ENSIS at AWSI 2023

From the 6th to the 11th of September, the long-running The Association of Wind + Watersports Industries (AWSI) industry expo took place in the notoriously windy Hood River, Oregon, USA. This industry event invited water sports brands to showcase their new products and future developments, providing the water sports community with an opportunity to get to know these brands, try out their gear, and celebrate with fellow wind and water sports enthusiasts. ENSIS made the journey from Europe to participate in the expo, to showcase their new toys and future developments.

Team ENSIS at the AWSI

The ENSIS TEAM travelled all the way from Switzerland to attend the event and showcase their latest boards, the ROCK’N’ROLL PRO and HIP HOP PRO, along with their wings, ENSIS SCORE and TOP SPIN. They also brought along some unreleased wings, but unfortunately, we can’t spill any details about those just yet. During the week, attendees had the chance to test out the new PRO boards, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The general consensus is that these boards are not only lightweight but also highly responsive.
