Slalom Board Developement 2017

PATRIK Slalom 2017

While most other brands already finished their development Patrik was waiting for the feedback from the first slalom worldcup event in Korea and keeps on pushing the development. Patrik has already spent one and a half months in France testing 22 prototypes which have been modified and retested again and again. After the next slalom world cup event in Costa Brava 20 more prototypes will go through a long testing period where riders are able and give the latest feedback from their competition experience.

Steve Allen wins Formula Windsurfing Nationals in Australia

Steve Allen competed in the Formula Windsurfing Nationals in Australia over the last weekend, and won alreade his first Formula Race on PATRIK. His weapons:

Board: PATRIK Formula V4
Fin: Boss 72 S
Sail: Reflex 7 sails.

Steve Allen: “I have to say I am really impressed with the light wind performance which was just amazing. I won all 7 races and was only one second to the windward mark where Justin Lord on another Patrik board lead that race to.

So in the end it was Patrik Boards in 1st and 2nd for the 1st time ever. I used the 12.5m in 5 races and the 11.5m in two races. I don’t remember the last time I won every race of an event, so I am really looking forward to my next FW race on my new gear.”

Congratulation to Justin Lord and Steve Allen for this amazing result!

Steve Allen´s report about his first race on PATRIK:

“Ledge to Lancelin marathon 2016.

I was neck and neck with Cyril on the first mark when I made the mistake of jibing on the boat getting mixed up in the kiters.

While Cyril smartly rode the swell longer and jibed wide keeping clear of the kiters and gaining 50m downwind advantage for the next reach which was extremely broad giving him an instant 100m odd lead.

Our speed was very similar and with the kiters starting before us made it easy for Cyril to follow them around the course taking away my local knowledge advantage where he was then able to hold onto that lead until the finish.

I was on Patrik 135 with 9.2m while Cyril was on 9.7m which also seem to have the advantage on the downwind legs with the larger sail. Which is a very important part of this race choosing the right equipment.

I hope to be able to make it back next year for the chance to win this great race again. Well don to Cyril for a smart move on the first mark and a good race to take the win ahead of myself in 2nd.”Steve Allen on PATRIK

Tonky Everon Frans joins PATRIK!

Everon Tonky Frans joins PATRIK

Another Clou for PATRIK! We are happy to announce that Everon (Tonky) Frans (NB-7) is now a member of our Freetyle Team. With his great experience being top ranked in the PWA over countless years he will push our team to a higher level. Together with our international riders Adi Beholz and Adam Sims he will have an important role in the development of PATRIK Freestyle Boards.

Tonky: “In the past I have been on Patrik shapes and he made me some really amazing boards that made me perform really good and I am convinced he is one of the best shapers! Believe it or not Patrik can do  freestyle moves and I saw him doing some really sick Flakas. So when I ask him for special characteristics he knows exactly how to shape the best board for my demands.

I never lost the hope to crone myself with a freestyle world champion title. Maybe it will take me more than 10 years but I still believe that I can get the title….”
