We just received a message from Dario Oliviero, inventor of the Starboard iDO, canvassing windsurfers’ support in his quest for this year’s big ISPO (international sports trade fair) prize. Currently in second place, our support could really make the difference. Even if you don’t want to blindly back the innovative mastbase system for beginners, checking out the opposition is quite entertaining: top of the pops right now is a skateboard brake, but there are some frankly weak and occasionally hilarious ‘new’ products on the list. A few potentially windsurfing-relevant ideas lurk amongst them too, including the KRUNK fin system. Anyway, over to Dario:
In collaboration with Starboard, we are trying to let people understand that it’s now very easy to start windsurfing, and with the iDO doesn’t take more than few seconds (check on http://www.star-board.com/2010/products/products_ido.php)
For this reason we are participating in the http://www.ispo-brandnew.com/ where the best idea over the world is supported. We need your contribution with a click because if we win for sure we will get much more people into our sport.
