The WH1 Sweetwater Edition Surfboard is an absolute secret weapon in standing waves and the perfect tool for all riversurfers. The board is hand shaped by Hubert von Watta and lovingly handcrafted in Germany. The entire shape is tailored to the needs of Riversurfers and offers an incredible feeling in standing waves like the Unit Wave Pool, the Citywave or the Eisbach in Munich and similar constructions. Since surfboards are subjects to heavy use in such waves, the WH1 Sweetwater Edition was equipped with reinforced rails. These rails protect the edges of the surfboard from wear and blows. Especially in standing waves, it is inevitable that the surfboards are heavily stressed by the sidewalls of the waves. Conventional surfboards with standardized rails for use in the open sea are easily processed, which reduces the durability in standing waves. In addition, the WH1 Sweetwater Edition has an incorporated tail carbon fiber section. These ensure a higher stability of the board. In standing waves you have to push more than average to position yourself perfectly. The carbon strings support the surfer while pushing and help to achieve a clean and energy-saving surf feeling.
The flat rocker paired with the compact outline make the Ombak an all-purpose weapon for standing waves. It is agile, tricky and very forgiving.

Hubert von Watta
The team around Shaper Hubert von Watta looks back on a 15-year tradition and has become an indispensable part of the German and international surf scene. All Crank boards are made in Germany, a mass production in China and Co. was deliberately rejected. Each Crank Surfboard is hand-sculpted and crafted with great attention to detail.
Anyone who takes a look at the professional surfing scene cannot avoid the name Sebastian Steudtner. The German surf pro is known for its incredible big wave surfing. The Mercedes-sponsored exceptional athlete regularly reaches its limits and feels really comfortable in the gigantic waves of Teahupoo, Peahi and Nazaré. The board on which Sebastian Steudtner surfed came from the forge of Crank surfboards and was also handcrafted by Hubert von Watta.
