BWS launches their new collaboration with Rawson Surfboards & Nanotune

Mar 28, 2013

BWS Pat Rawson

Pat Rawson signature series surfboards are a collaboration between Ben Wilson and Pat Rawson to maximise performance - surf in the morning and kite in the afternoon.

Decent volume and width through the front foot area allows you to move up-wind incredibly well and motor through flat sections of the waves both surfing and kiting. They have a medium rocker with a nicely pulled in tail to allow straight up and down turns through steep sections of the wave. Click here for more information.

This specifically designed performance board series is given some power and steer by NanoTune’s Board Tuning Technology to improve the performance and speed of their signature range.

NanoTune uses super-hydrophobic molecules to repel water and increase surface tension, lowering the board’s friction and reducing drag. By increasing speed and manoeuvrability, you can get the most out of every session and fine tune your skills.

"We are very excited to be involved with the calibre of athlete Ben Wilson represents in the sport of Kite Surfing. We pride ourselves in only partnering with top companies and athletes in their respective sports - BWS and Ben tick all the boxes. Having our NanoTune speed coating system applied at the factory level has proven a huge benefit to the user and we are very pleased to bring this technology to BWS and its full range of products." Dave Tarantini, NanoTune

"Speed is everything and each session seems better since I’ve been using NanoTune on my boards over the past 6 months. I’m definitely stoked to be partnering with NanoTune and using their products on all my boards and our BWS production boards." Ben Wilson

BWS factory Tuned boards are now available online and through selected retailers. NanoTune kits are also available at so you can upgrade and re-tune your current board. Just follow the simple steps and coat the bottom, rails and fins on your board every 2-3 months.
