Dunkerbeck Leaves Thommen
Shock news as Bjorn Dunkerbeck leaves Thommen T1 Boards.
One of windsurfing’s most enduring partnerships has come to an end with the announcement that Bjorn Dunkerbeck has split from his long-time friend and shaper, Peter Thommen.
The move comes after Dunkerbeck sailed to victory on Starboard’s isonic boards at the 2008 PWA Alacati World Cup. Peter Thommen commented:
“ I am stunned by his sudden choice to switch gear mid season. I cannot but close a chapter – not only in my professional life, but in windsurfing’s history books as well. Yet there is always a new beginning; change is good. I am not one clinging onto times and memories past…”
At present, the Dunkerbeck camp has not announced a new board sponsor for the upcoming PWA Super Grand Slam in Sylt, from 26 September – 5 October.
