Welcome to the Starboard Tiki Quiz.
Windsurfing was invented more than thirty years ago, and we want to pick your brain every month with questions related to the exciting history of our sport. This is a fun and educational game that everyone can take part in. Just click on the answers you believe are correct, and you may win a sticker or some other odd prices we have in line for the Quiz Champion(s) of the month. The Quiz ranking list is running, and at the end of the year, we will announce the Quiz King/Queen of 2002. He/she will be rewarded with a very special Tiki prize.

How to play the game?
You will see an update of last month's game - analyzing the questions, as well as announcing the winners. Further down you will find the current ranking list and the correct answers from the previous month. The new and active Quiz is located at the end.

We have very few rules, but please note that we only accept one entry per participant per month. A second or third entry will not be recorded. The participant(s) with five correct answers will be awarded one (1) point. A half point (0.5) will be awarded all participants with four correct answers. In case of a tie, (equal points) the participant with the latest score will be considered the winner.

Example; If you have scored a point at an earlier Quiz and someone equalize your score a month or more later, he/she will be ranked in front of you. Equal point or half point scored within the same month will be regarded a tie.

August 5th.


Our July Quiz was interesting with a lot of guys competing. This time most of you lost out on question number two and four. It was Dionisio Guadagnino from The Virgin Islands that won the King of the Garda Lake in 2000. A little bit surprising maybe.., And Wojtek Brzozowski was racing RRD boards before he joined Starboard. Another big hand to Fernando Andrade from Brazil. Fernando has won an amazing total of five Quiz, and is again increasing his lead. Many congratulations also to Nicholas Lichtwark from New Zealand for five correct answers. Mike Lichtwark, New Zealand and David Richards, Australia both captured a half point for four right answers. Here is the August Quiz for you. This one is difficult guys. All the best of luck to you all. Cheers,
