Peter Volwater: he nows what starboard means

Peter Volwater has joined the Starboard windsurfing team.


The versatile Dutchman will be sailing with iSonics under his feet and KA sails in his hands. He has just finished third in the Lancelin Ocean Classic marathon with his new equipment.

"I will continue to pursue my ambition to win PWA races and also to defend the Dutch National title. I'm training and preparing for it here in Margaret River, Western Australia at the moment", says Peter Volwater.

"Having fun in windsurfing is the first priority and, after all these years, I still love to ride as much as when I started. Equipment plays an important role in that, and I simply felt the need to have the best equipment."

Peter Volwater was born in Purmerend, near Amsterdam, Netherlands, on the 22nd May, 1975. He started windsurfing in the late 1980s and, with the full support of his parents, he was able to pursue his passion for the sport and complete his economic studies.

Volwater turned professional in 1996. Although he is considered a complete rider in all disciplines, the Dutch decided to dedicate his time solely towards the wave and slalom contests.
