Marion Mortefon wins Defi! Nicolas Warembourg 2nd!

From May 14th to 17th, 1,200 windsurfers have written the legend in Gruissan by taking part in the biggest and most challenging windsurfing race ever. The famous Tramontana was actually blowing like hell on the four amazing but very difficult marathon races. Only 862 entrants managed to complete the course at least once over the 4 days of racing! After more than 100 km of racing against competitors and themself in this pretty challenging conditions. Marion Mortefon won with her PATRIK slalom 87 the ladies competition – Lena Erdil became 3rd and Karin Jaggi 4th. Nicolas Warembourg got a super 2nd Place! Congratulations!!!

But more than a competition, t he Défi Wind is an unique “meet and greet” where pros and amateurs meet each others while sharing their passion for windsurfing.

Is a surfboard a piece of sports equipment or a design object? If you look at our boards, you’ll quickly see: it’s both! That’s why our design agency Pikka decided to take our boards to the renowned Swiss design exhibition Grafik 14 at the Maag Event Hall in Zurich. From 14 March to 16 March, Alex Strub from Pikka presents the PATRIK brand and our design with three original life-size boards. Now that’s what we call an authentic design experience!
