Talking about funky tails, paralell outline, carving on the edge or the whole board or just turing on the tail, what do you recond after looking at this video? Is this just the marketing divisjon taking it to extreems or does it explain what is put into this board? Has anybody sailed it?

Watching the Severne team in Pozo it looked like a super good board; Baptiste Cloarec especially turned really well on it. I’m not sure about the technical aspect of how wel it sails but just from watching people use it, it looked
pretty good.

Back to a pointy nose I see?
I think much better in chop.
Not sure much else has changed. Certainly the marketing blurb hasn’t!

I think the main thing that came from the stubby revolution wasn’t the nose shape, it was the rails that led to them. So now we can have nice rounded noses with the same performance as the unsightly stubbies :D

That‘s why I bought the simmer freegal some years ago. In the waves nobody needs a catchy nose. And the old nano nose was catchy.

The NANO is a pretty sharp looking board. Marketing video is well done too. Performance?

Anyone know where Severne boards are made?

Can someone explain why the board's rear traction pad has such a high tail kick?
I understand the concept of having that feature on a surf board but can't see the value of having a kick on a windsurfing board when your rear foot is buried in the strap.

Thanks!

Severne’s marketing and brand image/aesthetic is really well done.

They’re made in a factory in Vietnam, I think the same place as Simmer are made? Not sure on that.

I think the pad kickers are to make it look cooler :lol:

Severne boards are made in China. They use concrete molds. I heard the factory is bought by Cobra now.

What does the construction process look like using a mold? Does Cobra use molds?
