EFPT Sailor Of The Year – Vote For Adam Sims

Adam Sims EFPT VotingFor the fourth time in a row the European Freestyle Pro Tour is looking for the EFPT Sailor of the Year. Some of the most impressive riders of this season have been nominated by the EFPT crew and eight made it into the final public voting on the efpt.net webpage.

After Adam Sims (Patrik/Sailloft) from the UK in 2012 and Adam Gavriel (Patrik/Sailloft) from Israel in 2014 the EFPT Organizers are already looking forwards to who will be YOUR EFPT Sailor of the Year 2015.

Once again Adam Sims made it into the nominations for the Sailor of the Year. Following the tour for many years now Adam turned into a routined competition sailor which he proved with some great results this year and an 11th place overall. Even more outstanding were his performances in the tow-in discipline that he keeps pushing a lot. He made it into every tow-in final this year and pulled the EFPT Tow-in Overall Champion title of 2015. Congratulation for that Adam!

To support Adam you simply have to go to the EFPT Sailor of the Year Voting Page and vote for Adam! Thanks!

Namibia Surfari with Adam Sims

Hands down the best windsurfing adventure Adam Sims has ever been on. All he missed were the waves, but we are sure he is going back for that.

Adam Sims: “Having spent two weeks in Namibia earlier this year I’m stoked to announce that myself and Flo Ragossnig are teaming up to offer the trip of a lifetime to this truly incredible destination with ourNamibia Surfari. Having travelled there together we were both totally amazed at how untouched this place was. During our entire trip there we saw just one other windsurfer yet we scored the best windsurfing conditions we have ever experienced.”

Patrik Diethelm joins Sailloft Hamburg

PD in Lüderitz_2After Karin Jaggi has joined the German brand Sailloft at the beginning of this year the other brain of PATRIK – Patrik Diethelm – joins Sailloft now. In the future he will be head of R&D for sailloft´s slalom and speed sails.

Patrik Diethelm: ”The dedication for developing windsurfing equipment has become stronger and stronger. So a much closer cooperation with a sail brand was what I aimed for my future.

Through the cooperation between Karin and Sailloft I also met the owners and designers Gerrit Maass and Olaf Hamelmann and I realized the opportunity to get custom speed sails designed to one off my different ideas from what is available on the market. Same as many team riders order custom boards from other shapers I felt that once in my life I want to have customized speed sails. It was actually the first time I could discuss and philosophize over every detail on a sail design including all reinforcements and stitches with two professional sail designers at the same time.

Going through this design process so many ideas crossed my mind and I really felt that I want to try them all. I would not just call Gerrit and Olaf sail designers but “dedicated craftsman of art in sail design and sail making”.

My aim to follow many more sail design ideas especially for Speed and Slalom Sails is very strong. After a good talk we agreed to cooperate after the end of my Loftsails contract period at the end of the PWA event in Sylt this year. I finally thank to Loftsails for all the great time I had in the past 3 years and it was a pleasure to ride such great sails.

Now I am looking forward to all the new opportunities in our cooperation with Sailloft Hamburg.”

Gerrit and Olaf: Already in the beginning of our conversation with Patrik we noticed that we were thinking in the same way. And instantly so many ideas came along which seemed worth to be realized that it would be a shame not to go for it. Now we are happy to have with Patrik one of the actual best developers for windsurf equipment in our team.
