Why F2 Barracuda is a different quad board?

At first glance, it is notable for its short length (between 221 and 223 cm depending on the volume), but what really makes it a very special quad is how fast it goes into  early planning. The problem that most quads have is that to get more grip they have to sacrifice top speed and early planning. In contrast, the F2 barracuda has managed to combine a good grip on the wave with an excellent early planning. It has been designed for European conditions, making it the perfect board for waveriding the kind of waves we have. Also it is notable for how quick it turns and for achieving the speed it at the bottom turns.The rider Kenneth Danielsen (D38) speaks about this fantastic board on the following video.

Extreme Windsurf (IMAX)

Here’s a video clip from the famous National Geographic IMAX film “Extreme”. In it there was some Windsurfing footage with Robby Naish, Bjorn Dunckerberck and Josh Ston in Hawaii. Some of you probably enjoyed them at an IMAX theatre, and most of you probably heard about them. Even though they were filmed a long time ago... they are very impressive.

If you can watch it in a big screen full hd (1080p) with your surround system at full volume.


Here are links to purchas the fil in DVD or Blu-ray.

Jesper Orth (AUS 10) signs up with F2 for 2012


Slalom racer Jesper Orth (AUS 10) signs up with F2 for 2012: “Before I joined F2, I tested the Slalom boards SX range, to be sure and most importantly that the boards will deliver on the race course. I did not take me long to recognise the potential as the performance was unreal. I tested the SX 135, 111 and 91 and straight away I felt at home with unreal acceleration, top speed and control. I can’t wait to get the 2012 boards here in Australia so I can tune all the gear up for an exciting 2012season. For the waves I ordered some Barracuda Quad boards. Not only do they look amazing but they work great on the waves and after talking to PWA wave sailor and F2 team rider Kenneth Danielsen, which got a 6’th place in Klitmoeller using these boards, I’m convinced to have a „fun & Functional” summer in WA.“

“There is a great feeling of energy infused into F2 over the last years’ time and it is evident that a lot of work has been going into „recover” the brand from their battle to being nearly „out of the game” to get back on track in big style. The new wobber of a F2 workbook with their entire product lines displayed over 111 pages for 2012 is a truly amazing achievement in fairly short time.”

Here is what F2 product manager Daniel Aeberli had to say: “WOW, the next Step is done. Now we look back to the season 2011 and we had an amazing year! And as we look forward to the season 2012, it’s just like dreaming to see how we get back on track more and more. Jesper Orth is just so perfect to expand the f2 family. It is not just about the great competition results he will achieve, it is about his knowledge and true passion.

He will be one of the most important guys in the Racing and R&D team. It is important to me to have people around who I can trust entirely and work with. And Jesper is the man and I am more than happy to give him a big welcome to the F2 team! Lets get it started …
