75 litre Happy (very Happy)
Summary and vivid impressions: All-round quiver killer, with wave and turn orientation. Inspires confidence with its stability also in the gybe, unique (for me) volume distribution as it planes very early and behaves on a wave like a toy. 5.0 DT Super hero and 75 litres, 65 kg. Would love one also for the Black-Sea onshore conditions where we get 14-20 knots with 2 metre waves on the rare better days.
‘Emotional’ long version follows:
I was for only 4 days on Tenerife and wanted to do the most out of them. The day – 25th March 2023- started with 16 to 20 kts conditons for a few hours and picked up to 22 – 26 kts.
I am a 65kg, intermediate sailor, owner of a 80ltr tabou Da Curve. and went on 5.0 Super Hero and 75 litre Happy.
First thing – aside from the pleasant paintjob it strikes as a strongly quality build board. You hit someone with this thing on or off the water and they are not walking away….but the board is. Jokes aside the board looks well thought of with some visible construction reinforcements. Bruchfest.
You know how on the water sometimes conditions are mediocre, like you are wondering if you can waterstart. In such conditions the board impresses with stability and planning, early planning – makes you feel like a wizard. I was the only one in Cabezo. Not on a 100 litre but on a 75 litre board…You pump, point it downwind as they say and you go.
Did I say it was stable? Not just in straight line – in the gybe it makes you just do a smooth arch. You flip the rig at the right moment and you get out planning.
Turns – well this board just gives you freedom and reinforces your lust for turning and wave windsurfing – not only because it allows you to plane and get to the wave pocket on time but also because I can turn it from both front and back legs to radically high-five the lip. I like it way more than the Quatro Super Mini. It is in another league as it behaves mm very very lively.
These qualities have been confirmed also in the stronger to overpowered conditions. I personally loved that the board’s width didn’t even for a second make it hard for me in the chop of changing tides and stronger winds. And just got better on the waves. Somehow it made me feel more secure and I could lie down in the wave turns radically without getting a nosedive or tipping over the rail – something I do with my Tabou when I get too excited.
Last but not least helped me a lot on my flat, low-wind forward loops as provided my back a broader more stable base to pop from.
I am honestly amazed. No more words – test for yourself.
The happy is the best board for me, you can do more roller on the wave, you feel like a surfer, the board follow the wave with or without wind….it’s really a magic board.
At the beginning it was for light wind conditions, surf sailing but the shape become fun when the wind grow up too !
Congratulations and Thank you Danny for this shape !
AWESOME JUST AWESOME.
Many thanks to Dany who was a pleasure to meet and has created these boards which will improve your windsurfing “AMAZING” buy one and be “HAPPY”
The best boards
Thanks for excellent testing experience
When I was there he talked me through the boards and explained everything. As the wind was quite light he suggested to try the happy 105 and the stoked 90. He helped getting the stuff to the beach and gave me multiple tips and hints how to adjust the mast and rig the sail ideally. I first wen on the water with the Happy 105. I needed only a couple of minutes to feel at ease with that comparably short shape. The board floats easy and does not feel like a board with 105 liters. Riding waves was the best as the board never stops. And it turns easily for a board that size.
As the wind picked up I switched the board and used the Stoked 90. I felt immediately at home on that board. The board accelerates and makes jumping easy. Wave riding is as good. For me with 82kg this is the board if I would only use one!
Dany helped during the whole time. He was on the beach watching the whole time and gave me tips to improve wave riding/ my style. So all in all a perfect testing experience. Thanks again Dany for your time those superior boards!
Stoked 85 und Madness 78
ich konnte gestern erst das Madness 78 und dann den Stoked 85 testen. Spot: Sankt-Peter-Ording, Wind: Nordnordwest 6 Windstärken, 4 Grad, Nordseechaos mit Wind von rechts, sideon, viel Strömung!
Trotz dieser anspruchsvollen Bedingungen hatte ich richtig viel Spaß! Bei den beiden Boards hieß es: Raufstellen, losgleiten, wohlfühlen! Alles fühlt sich total natürlich an. Der Madness 78l hat einen extrem guten Top Turn, hält den Speed im Bottom Turn auch auf der Nordsee!
Noch mehr hat mich dann der Stoked 85 überzeugt. Vielleicht lag es an den anspruchsvollen Bedingungen, aber dieses Board war einfach eine Rakete: zum Springen und auch für den ein oder anderen Freestylemove ganz gut! Während ich mit dem 78l Madness gerade so einen einfachen Flaka machen konnte, ging mit dem Stoked 85 direkt ein Flaka 720! Auch einen Taka konnte ich fast stehen, was bei Wind von rechts schon cool ist!
Ich überlege, ob der Stoked 80l ein perfektes Allround-Waveboard für mich wäre. (68 Kilogramm Körpergewicht – meist gefahrene Bedingungen: sideon, Wind von links, kleine Welle für 4.4 oder 4.0er Segel).
Ich bin übrigens zwischen dem 02.04. und dem 12.04. auf Teneriffa.
Danke auf jeden Fall für diese coolen Shapes!
Total madness 108
and also suitable for me as a heavy weight sailer.
Dany and I had same contact too talk about what the better board was for me.
Together we came out on the Madness 108.
What a great board to sail so easy planning and also fast too.
Turns so easy.
The finish and quality of the board is great.
I use the board with my Simmer icon wave sails 5.9 down too 4.2 down.
also the plan too take it for a spin with my 6.3 but that is samething i still must do.
So thanks Dany too make this great boards.
It works 🙂
Great job Dany thanks Bearded George 🙂

Feeling at Home
After a break of 15 years I found a home again. Not only in Medano, but also on Dany’s Stoked Board! It gives me everything I love as an old school windsurfer:
Fast planing, safe in the water on bootomturns and jibes, fast turning on cutbacks, light but stable when jumping and almost indestructible 😀
The best of the best
I’ve been in this sport
I’ve been in this sport for 15 years and it’s a board that gives me a lot of confidence, it’s fast and flexible, it’s an amazing board
My level was boosted by taking the step to a custom board the” Stoked 85L” He lives up to his qualities Thanks Dany
I’m totally psyched about the responsiveness of my Madness 75. It’s as close to regular surf as it gets! In the Baltic Sea, Stoked 80 allows me taking the energy from less steep waves and carry it to the next section looking for the lip.
Best Boards ever
I am using Bruch Boards for 3 years now and they still look like they came right out of the factory. Beside the quality the shapes are great an I cannot which is the best. I like my Madness 88, my Happy 115 and the Stoked 90.
You immediately feel comfortable on the Madness, nothing needs getting used to. The foot straps sit exactly where they should be and the volume is distributed very neutrally. You can stand in the straps even before you start gliding, which is particularly important to me when sailing out through the white water in the shore zone in full onshore and light wind conditions, such as at Wave spot Prasonisi / Rhodes. Narrow and wide jibes are easy to glide through and the board continues to turn smoothly, even if the nose briefly dips in steep waves. When jumping, the Board feels neutral and can be precisely controlled in the air.
On Paros at New Golden Beach and in Karpathos, I was very surprised at how well the board works there in off-shore / gusty winds, with the riparian zone completely in the slipstream. You first have to bump out with 3.6 sqm without any pressure in the sail until you are out of the slipstream, and then mess around outside with a full hack in the choppy water. In these choppy waves, the Madness runs amazingly calmly and drives through wide and narrow jibes at full speed. What impressed me even more is how well the board glides through large wind holes so that you can get back to the beach without swimming the last meters. No braking, no sagging, just awesome!
Dany Bruch has managed to convert his years of experience on the water into the shape of the Madness. Awesome!
Thanks Dany, unbelievable awesome board!
I love this shape!
Loving my HAPPY 75L
What most surprised me is the early planning abilities and full control during turns while always keeping the speed in bottom turns. Pure magic, thanks Dany!!
P.S. Ordered custom color dark grey/ black with red logo 😍😍
