Dunkerbeck Leaves Thommen
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.
