GPS-WEED releasedJune 20, 2018
We wish you all a healthy, successful and windy year 2018!!!!
2017 ended as started – very busy. We like to thank our team riders for the great support we got in 2017. 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 2018:
- We recognized in the last years an increased amount of weed growing at several windsurf spots making the use of standard slalom fins more and more difficult. Additionally the amount of plastic waste (especially plastic bags) at several spots is making windsurfing dangerous and in competitions a source of loosing a heat, elimination or the complete event. Starting Q2-2018 we will offer a high end weed fin that can also be used under slalom boards without making the board feel sticky. The trim needs just to be a bit adjusted for good performance.
- We will continue to offer the SL-X as very universal slalom fin in different carbon layups.
- The GPS_6 model will be continued in 2018 as we received such positive and often enthusiastic feedback by our customer doing new PBs with this fin model. Development wise we will concentrate on optimizing the smaller sizes (20..26cm) as we tested very successfully a prototype in Lüderitz doing 90km/h in low2medium winds and being faster than all asymmetrical fins used that day.
- We will also add a new high-end slalom fin model being in development since several month. We keep you posted about the details.
All the best for 2018,
Alexandra & Joerg
