Long Distance Gun : A concept board ?
This is a special occasion as it is a historic board that we are now presenting!
The conception of this gun started in 2005! At that time, the great downwind races were looking promising: leaving downwind full speed onto the open sea with winds blowing above 30 kts appeared to me as the most thrilling discipline. We
have therefore developed this specific gun
shape but the trend then evolved towards
windward/leeward, inshore racing.
Deeply passionate about the offshore courses
we have carried on our developments with great
Alex and Charlotte have trusted the top places on the podium of the Leucate Mondial-du-Vent long distance race for almost ten years !
Alex has won the 2014 Defi Kite in Gruissan on the production board.
Alex has also won countless long distance races across those years, including the Cape Town and Perth events.
I have myself crossed the Gulf of Lion twice (100 miles per crossing) and established a record run in 2007 between France’s mainland and Corsica in 5h17min.
These gun boards have since been used for crossings on the open ocean between Mauritius and La Reunion islands or by Serge Occhipinti between the Martinique and St Martin islands. With such a successful record, these boards have always been in demand but we were jealously keeping the secrets of their great shape! With the demand growing further recently we have decided to start a production run to satisfy all those passionate about long distance.
