Jimmy Diaz signs with F2

F2 Windsurfing is proud to welcome the top formula and slalom racer Jimmy Diaz in the F2 international team.

Jimmy has performed extremely well in the slalom and formula discipline in the past years and will play a major role at the PWA tour again in 2006.

Jimmy: “My main reason for changing is, that I believe in Patrik’s ability as a shaper. Last year I raced formula and slalom on F2 boards and was super happy with them. All four models were extremely competitive and showed great consistency. I don’t believe any other company had the performance and consistency across their entire racing range. I have seen how diligent and meticulous Patrik is in designing and shaping boards and how much effort he puts into them. This gives me great confidence to race on his boards. Bottom line is that the boards are solid, consistent designs that have what it takes to win races.”
