GPS_6 Production ReleaseApril 3, 2017
We wish you all a healthy, successful and windy year 2017!!!!
A very busy year 2016 is history. We like to thank our team riders for the great support we got in 2016. We are quite happy with the development inside our team and also with the progress we made in new process technologies and fin designs.
New models/updates for 2017:
- In the last 6 month we designed and tested a new asymmetrical speed fin, called GPS_X2W, together with Peter de Wit. Series production starts next week. You can find details of this new model here.
- We got several requests by our customer for offering the SL-X also in sizes longer than 50cm to also use this model under the 85+cm wide boards. So we designed the XL-mold for the SL-X and produced and tested these fin sizes under the XL-Slalom boards. Series production starts next week.
- We decided to start the development of a Windsurf-Foil. We think that this “add-on” for a standard windsurf board is creating a high value-add to sailors who like to sail in low winds but dislike to sail with huge sails. Also many spots inside a country not having the stronger winds of the seaside can be sailed with a Windsurf-Foil in the “Flying-Mode” at significantly higher speeds than without such foil. The first proto-foils are produced and actually in the testing phase and we keep you updated about series start and testing opportunities.
All the best for 2017,
Alexandra & Joerg
