The same wave length

We tell a story of community, alliance and common interest. Surfing builds bonds held together by the passion for the sport and our team is no different. From different walks of life, we all share a common goal - to pursue our dream of surfing.

Each member of our small and selected team forms an integral part in the development and improvement of our products. The board you end up riding is created by their expert opinions, experiences and stories.

A growing family united by a common cause, this is what our team is all about. We are proud to support our riders as they progress and elevate themselves and the sport at the same time.

Kathi Gappmayr

The Legend | Kathl started river surfing when most of the kids surfing Eisbach today weren't even born. She has won the European Championship consecutively more than anyone else, as well as River Riot and other contests. Coming from a strong snowboarding background she has a true river surfing style. Nowadays she’s more of a freesurfer than a contest rider. Kathl is one of the best, not only on artificial waves but also on open river waves.

The Machine | One of the most talented river surfers you are likely to see. You’re in for a treat if you catch him tearing up Eisbach hitting his BS Reverse, to name just one. This kid is ripping big time. At his young age he has already won a European Championship and is a hot contender on the Rapid Surf League. His stoke for surfing is comparable to a Duracell Bunny on speed.
