Luderitz Booms

Jan Maixner with my handmade superlight X-booms with Streamline heads.
When it comes to simple things as booms. Especially short racing booms, anything will do, right? Well thats not what I think. I have many different makes, and well AL360 is alright. But not any boom in the world can be compared with an X-Boom. A kilo lighter, 200% stiffer, oval grip and the best; cork grip! And I can choose boom-head.
This year I have used X-Booms for the big sails like 8.6, 9.2 and 9.6, but now I also buying for the small sails. They are not inexpensive, but I get what I pay for. And they will probably last for very many years.

Luderitz boards 2013

Carbon Art SP4X
The last 2-3 months the designers, shapers and custom builders of windsurfing boards have been occupied. Small narrow blanks; 39-43 cm wide. Narrow but also a bit thinner than usual. Sandwich and high quality carbon...  Light. A lot of speculations about rocker lines, v-shapes, aerodynamic deck, assy set-ups etc etc.

When I got the question today - "Do you have any special made board for Luderitz in production" I answered "doesnt everybody has that?".

There are so much speculations about what to build. For me this is a big adventure and the proven constructions is my cup of tea. Off course also with some improvements. So I will bring a handful of boards with me. Stay tuned for more!
