Behind the Scene

Farrah Hall is the only American entered in the RS:X Class at the Princess Sofia ISAF World Cup set to run April 1 - 6. Kiting has been cancelled for this event due to poor pre registration.

A Florida wave contest is in the planning stage for the AWT in 2014. The Jupiter area is the top contender for location but Cocoa Beach is also under consideration.

A European interest has bought the intellectual property rights to the name Windsurfing Magazine and all the content of past issues. Their intentions have not been disclosed.

Simmer is working on a small wave board that would retail for under $1000, appropriately called the Frugal.

The PWA is in pursuit of a corporate sponsor to partner with for a slalom and freestyle event in the Bay area after the America's Cup.

KonaOne is prototyping a sailing SUP as a possible entry level board for slalom racing.

WeatherFlow will be phasing out its forum service to focus more resources on their core business of weather data.

US Windsurfing wants your input for a kite vs. windsurf race at the US Nationals this year. They would also like to know if prize money should be awarded.

Severne Enigma Wave Booms have the smallest diameter arms in the industry at 25 mm. I hear it may be the most expensive wave boom on the market.



  1. Clyde,
    Where did you see that notice about Weatherflow phasing out the forums?

  2. The Frugal. I wish! April Fools. The resurrection of Windsurfing mag would be nice.
