The New Severne
It's Out!


You may have seen the recent release of the new Severne Verso which has been two years in the making. As part of the R&D process we gained valuable input from Windwise clients using the Verso prototypes in a variety of locations and conditions including – UK, Bonaire, Alacati, Tenerife, Prasonisi and FeelViana.  

The out come is a fabulously user friendly progressive Freeride board that has become incredibly popular with those wanting a super early planing, controllable board that provides incredible stability and ease in the gybes.

This board is a game changer in ease of use, super early planing, gybing success rates and massively improving planing gybe exits.

“Feels like in a dream when you’re running with no effort – best session of the trip.



“The definition of an unfair advantage”


Progressive Freeride

After coaching thousands of windsurfers through the key stages of the sport, I wanted to assist in creating a Severne board that would unequivocally help to speed up the learning journey, improve the core planing Freeride skills and crack that elusive gybe.

“The Verso has that rare ability to help maintain stability and speed during the foot change and rig rotation – massively increasing gybing exit consistency and speed


The input came from years of testing and coaching experience and blending in what real windsurfers want. The Verso was so rigorously tested to maximise its appeal and create true value to recreational windsurfers.  

All the R&D was shared and blended into the Severne International testing with in depth feedback to liaise with guru board shaper Albert Pijoan and Ben Severne to ensure the best possible design was released – we love it and hope you do too. 

  • Simplified footstrap positioning for all levels 

  • Effortless linear early planing and acceleration

  • Smooth stable control and ease over chop

  • Specifically designed to make gybing easier for all levels

  • Stability, grip and predictability to massively increasing gybing exit consistency and speed

Thank you to everyone who tested the Verso and gave their feedback to help bring this board to life!

Oh SO Verso 
“Can I have a go!?”

“Fast onto the plane, fast getting you carve gybing and fast to produce a grin!”
