The Techno Windfoil 130 has just been recognized as an international class by World Sailing, the international sailing federation. This great recognition paves the way for a new development for this board which has already sold more than 1000 copies worldwide. An international windsurf foil one-design for young riders is born!
Young racers can now learn foil windsurfing, train to progress and race on a quality and world-renowned one-design support. They will be able, as on the Techno 293 OD, to access a circuit of national and international competitions where up to 5 World Champion titles can be awarded According to the rules of World Sailing.
Like the Techno 293 OD, the Techno Windfoil 130 (TWF130) now has all the assets o quickly become the essential one-design support for young rides and be a nursery for top athletes. This accessible one-design class puts the emphasis on the rider, not the support.
The Techno Windfoil 130 has already won over many windsurfers and clubs around the world with decisive advantages for riders, clubs and parents:
High performance - Ease of access and fly - Mixed use Foil and Slalom - Affordable price - Great durability - Ease of assembly - Not aggressive foil - European manufacturing
On the competition side, TWF 130 regattas have already taken place in several countries and the national federations were waiting for this recognition to integrate the TWF 130 into their sports plan. In France, the Sailing Federation already chose the Techno Windfoil for the demo event for the under 15s in 2021 during the French Championships and is renewing this experience in 2022.
After several international events in 2020 and 2021, the new Techno Wind Foil class will quickly set up a calendar of international competitions and work with national classes to develop and structure the TWF.
Marc Cardon, President of the International Techno class:
“ The TWF 130 responds exactly to all the wishes of individuals, clubs and sailing schools. It has already seduced many young people and clubs in several countries, beginners or confirmed and has demonstrated its abilities in regattas. This new stage will allow the class to organize World Championships which will give it a new sporting purpose and I am really very happy about it. It is the culmination of a long process. Thanks to TAHE. The Techno Class continues to grow to the delight of young windsurfers around the world. Long live the Techno class! "
