The Swiss windsurfer Balz Müller created a freestyle board, the “Trickstick” with an overall length below 200cm. “I was looking for the smooth feeling I have while spinning with a snowboard or skateboard,” Balz told us, who broke his fibula during a skateboarding session in autumn 2015. Therefore he removed the straps of his freestyle board to avoid any twisting or rotation of his leg.
We wanted to know more about Balz’s recovery, his own board creation and about his experiences of strapless freestyle windsurfing. Read more in our interview below.
“My „trickstick“ turned out as an unbelievable sick-stick.”
