Adding to an already long list of milestones, Severne is extremely pleased with this new announcement. Philip has already been in Australia to test out all the latest Severne board and rigs combinations with our R&D team deciding the best combinations for the next season.
Needless to say that Philip puts his gear through the test in his pursuit of world titles and requires the utmost performance out of it. The same ideology which has been put into the revolutionary Blade Pro sail design, which helps keep Philip on the top of the podium, is already being applied to the successful Severne board program. And with the added input of the World Champion, the future looks bright.
Severne has been leading the revolution of gear development from the ground up since the beginning. Our reputation is built on confidence and the refusal to compromise on our design principles. And Philip Köster joining us as a full rider is yet another stamp of approval of the Severne design principles and mission… to create the best, most responsive gear to help you get the most out of your windsurfing!
More from the world of Severne
Simon Bornhoft explains on how to take your gybing to the next level and give your Dyno that extra zip, grip and a real surge of scintillating speed through the corners.
If you’ve struggled to control over powered gybes, challenging chop, excessive board speed or you’re just wanting a faster exit, being able to overseheet your rig and carve harder is a massive part of your progression. So we’re going to help take you and the Dyno into the faster, tighter turns with added confidence and greater exit speed.
Despite the relative isolation and protection from modern day scourge of viral affliction, the Kiwi’s at the bottom of the World enjoy some pretty special moments. One of which occurs annually each October; centred around the sensationally rugged West Coast NZ surf capital of Taranaki.
Way back in Dec 2019, Simon Bornhoft tried and tested the new Severne Alien & Redwing Foil set up at Severne HQ in Perth. Having now had one of the early release Aliens for the last month, it is time to hear about what to expect from this addition to the Severne range. Plus, we get some impressions from Simon’s Windwise clients who were lucky enough to have had a close encounter with the Alien!
As the fall season is making its mark all across Europe, one event at Lake Garda in Italy turned heads all across the world. A fleet of red sails took over the lake for an incredible week filled with action. A record setting junior and youth clinic followed by the 2020 Garda International Games left no doubts about the full potential of this new, exciting evolution of windsurfing.
50knots+ winds hit the beach of “Le Jai” in Marignane located in the south of France, just in time for the second stop of the French racing tour. Severne rider Benjamin “babou” Augé took third place. Check out these crazy images.

The first ever Singapore Wind Foil Nationals was concluded October 4th 2020 and was a major success. The 2-day event was hosted at Aloha Sea Sports Centre and organised by the Singapore Sailing Federation.
For this issue Simon Bornhoft continues the quest to give you the best possible gybes. So if you combine the Dyno’s super smooth easy turning qualities and the core Windwise skills that have enhanced thousands of gybers, you’re going to be cranking those corners!
