November 27, 2019 12:58 pm Published by Leave your thoughts


Okay, so you want to know more about the Dyno and how to get the most out of your board. We took the time to catch up with Severne Team Rider and international coach, Simon Bornhoft. His coaching system has developed the level of thousands of windsurfers on his Windwise clinic tour and he has probably spent more time on the Dyno than just about anyone else.

Simon, what has been your impression of the Dyno and why is it your most used board.

Since the first Dyno came into production, it’s been a constant companion on our Windwise clinic tour. We’ve taken it everywhere! Flat water freeriding, onshore bump & jump and down-the-line wave riding. No matter what we’re doing or where we are going, the Dyno works and has proved itself to be one of the most enjoyable, versatile, forgiving and rewarding boards we sail. When my clients jump on it, they don’t want to give it back! The ease, versatility, and performance allow you to concentrate on the really fun part. Plus, when it comes to gybing, it feels like you’re cheating! I’ve not sailed or seen a board that has assisted and delighted so many people in so many conditions. YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Simon took the time to prepare an in-depth setup guide to make sure you get the full potential out of your Dyno. Over the next 3 weeks, we will be covering all possible setups giving the benefits and negatives from each setup. After each update you can take time to experiment and find the set up that suits your level, style of sailing and the condition the best.
