how Ben Severne is building a Severe windsurfing sail. All the phases are shown. From getting all the panels ready, to putting the battens in the pockets, sawing on the mast luff and finally rigging the sail. Enjoy!

by Maarten on January 27, 2012

In this video, sail designer Artur Szpunar explains what the main focus points were during the development of the TR-8 racing sail. He also talks about what has been improved compared to last year. The TR-8 is MauiSails top of the line racing sail and will be used by sailors like Micah Buzianis (see Micah picking up his sails).

Want to know which sizes are available? Check out the specs over here.


And if you ever wondered what the best way is to rig your TR-8, then check this video out:

Dunkerbeck secures the slalom world title 2011

by Maarten on August 14, 2011

Bjorn Dunkerbeck managed to secure the PWA slalom world title with still one event to go. Congratulations to Bjorn! Good to see someone else winning again. Not that I have anything against Antoine Albeau but after winning several world titles in a row it is good to see somebody else win again. The same happened a while back in the Formula 1 where Michael Schumacher was taking all the wins successively. That became a bit boring after a while.

In my opinion it would even be better to see someone win who has never won before instead of Bjorn, Ben van der Steen for example. That will shows to the other windsurfers that it’s still possible to win a world title between all the “old” guys. On the other hand Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Antoine Albeau show how incredible talented they are because they are so consistent in their performances over the years.

Let’s see what will happen in Sylt, Germany. That will be the last race/slalom stop of the PWA Tour 2011.

Windsurfer International Magazine july

by Maarten on July 8, 2011

The Windsurfer International Magazine has been released for July 2011. No racing or slalom tips in this issue like other issues. For me the most appealing article was the Defi Wind event guide. I tried to participate in the Defi Wind a few years ago but due to the bad conditions no races were completed.

Go check it out:

But of course it would be better to go for free and spend some extra money on drinks for your friends (or yourself :-)). Mad Windsurfing offers you 2×2 tickets for you to win. Nice!

Boujmaa Guilloul had a big crash recently while attempting the triple forward loop. Luckily he is fine now. He has some footage to see what went wrong because the attempt was filmed with a GoPro camera. As you can see below, the crash is pretty extreme. Not strange that Ricardo Campello was wearing a helmet during his triple loop attempts.
