After 5 years I am back in Fuerte Ventura. It’s windy everyday and sometimes it’s even too windy. Before I came here I got a new Freestyleboard from Flikkaboards. It’s a compact Freestyle 207cm long, 62cm wide, 90l big. It’s awesome as usual. So I wanted to give this little baby a own Video and as there was a huge hightide we did a small session in the lagoon. Unfortunatly the Waterhousing steamed up very fast – so its just a few moves and positive vibes. As I got a new Freestylewavesboard aswell – there will be another Video soon 😉
It was about three years ago when I started thinking about making a really short freestyleboard. This was actually the first (and only) board I built myself. Vicky (the board) was about 215cm long and 60 wide – actually it didnt work that bad, but it was just mega heavy. In the meantime I signed up with Flikkaboards and we progressed their freestyleshape. At the point where I thought the board doesnt need any change I tried a small „Compact Waveboard“. From that moment on the „short“ freestyleboard was back into my mind. So I asked Luka about building a proto – I ended up taking a 210cm long 90l Freestyleboard to Capetown and everybody was really sceptic, me too! During the trip I was using the proto more than the normal board, because I fell in love from the very first moment on. Although there were quite some things which were not perfect.
