Martin Ten Hoeve on Goya
The Dutch wave sailing master makes a change for the 2012 season.
Martin Ten Hoeve (Point-7) has announced that he has found the ultimate board for his style and he will be riding for Goya in 2012. As the tallest rider on the PWA it is essential for Ten Hoeve to find the finest equipment that fits with his size and riding style. Ten Hoeve has made sure that rather than hunting for the best deal he has been testing boards like crazy and all his decisions have been based on how well he can perform on the equipment.
Ten Hoeve proudly states: “I wasn't really looking for the best deal, but for the best boards. I tried a lot of different boards in the last couple of months and really fell in love with the Goya's! I love the fact that they produce a 104-liter wave board. With my weight it's the perfect board for competition conditions when the wind is lighter or the waves slightly smaller. It's massive, but it turns on a dime and jumps like nothing else. I already landed a double forward with it!"
After a short chat with Lalo Goya, Martin even managed to secure a decent deal with Goya Boards. Martin's weapons of choice now include the Goya Pro Wave Series 104, 92 and 84; Aeron booms and a crisp new set of his trusted Point-7 Sado's and Salt's.
