In the world of windsurfing Patrik Diethelm is often distinguished by the courageous choices related to his creations. Next to the boards with “raised platforms”, those with adjustable cut outs, the “Airinside, New10014s”, here are also decidedly more conservative and traditionalist choices. The F-Ride Series 2020 falls into this category of boards. In a world now crowded with short, wide boards, Diethelm's choice appears to be a break in the face of more evolutionary choices. Patrik wanted to prioritise the ease of approthering and conducting.
Wide boards are well suited to novice beginners, but a more polished freerider has always wanted an easy product that can untie the claws when needed. A narrower, longer board ensures an excellent lead in a straight line, especially in the carrier gaits, allowing even great rays of jibe curve in jibe. The series 2020 benefits from different improvements, starting with a more graphic look “Energetic”, moving on to new, more comfortable pads and the presence of a Fin fart Tuttle foil ready.
Of course, these improvements help keep F-Ride still competitive in the crowded freeride segment. Construction has also undergone a marked change. Patrik eliminated the two lines in the 2019, to move to a single constructive solution. The new F-Rides are now built only on fiberglass bixial, sturdy and elastic, to better absorb impacts with the most insidious chop. Finally, the presence of the standard fin is also noted on the F-Ride boards.
