Is there anyone you know who is fast but doesn’t enter competitions, who you think perhaps could do well? In The Netherlands there are a few guys who only post on GPS-speedsurfing.com and do amazing speeds. A few of these might mix-up the ranking in a event like this.
What are the latest developments in speed equipment? In general there is more of an evolution then a revolution. Together with Mistral, Severne sails and Black project fins I’m always looking for new ideas and developments. We are optimizing the equipment for more efficiency but also looking at other disciplines like the Americas cup. In my opinion they are so far ahead, we can and must learn from them.
