A compact range of Thommen signature shapes. The result of Peter’s lifetime experience, the input of T1 product manager Mark Thoms and feedback of our team. Don’t worry, our team consists of people like you and me, so all shapes are tested and proven to work in ‘Real World’ conditions. This makes our Masters the “Can’t-Go-Wrong” choice for most windsurfers. Although the basic shape is outlined, there’s still some room for customizing your next board. Preferred stance and spread. A few liters more or less. A special paint job. Tailored reinforcements. No problem, everything is still possible.
This is it. Recreational windsurfing revisited. Effortless planning in the lightest of breezes. Super smooth, yet remarkably quick, responsive and maneuverable. No need for huge, high priced professional-grade racing sails, any freeride or freemove sail will do although we can highly recommend the brand new MORPHO 6.9-7.6-8.4 or EZZY’s highly rewarded Cheetah 7.0-7.5-8.0-8.5.
There’s no ‘power hump’ to overcome. A specific Thommen golden area rocker line and a vee-to-quad-concave bottom shape make for a gradual transition from gliding to planing and iron out chop like nothing else. Yet, unlike other “special light wind” boards, the Gleitwunder is efficient and remains truly fun to sail when the wind picks up. The super thin hull concept, combined with a ‘step rail’ design, is forgiving and promoting easy control for all levels of sailors, from beginner to expert.
Cruising around the bay? Anytime, any conditions. Carving jibes? No problem. Playing in open ocean swells? Bring it on. Chasing your buddies around the course? Hell, why not?!
The GWR is designed with a tri-fin setup. As a standard, there’s a Powerbox or Tuttle box in the rear and two Slotbox10 in front. K4’s shallow water fin, the TIDE in either 28 or 30 cm plus two K4 Rockets in 12 or 13 cm is available to you as a set for only €50. A set of blankers to cover your empty slot boxes is provided with every GWR. Four snug WiNDgear footstraps complete the package.
Should you wish to upgrade your GWR with the legendary GT-9 fin from GASOIL fins, there’s an additional charge of €250 for a full carbon fin (40cm max and Tuttle or Deep Tuttle only). As the Gleitwunder is an ideal foiling platform, you can also order it with a dedicated Foil box. For this option add €150 to the total.
Gleitwunder. Producer of happy faces.
The Gleitwunder XS is how we can best describe this new sensation. The HPG is featuring an identical ‘Low Entry Nose’ as the GWR but to compensate for the shortened length we’ve added some serious concaves into the equation, This Deep Double Concave hull is boosting lift to the max so you get going quicker than your peers sailing similar sized boards. The slightly sharper rails of the HPG are to enhance the low end performance but soft Bevels will help you control the board in more wind and nasty chop. The rounded outline guarantees sublime jibing. Alike the GWR, the HPG does not need big sails, we use 7.5 down to 5.0. Nor does it need big fins, we reccommend 36 up to 42cm depending on the brand/model you’re using. The deep concaves make this a single fin concept board, so no tracker fins possible. As a standard the HIPERGLEIT comes with a reinforced Deep Tuttle box so it is Foil Ready. Are you looking for a compact size, super early planing rocket? Look no further.
*uni-color to show the bottom shape but we can make the HPG any custom color you want.
Better speed, tighter turns, more thrills. The CROSS-R is the new improved version of the original T1 Cross-X, a globally recognized benchmark for ‘wave/slalom’ boards. The modern slightly wider and shorter shape improved planning performance. Insane acceleration, blistering speed and precision control remain prime ingredients. Slalom speed with wave board like handling. ‘Ultra Thin Rails’ guarantee precision control in all your turns with superior grip making the CROSS-R the ultimate carving machine.
The CROSS-R comes standard with either 3 or 4 complimentary WiNDgear footstraps, depending on you choosing the free-ride or free-slalom configuration. A carbon powerbox is fitted with a complimentary K4 FANG freeride fin in 30, 32, 34 or 36 cm.
Should you wish to upgrade your CROSS-R with the legendary GT-9 fin from GASOIL fins, there’s an additional charge of €250 for a full carbon fin (35cm max in Powerbox). We also offer a K4 tri-fin set (3SW+trackers) for only €50 in case you want to sail it as a big waver, add €50 for the MORPHO G10 fin which is available in 23/25/27cm Powerbox.
The CROSS-R’s (free)slalom abilities work best with no-cam or mini-cam sails. We recommend sails ranging from 5.0 to 7.5 sqm. The sweet spot lays around 5.5-6.0-6.5 depending on the board size you choose. Among our personal favorites: MORPHO 6.3/6.9 and EZZY Cheetah 5.5/6.0/6.5/7.0. The CROSS-R also works with powerful wavesails from 4.5 to 5.5 sqm, we recommend either the MORPHO’s or EZZY Zeta but, yes, admitted, we’re biased.
Back to the future, again there’s one board capable to handle all conditions. Like the GWR, Peter went back to the Bullet and Sunset years using a stretched rocker line with a vee-to-quad-to-tri-concave for early planing and combines this with a little tail kick, thinner rails and wingers for control in stronger wind. Depending on the volume it hauls big sails, yet has plenty of control when small sails are needed. Equipped with a Powerbox and 2 Slotboxes one has all the options open for personal set up which makes it also ideal for shallow Holland waters!
A new T1 development and from day 1 among our bestsellers. A new toy for all waves, all spots, all winds. As a true ‘Euro-Waver’, the F-WAVE is fairly easy to sail and performs in all conditions. A combination of a fast CROSS-R inspired rocker with a WAVE-R like maneuver oriented outline. The fast rocker delivers excellent planning performance and speed. The moderately short rounded outline with its kink between the straps and its swallow tail underlines the board’s desire to shred waves. Our new ‘Medium Thin Rails’ offer sufficient float and superb control and grip in carving turns. The F-WAVE is a prime choice light wind wave board for lighter guys & gals or makes the perfect all-wave for those with a bit heavier constitution.
The F-WAVE is designed with a tri-fin configuration in mind yet performs perfectly as a single fin too. Set it up according to prevailing conditions and your preferences. As a standard there’s an 8” US box in the tail with two Slotbox10 mounted with a slight toe-in. Bigger models can be fitted with a Powerbox at no extra charge.
For the F-WAVE we recommend the drivey 3SW’s or the more radical Stubby’s from K4 with the Ezzy 1degree 10 or 12cm in front and we will charge you only €50 for the set. Spend €50 more for MORPHO’s 12K carbon/vinylester wave fin in 19/20/21/23 or even 25 cm. Three snug WiNDgear footstraps are complimentary, trust us they’ll be your new favorite slippers.
The F-WAVE works with a wide variety of wave sails: 5 or 4 battens, full or flat. The smallest F-WAVE’s easily handle 4.2 and 4.5. On the bigger F-WAVE’s we very much like the 4-batten powerhouse from MORPHO in 5.3 + 5.7 or go for EZZY’s Zeta in 5.5/5.8/6.4/6.8.
The all new WAVE-R opens the door to a new style of wave sailing. Step on and lift your performance to new levels. Turn tighter. Hit the lip harder. Rotate faster. The WAVE-R is a real confidence booster. Give it all you’ve got, and you will come out projected with precision and power to spare. A blend of Snow/Skate/Surf-Style best describes how the WAVE-R sails. At its best in small to logo high waves. The WAVE-R features a modern short, moderately wide stubby shape. The contour deck couples enough volume to keep you going in the surf with ‘Medium Thin Rails’ for insane grip in the tightest of turns.
The WAVE-R is designed around a tri-fin configuration; one 8” US-box in the rear with two Slotbox10 in the front. For only €50 extra you choose a set of K4 Flexy/Stubby/Scorcher 16/17/18/19/20 in the rear and two K4 Ezzy 8/10 in a 1-or 2degree angle in front. Add €50 to upgrade to MORPHO’s 12K carbon/vinylester wave fins in 16/17/18/19/20 cm. Three of the Snuggest ever WiNDgear straps are complimentary and will keep your feet planted in all situations.
To unleash the full potential of the WAVE-R you need modern four or three-batten sails providing ample forward pull with a good dab of downforce. Trust us: You’ll be unhappy otherwise. We recommend sails like MORPHO 3.4-4.7 and EZZY Elite. Some purists may even take it one step further with three batten sails like the EZZY Taka. Ideal sail size ranges from 5.0 down to 3.4, there’s no need for anything bigger as the WAVE-R planes up amazingly quick for such a short board.
To offer you a clear overview we’ve comprised the range to 6 models, please note that smaller, in-between and bigger sizes are possible as each WAVE-R is fully tailored to your needs.
The legendary ‘MauiWaveX’ reinvented. Featuring a new slightly wider/shorter body shape with ‘Ultra Thin Rails’, refined rockerline and a sweet looking ‘Swallow Tail’. Certainly one of the best all-round wave shapes on the market. The G-WAVE is surprisingly quick to a plane, sails relatively fast, feels nimble and lose, yet is always predictable and easy to control. Equally at home in all waves and winds, the G-WAVE is also a masterblaster on big lakes and loves to play in wind-swells. The easy of control is mind blowing, making it the board of choice for those days when men are separated from the boys.
The G-WAVE works with any wave sail; new or older profiles. We can highly recommend the new EZZY Zeta’s and the 3.7-5.3 from MORPHO. Each board size is developed to work from 5.3 down to 3.7.
The G-WAVE is designed with a thruster set-up in mind to emphasize looseness and maneuverability. Yet, honoring its heritage, it also works perfectly as a classic single fin board. Obviously, the G-WAVE comes with a thruster set up; an 8” US box in the rear and two Slotbox10 in the front.
We can recommend fittings like K4’s Stubby 20/21/22 for the rear and two K4 Ezzy’s 8/10 thrusters with 1-degree toe-in. The K4 set is offered to you for only €50. Invest €50 more and you can upgrade to the 12K carbon/vinylester MORPHO wave fin in 16/17/18/19/20/21 cm. The G-WAVE’s standard equipment consists of three WiNDgear Snug footstraps, giving a new dimension to foot comfort.
Thommen custom boards are hand built by Peter Thommen in our own facilities in Scheveningen (Holland). With the master of shape boasting on 40 years + experience we can assure you we pursue the highest standard in building your board. As a standard we use only Hexcel® glass and carbon fibers on a Gurit® Corecell® SAN (more impact resistant than PVC) sandwich material which goes on top of the EPS foam core that we source locally. All our boards feature a 5 or 10mm Corecell® center stringer for enhanced longitudinal stiffness and longevity. For now, we laminate with Sicomin® GreenPoxy33®, a high-tech resin with over 35 % plant content and are testing the GreenPoxy56® with 52 % plant content. It’s our goal to make boards that last and it’s our firm believe that the longest lasting board is also the eco-friendliest board.

Best combination of flex, strength, impact resistance and price. A combination of top-quality glass and carbon fibers which are sandwiching the SAN foam on top of the EPS. All fibers are strategically positioned where their characteristics are most needed. Our signature ‘Carbo-X’ from 200gr/m2 carbon over the standing area for torsion control springs to eye and so are the additional layers of glass taping on the rails. Simply strong and built to last.
Full biaxial carbon (-45°/+45°) on deck and bottom with additional glass rail reinforcements and our Thommen’s trademark ‘Carbo-X’ on deck. These boards are perfect for those who appreciate a light, stiff and reactive ‘carbon’ feeling. More fragile than our ‘Strong’ construction and weaker because of its high stiffness, so don’t drop or jump* them. Excellent choice for those searching for early planing freeride boards that will be handled with care.
*jumping breakage is excluded from warranty.
The full biaxial carbon deck and S-glass bottom are forming a strong yet light performance board that will suit the most demanding riders. Our ‘Stronglite’ is clearly stiffer and more dynamic than our basic ‘Strong’ construction, however more carbon makes it also more fragile to impact than the basic version. Tip: only choose this construction when you know what you’re doing. As most of us don’t have a clue, we strongly recommend the strongest version.
