Arthur Arutkin

Date of Birth:



Wissant, France


Race and Wave

Board Setup:

Falcon Carbon , Strike & ProWave


Arthur Arutkin grew up alongside his sister and Fanatic team rider Alice in the windsurf village Wissant in the north of France. His dad introduced him into Windsurfing with the age of 8 years and his passion for watersports kicked off from that day. By the age of 15 Arthur was european youth champion in the Slalom discipline, but then took his skills into the waves and entered the international stage of the PWA World Tour. When it wasn’t windy, he’d paddle out on the SUP and soon entered competitions in the Standup World Series aswell. In 2015 he finished 4th in the Standup World Series of the waterman league. Arthur is an international Teamrider for both, Windsurfing and SUP for Fanatic.

If you could be a character from a movie, who would you be?

The main character of "Limitless"

Which is your favorite Racing board and why?

I’m loving the Falcon 12’6“ x 24.75. I use it in almost any kind of conditions, because it’s stable, it’s super fast even without much waves and going downwind it just excels. If it’s glassy and longer distance, i like the speed of the Strike 14’0 x 24.75, but once there is some chop and a few competitors around me, i like the extra stability of the Falcon to just push harder.

What fin are you riding and where do you place it?

I quite like the Fanatic production fin, but for competition i’ve signed up with Select and i use their Keel fin in Medium. I use it all the way forward, as it loosens up the board in downwinders, so you can steer easier and connect the bumps.
