With the celebration of our 40th anniversary, we caught up with some of our Fanatic legends: Meet our shaper Sebastian Wenzel!

Sebastian Wenzel started windsurfing back in 1981, a time when he also began to create boards of his own. From 1985 – 2000, Sebastian competed in all disciplines. Filling the role of designer and shaper for Fanatic back in 1994, he introduced the premium CAD design process into windsurfing in 2004. His creative eye and passion for sport makes him a fundamental part of the progression and evolution of our lines, and the sport in general.
