Woodboard is an Austrian family brand, located on the windspot Neusiedlersee. Manfred, founder and engineer, a pioneer board shaper, was among the first producers of snowboards in the early 1980s. After discovering his passion for kitesurfing, he decided to apply his expert craft to his new sport of choice, and established Woodboard in 2011.
After losing his left hand indexfinger while shaping on a prototype the brand uses the slogan "nine finger shape".

enthusiasm into the face of our customers after the kitesession. For this, we work intensively
at the interface between man and water.
