Production Board Registrations
New instructions have been published by ISAF for Production Board Registrations. At the forefront of this revision have been representatives of IFCA and the International Raceboard Class. The changes reflect the latest developments in board production and will encourage the development of competitive windsurfing in all disciplines - RACE, SLALOM, FREEWAVE and SPEED.
Key features: for IFCA, the revisions encourage multi brand participation, with sensible fees for board ranges (up to 5 models per range per fee);
for RACEBOARD, the opportunity for manufacturers of the new breed of 'Hybrid' boards to participate in developing racing.
