Philosophy

Our history

Ever since the late 80’s, AHD have developed and sold a large number of innovating and performing windsurf boards. These boards brought a lot of fun to very numerous windsurfers and a number of prestigious trophies to some of the best riders throughout the world.
Since 2008, Thierry Pen (Director), Bruno Andre (Brand Manager) and shaper Pascal Gerber have concentrated on developing new programs and creating innovating and unique products, all built in the high-quality OSS by AHD process.
The latest developments introduced by AHD all aim to reintroduce into windsurfing the specificities which made that sport’s success in the 80’s and 90’s, taking profit of progresses made in the last 25 years both in terms of performance and technology!
Of course, we keep-on developing a full range of boards for each and any discipline, windsurfing style or spot conditions.

Our mission

AHD is offering you an extensive range of windsurfing boards, covering all sailing conditions.
We permanently keep on innovating, to open new sailing grounds for you, particularly in light-wind conditions: our Seal, SeaLion, AFS-1 foil, Tactik sailboards are on the water to demonstrate this.
We have been capitalising on the combined experience of our staff and our riders to offer you highly refined and performing boards. DG, Fast Forward, SL2, and Zen boards shall flawlessly assist you in sessions to remember.
All of our boards are built in a One Shot Sandwich closed mould process, which allows double heated-curing of resins and grants our products an optimal weight-strength ratio.
For 2015, we have been further innovating and introduce new and unique constructions, with a PVC double carbon-skins sandwich on AFS-1 and SL2s, as well as PVC double carbon-Kevlar skins on the DGs, to try and achieve even more lightness and strength.
Windsurfing is our own passion and we are longing to share it with you.
See you on the water.
