WAKEBOARDING WITH A VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER SPORTLINE Wednesday 16 July 2008 PDF Print Professional wakeboarder, instructor, TV presenter and commentator, Matt Crowhurst, aged 27, is using a Volkswagen Transporter Sportline van to get him and his boards, boat and jetski to a busy schedule of competitions and festivals this summer. The VW Transporter has already taken Matt to both Wakestock venues (Blenheim Palace and Abersoch), and next month the van will be towing his jetski to the Rip Curl Boardmasters festival in Newquay. ‘Volkswagen vans have always had a cult following. This van really looks the business and is perfect for all my gear – and for sleeping in, if necessary!’ said Matt. ‘I can fit all my kit in the van, including boards, wetsuits, clothing, winch and a whole lot more, while still towing my jetski or boat and I have a couple of friends plus their gear onboard for the ride,’ he continued. The stylish Transporter Sportline is available as a van with standard and long wheelbases, and now as a fiver-seater kombi as well. The Sportline range is distinguished by lowered suspension, special 18 inch alloy wheels, chrome side rails, a rear roof spoiler, plus a lower front spoiler and chrome upper and lower front grilles. The vehicle interior has the luxury of bespoke leather upholstery, electric windows and door mirrors, as well as a radio/CD and air conditioning for cool sounds and air. There’s also plenty of performance with a 2.5-litre TDI PD engine with 174 PS that can sprint from zero to 62 mph in 12.2 seconds. The Transporter is Volkswagen’s best-selling van. Since it was introduced in 1950, over 10 million Transporters have been produced making it one of the most popular vans in the world.
