Thommen1 are promising great things for 2008, including ‘new standards in board construction’. T1 has teamed up with an Italian composites engineer and a China based
producer specializing in high-tech composite structures in both the automotive and naval sector. Mixing this combo with Peter Thommen’s Swiss precision you’ll get a “unique mix of know-how, craftsmanship and resources. This unique partnership enables us to bring you an evolution and a revolution in modern board construction.”
“Together with a one hundred percent accurate reproduction of Peter’s master
models you’ll experience what Peter describes simply as ‘the real thing’.
When asking him after his findings of our new construction, he smiled and
confessed ‘this is an absolute fi rst in my career: I have the same sensation
on the molded board as I had sailing my prototype. Exciting!’
Experience the blessing of having no more graphics on your boards,
actually seeing again what the shaper has done to your stick! It’s commonly
acknowledged that Peter Thommen shapes are ‘bella machinas’, hand crafted
master pieces with fl ow throughout the rail shape, capped by a real nose and
tail – so why cover this up with ‘noise’ just because others do? Like a fresh
breath of air, T1 will leave the screaming to others and make a silent statement
of design by featuring plain white bodies with some stylish silver texalium
logos underneath our revoXskin wrap.”
