I started with windsurfing in ’86 and from ’99 with kitesurfing. In 1989 and 1990 I spent 2 years in the Columbia River Gorge. The rest mostly in the North Sea and other exotic places around the world.
My top seven favourite boards in order of time are:
- 1990: Hypertec 7.6 really small and one of the first light sandwhich windsurf board. For those nuclear wind conditions in the Columbia River Gorge.
- 1995: Radical 252, Amazing board, first double forward at brutal beach France.
- 2011: Mook strapped surfboard, great board to make aerial of the lips , lost this board in big waves in Morroco.
- 2013: Pukas P1, incredible kite waveboard which I could borrow from Mor in Klittmoler. Than I ordered one but unfortunatly it broke down in 3 months (actually it was a surfboard).
- 2014: Tabou da Curve 74ltr. When it is really big and windy I still use this windsurfboard. Once I went to a friend to ask him to flatten out the rocker by some mm’s , so it would plane a bit earlier. He said that’s pointless because this board has so much rocker, a few mm won’ t matter.
- 2017: Tabou da Curve 80ltr, a newer DaCurve with less rocker and a twin fin setup. Very Quick and wavy.
- 2019: Appeltree Applino noseless, it took me a while to figure out these boards, please read the coming tests to find out more…
