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!

Rookie Class Brouwersdam is a young talent factory

The “Rookie Class” concept at Brouwersdam, Holland started back in 2016 and has been producing new windsurfers and world-class riders every year since then. 

Severne has been partnering with Rookie Class for several years – and has been following the great talent development in real time over the years. 

This year, we got firsthand accounts from the – already world-class – Rookie Class graduate Bodhi Kempen, the coach Mattijs van Dijk, and a current Rookie Class participant, Maud de Bruijn about the benefits of such a program – and what it means for kids.

For the Severne team, all riding on the new Mach 5 and HyperGlide 5 racing sails, it was successful, to say the least.
