There have been a lot of rumours flying around over the past few months that Arrows Sails are finished.
It is a fact that Arrows will not be renewing contracts with any of their sponsored riders eg. John Skye, Jonas Ceballos, Peter Volwater, Karin Jaggi etc. However the brand IS NOT finished!
Arrows was operated by Global Sports Sri-Lanka under license from Boards & More. Boards & More however have recently sold their interest in the factory and therefore the license is no longer in place. So what does this mean for Arrows Sails?
Well Boards & More are looking for a new Licensee for Arrows sails! In the meantime the 2006 sails (which have been rated in many tests as their best yet!) will continue to be produced right through next year, until a new license can be established.
The famous Arrows mast bases and extension\'s will continue to be produced (along with all other components) however, identical bases and extensions will soon be available also through F2.
We are led to believe that although the 2006 range of sails will continue to be produced and sold, there will be no 2006 team rider contracts, no advertising and no further investment under Boards & More until a new licensee is found.
So..... if you have some money to invest and have always wanted to get involved in the windsurfing industry, maybe this is the oportunity you have been waiting for!!
