Patrik Diethelm has joined Loft Sails. The windsurfing brand has announce a new addition to the international team. The Swiss rider is changing his sail sponsor for the first time in 10 years.
Diethelm's experience and innovative vision will be an added value for the brand and for the upcoming racing season. Loft Sails jumped to the 2011 PWA podium thanks to Ben Van Der Steen's great season.
Ludo Jossin, Antoine Questel and Lena Erdil also helped Loft Sails finishing third in the PWA Slalom sails constructor ranking. It was the best season ever for the brand with the first time ever PWA podium position for Ben Van Der Steen and the European IFCA Youth title.
Loft Sails was founded in 1998 by Monty Spindler after designing for Neil Pryde, North Sails and finally A.R.T, where his designs achieved many speed records.
With its philosophy of maximizing the wind range while minimizing the number of sail lines presented to the market, Loft Sails designs began winning international magazine tests since the very beginning, excelling in construction, durability and performance.
Then, titles started coming with national championships (France, Spain) and International events, such as ISA Speed constructor ranking.
