The GT came to life after we developed the Allwater Race boards. When we realized how stable, fast and easy to paddle this shape was we immediately knew that we found the ideal formula for a performance oriented tourer. The main strong points of this magic shape are; high volume in the nose and the tail area for lift and stability in all conditions, wide square tail and the concave bottom for ultimate in stability and water line efficiency. The boards work great in rough water conditions, on downwind runs and in flat water – the true Allwater shape.
The bungee tie downs for “carry-on” items make sure you have everything for a comfortable cruise. The Allwater GTs come in the BIAX technology.

For 15 years I worked for F2 and shaped many popular boards like the Comet Slalom or the Xantos ranges. Since 2000 I am with JP and am responsible for the whole board and fin range. It is always a great feeling when one of my boards like the Freestyle Wave turns out to be a test winner and becomes a successful best seller. Especially when you see happy people on the water with this board.”
Philosophy: do not be too serious, just go windsurfing
“I often get asked how we can come up with new products every year. Some people are suspicious and believe it is all about marketing and nothing is really new. The truth is, I learn something new with every single prototype I build and test. Sometimes it amazes me what big effects small changes can have and that allows us to improve the boards again and again. That’s driving me, as I know there is always room for improvement.”
