The rumours are finally true, Tonky Frans has signed to Patrik Diethelm and Sailloft Hamburg for the coming season. Over to Patrik and Sailloft international for more...
We are happy to announce that Everon (Tonky) Frans (NB-7) is now a member of our Freestyle Team.
With his great experience being top ranked in the PWA over countless years he will push our team to a higher level. Together with our international riders Adi Beholz and Adam Sims he will have an important role in the development of PATRIK Freestyle Boards and SAILLOFT Freestyle Sails.
In the past I have been on Patrik shapes and he made me some really amazing boards that made me perform really good and I am convinced he is one of the best shapers! Believe it or not Patrik can do freestyle moves and I saw him doing some really sick Flakas. So when I ask him for special characteristics he knows exactly how to shape the best board for my demands.
SAILLOFT has a high reputation with their sails in the international freestyle scene. I had a cool visit the loft in Hamburg. It´s amazing to talk with the sail designers Olaf and Gerrit about the development. I am glad with the 2016 Quad and will give my best to improve it further in future.
In the next two months I will train in Bonaire with my new gear to be well prepared for the first PWA Freestyle Events in 2016.
I never lost the hope to crone myself with a freestyle world champion title. Maybe it will take me more than 10 years but I still believe that I can get the title….“
