2007 Constructors’ Championship Rankings Released



Battle of the Boards

Thailand-based Starboard head the boards rankings after helping their riders fly into no less than 5 year-end podium positions.

Close behind were the Fanatic team, with wave series runner-up Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / Simmer) pushing hard all season including two key event victories in Guincho and Gran Canaria. Although Fanatic didn’t quite make the podium in the ladies rankings they were proud their leading lady Nayra Alonso (Fanatic / Severne) took the honors by winning her first event overall in Sylt.


Sail Brand Skirmishes

The competition amongst the sail brands is no less intense. Limits were pushed more than ever before and the real winners are ultimately the consumers who’ll benefit from this form of high pressure testing.

North sails topped the leader board, including a clean sweep of the year-end podium in the women’s wavesailing tour, which was won for a second consecutive year by Iballa Moreno (North), and a second successive freestyle title for Daida Moreno (North).

The famous twins have now won 17 world titles between them entirely using their long time sponsor’s sails. Elsewhere the famous white foils earned a third world title with Karin Jaggi (F2 / North) in the Slalom racing


There are no surprises to hear NeilPryde made the top 3 in the constructors rankings either, completing another trophy heavy season in second overall, and the Slalom world championship theirs to boast for two years in a row courtesy of Antoine Albeau. Pryde’s newest signing also gave them something to cheer about. Aruban teen freestyle prodigy Sarah-Quita Offringa (Starboard / NeilPryde) finished second overall including a useful win to open the season with in Lanzarote.


Legendary sail brand Gaastra finish the season with their heads held high after cruising back into the top flight of the standings, this time in third overall. The highlight of the year for Gaastra is of course the world title Marcilio ‘Brawzinho’ Browne has brought home but also the domination they’ve experienced in the freestyle fleet. At the PWA Fuerteventura Grand Slam the team filled all of the top-5 finishing slots to drive their point home, and can flaunt that half of the riders in the top-10 overall in men’s freestyle for the season rode their equipment.
