TIGA and Maciek Rutkowski are super excited to announce they’re 2024 collaboration! 🔥🤩

MR: „Such a relief to finally announce my board sponsor! So many of you were guessing and nobody guessed it, ha, loosers! 💩👎🏻 I grew up sleeping with a Tiga board, I wanted a HiFly but my dad forced me and then I grew to kind of like the feel of its deckgrip on my face . He wouldn’t let me sail it so I craved it and now after 20 years I finally rode one! Feels super sick the new innovative nose design really helps my foil jibes and they even let me customize my footpads, so the purple fits my sails 😍 This is next level input, can’t wait what’s next!!”

TIGA: „@matteo_iachino and @amado_vrieswijk.nb20 were already taken and @bob_vandeburgt wanted too much money so Maciek was a no-brainer! He has already proven his value by giving amazing footpad feedback and is now really pushing the envelope with the screw R&D! 🔥 For the shape of the boards this year we decided to listen to the people (on Facebook) and went narrower and longer - we are a legacy brand and we’re sticking to our legacy guns, both on shape and technology so Maciek will be riding our original Custom Ultra Full Toast Plastic technology. We can’t wait to see what he’s going to achieve on tour this year!”

Bye bye Challenger Sails. 👋🏻 After 6 years of very successful cooperation it was time to part ways. From trying the sails first time in Tarifa in December 2017, catapulting while leading my first PWA final in my very first event with them in Korea 2018, winning my first PWA race the very next event in Japan, getting on the podium a year later and finally winning a World Title and holding World number one for almost a year. 🤯 Loads of memories, also the ones behind the scenes, long design calls, millions of drawings, emails, finally finding a way to do much more with much less. Thank you Claudio, Palmino and all my teammates over the years - I had a blast! 🔥

Some might find the timing of this odd. After all contracts expire in December and by then normally everything is settled. Normally being the key word here. I understand the tough financial position of the windsurfing industry. I understand I lost the world title in the last event. I can understand everything. But I dont understand how after 6 years and all these amazing accomplishments together you can turn around and say “I won’t pay you” and that’s it. So I sent reminders, offered payment plans, waited, stayed patient, believing in basic human dignity to honor an agreement. Well, that never happened, so it seems this story will have another chapter… and it’s not gonna be a pleasent one unfortunately. Such a shame things can go from lifelong friendship to a legal battle so quickly… I will never understand it, but I guess this how life goes. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Luckily tons of positive news coming soon as well! 🙌🏼

This was probably the first moment when all that work really showed on the big stage 🙌🏼 Almost 5 years ago already, a lot has changed! 👀

A to był prawdopodobnie pierwszy moment kiedy całe ta praca za kulisami wyszła na światło dzienne 🙌🏼
