There is a new name on the plaque of champions – Alexandre Cousin from France is the 2016 Formula Windsurfing World Champion. To claim his first world title Alex won with his PATRIK Formula 4 Airinside 3 of the 7 races completed and posted consistently high results in the others, finishing the championship with the lowest overall score before discarded races.

After Steve Allens European Championship Title is this the second Title for PATRIKs Formula 4 Airinside.

Julien Quentel finishes his first season on PATRIK Boards with a great overall result!

Having started the year with a double sponsorship (to PATRIK and Avanti) change, for many it was uncertain how ready and how competitive Julien Quentel would be on the PWA Slalom World Tour.

Korea: 5th Place
Costa Brava, Spain: 18th Place
Fuerteventura, Spain: 5th Place
Hvide Sande, Denmark: 5th
Grand Slam in Sylt: 3rd in slalom, 25th place in freestyle and 17 in the waves

Overall Julien managed to position himself in 4th overall for the season.
Out of 18 eliminations he sailed in all of 16 finals!
An amazing statistic and stability throughout his season. Very few can boast this level of consistency and ability over so many events!

Thank you Julien for this outstanding first Season on PATRIK!

Danish Wave and Freestyle Championship: Rasmus Øgelund Danish Freestyle Champion! Caro Weber Wins Wave!

End of October, the Dansk Braetsejler Organisation (DBO) organized a really nice wave and freestyle event in Klitmöller, which should crown the danish wave and freestyle champion. The event was also opened for German sailors. Next to our danish freestlye hotshot Rasmus Øgelund, Claudius Hofbauer and Caro Weber from Germany took part, too. With three days in a row of cold easternly wind (starboard tack), a full wave elimination and a single elimination in freestyle could be completed. The level on the water was very high and everybody was pushing hard.

Our PATRIK-Teamriders did a pretty good job with Rasmus finishing 2nd in the freestyle event and therefore securing him the well-deserved danish championship! Congratulations! Caro managed to win the event after a pretty close battle with Sara Sommer. For his first ever windurfing event, Claudius performed very good, too ending up in 9th position in wave and in 5th position in freestyle!
