Lost a great friend

The spring kicks in with a breeze of warm air at Lake Neusiedlersee and motivated to sail today on my homespot. It was an extraordinary windsurf . I dedicated my todays windsurfing session to PER. He went away from us. It was warm, beautiful, fast, powered up outside at the water, like he liked it. If he would have been with me, I would have been sailing 5 knots faster for sure. We pushed ourselves while testing or at the party after a hard day of work. “I will never forget about all the time we had together.”


Per Andersson has risen to become the backbone of the Starboard development program in understated style. Quietly going about his job with passion and energy, Per not only tests and designs prototypes, he also manages daily workshop production, weekend testing and general development communication. The new Active technology with integrated flex is Per’s brainchild. Together with Eric Metrot, the pair have been secretly developing this revolutionary hollow construction in Western Australia over the last 5 years. This year, limited edition Evo XTV Active boards are unveiled for waveriders to experience a whole new sensation of integrated flex. Per’s CV experience covers board shaping, sail testing, retailing, heading the Swedish Funboard Association, running demos, clinics and competing on the PWA pro tour.
