KP To The Big G

After weeks of independent testing, Kevin Pritchard finally chose Gaastra from the stack of sail brands hunting for a multiple world champ...

Not only that but Kevin, 31, now gets to work alongside his brother Matt once more, though this time round big bro Matt’s the team manager as well as a tuning buddy.

It’s the third time for Kev back on the ‘The Big G’, after starting out as a junior team rider in the 90s with one of windsurfing’s truly legendary superbrands.

Kevin seemed over the moon about the switch at his Blog. ‘I am super stoked on the sails, they are working really good, and everyone at Gaastra is very supportive and ready to take the brand to the top. I am happy to be working with Matt again and feel like there is some real positive energy pushing us forward. Dan Kaseler is keen on designing some new fast gear, along with a great group of team riders, it will be fun to see where it can take us.’

The Pritchard’s presence help form a formidable racing team alongside fellow hotshots Ross Williams (Tabou / Gaastra), who’s also a top-10 wave sailor, and new acquisition Arnon Dagan (Fanatic / Gaastra).

Of course the Gaastra freestyle team’s pretty awesome too with 5 of their young riders in the overall top-10 including current world champion Marcilio Browne (Mistral / Gaastra).

In other news we’ve seen up and coming women’s wave rider and freestyler Evi Tsape (Fanatic / NeilPryde) of Greece snapped-up by NeilPryde sails, and RRD swoop for Venezuelan freestyler Douglas ‘Cheo’ Diaz (RRD / North).
