RRD 2011 Showcasing at NWF

We are showcasing our

new Wave cult Qu4d and S1ngle and Hardcore Qu4d and S1ngle wave boards.
The Cults offer a huge wind range for all wind directions and you can go for the Single classic feel or go for the Qu4d and some wheel drive to your sailing, giving you both looseness and grip in easy to sail package.
The Hardcores are for when it is going off and you require maximum looseness and control on those big and / or windy days. Choose from the grip and classic feel of the S1ngle fin or the Qu4d with the looseness of a twin combined with the grip of a single fin.

NWF VIP Fancy Dress Theme Superhero

The Fancy dress theme is superhero’s for this years NWF party…….. Not compulsory but should add a little flavour to the evening……

Boujmaa hits the UK scene and comes to the biggest event of the year

Boujmaa is one of the youngest competitors on the circuit and joined the PWA world tour as a youth.  He is a radical and inspirational sailor with a huge following on his local beach at Moulay in Morocco.

He plays a key role in the development of the wave and freestyle kit from Starboard and Severne – so if you have any questions on equipment, he can answer them.  Undoubtedly the biggest impact will be the opportunity to see such a flamboyant sailor in action, and listen to a few tales from around the World.  This is his very first visit to England – let’s make it a memorable one for him.

Vandal Sails comes to NWF

VANDAL SAILS Designed by Dan Kaseler (of Naish and Gaastra fame) Vandal sails are starting to take off in the UK, those who like sailing waves and have tried the RIOT compact wave sail have fed back very favourable reports, they especially like the fact that all sizes from 3.6 to 4.8 fit on a 370 mast the 5.2 and 5.6 on 400. Recent test in Boards and Windsurf magazines of the ADDICT and STITCH Freeride / Freerace sails have shown them to be at the top of the market for performance and handling. The STITCH is a blisteringly fast sail which is especially suited to those who want to go fast but not a cambered sail, we would go so far as to say that it’s downwind speed will better many camber induced sails. Demo sails will be available at National Windsurfing Festival. Vandal also have a range of masts, booms, harnesses and accessories which will be displayed on 4Boards trade stand at NWF For more information on Vandal products visit or
