Woody Cookie is proud to announce that WC riders Jeroen kampscheur and Niels de Langen earned 3x Gold and 1x Bronze respectively on the 2017 World Para Alpine Skiing Championship.

The Hydrocookie is a kitefoil designed for free riding and cruising – and is perfect for kitefoil beginners, too! This shape is the result of two years testing and improving, resulting in a foil that is great to sail and build to last!
Two 20 feet hulls, two wings and one idea: What does it take to make this cat fly?
The answer is simple: Contact Woody. He will devote his knowledge, craftsmanship and energy to make it work.
In this particular case, Woody designed and created the daggerboard (wing) cases, made the cat wider by enlarging the beams and created the dolfinstriker. Last minute corrections were done onsite at the island Texel.
See the pictures in the slideshow, and the great (Dutch) movie of Mischa Heemskerk.
Want to see how durable the result is? Please look at the movie at 3.25 m!

Woody’s latest shape is the Freeride for Slalom/Race conditions. Size: 182×65 cm volume: 80 litre weight board: 4,5 kg weight complete with fins and straps: 5,8kg
The idea of F2, to combine two boards in one, is brought into practice by Woody Cookie shaper Bram Hoogendijk. Esthetics and function go hand in hand with the slide-over-tail.
Woody Cookie has built up an unique knowledge of seated kiteboards. Rapid prototyping with Paralympic sailor and kiteboarding pioneer Thierry Schmitters has resulted in a revolutionary board that enables Thierry to surf again.
More riders are riding Mr. Woody’s sitboards now, and the challenge is now moving towards other sports like sitsnowboarding.
If you start a production line it is obvious to use moulds or a computer.
Jigs ensure a constant shape and the possibility of hollow-construction. With the computer you make use of a machined cut model.
Molds give me the freedom of independence, without big milling machines, software bugs and good foam suppliers.
Another advantage of a hollow-board is that you need a little material, only for the skin and the ingredients.
The skin consists of a sandwich construction, carbon epoxy-hard foam/wood-carbon epoxy. Spot the foot positions in the deck, reinforced with woodycookie-veneer.
The ingredients consist of fin-boxes, trusses (stringers or ribs) and inserts. All these elements are prefabricated.
The main construction of the board is the hull. The ingredients are placed and closed by a cover. The cover is the deck.
The rail of the hull is monolith, creating an optimal construction.
With hollow-boards the challenge is the waterproofing. However, such as Frank Lloyd Wright at architecture said: “the issue is not whether the building is waterproof, but the question is how much water comes in”.
