GPS Windsurfing

We are thrilled to announce a live GPS connection to the video timed "Driven by Wind" attempt in Southend which is organised and set up by Dave White.

Drivenbywind.com and Gps-speedsurfing.com team up to present you the start of this new era. Video and GPS timing will be combined to promote this official WSSRC video timed record hunt, which with the help of GPS can be followed by all interested parties world wide.

Coming Tuesday January 15 2008, this combined record attempt takes off with a test race at this super fast English spot on the inlet of the river Thames. The spot is located east of London.

Team Fanatic

We are proud to announce that German Freestyle talent Andre Paskowski (G-2) and Swiss lady Laure Treboux (SUI-4) have joined the Fanatic International Windsurfing Team!

With Laure onboard, our girls team with Nayra Alonso and Yoli De Brendt is stronger than ever and the three ladies are already looking forward to train together.

Andre is one of the world's best Freestylers (EFPT Champ 2006 & 2007) and also good friends with our 2007 PWA Freestyle Vice Champ Gollito Estredo. At the moment the two are training together in El Yaque and for the future they are planning lots of projects together, wait and see!

Fanatic Brand Manager Craig Gertenbach: "I´m happy to welcome Laure and Andre, both fit really perfectly into our Fanatic team and show the youthful enthusiasm for windsurfing that our sport needs and lives from!”

Andre Paskowski: “I’m very stoked! I think that at Fanatic the atmosphere between riders and company is very good. Fanatic is known for their young team, good wave and freestyle boards. So all in all I thought – I will fit perfectly in the team!””

Laure Teboux: “Fanatic simply makes awesome boards, has a great image and a young dynamic team. I'm really proud to be part of it!”
