With the boards, I tested some of Patrik’s shapes while he was here. He knew exactly when I first tried his production board how I was going to sail it. From seeing my videos and checking my style he knew what was going to happen when I hit the water and rode my first wave. Exactly what he said would happen, happened! I was shocked. He really understands a riders needs and how they want their boards to be. He had watched my turns and my moves and already knew what sort of board I would want! Right now he made me some similar shapes to what I was using before, but now we’re working on some new designs that we hope will be even better than what I have already.
