Boot Düsseldorf is popular for its coverage of a wide variety of water sports, including: sailing, motor boating, diving, angling, marine tourism, trend sports, and canoeing. For surfers, there was the world’s first standing, deep-water wave (aptly called “The Wave”) that allowed participants to test their surfing skills on standard boards and SUPs. Up to six surfers could ride at once, and beginners (as young as six years of age) could use a bar for support. It’s nine-pump system creates a realistic ocean current, allowing users to ride on standard boards with fins. There was also a center for diving, where you could hop in the 5.9′ deep pool and diving instructors from the world’s top diving organizations would provide training tips and advice.
Among the various displays, SeaDek was on the decks of countless 2017 model vessels, including many of the world’s leading boat builders. And to support the aftermarket, Activboot touted their custom SeaDek capabilities, including full service design and installation. To learn more about Aktivboot, visit www.seadek.de.
