More Movers and Shakers

There's been more activity to report with big name signings

Fanatic are proud to announce that Swedish Freestyler Andreas Olandersson (S-66 Fanatic / NeilPryde) has joined their International Freestyle Team!

Andreas, the 2006 Swedish Champion, is one of the European scene’s top talents.

Fanatic Brand Manager Craig Gertenbach said "We’ve been following Andreas´ progress for the past three years, and also watched him train in South Africa off season. He’s not only one of the best Freestylers around at the moment, but more importantly his energy and enthusiasm makes him the perfect addition to the Fanatic International Windsurfing Team! We wish Andreas all the best for the 2007 season."

Andreas added, "I’m very happy! It feels good to be appreciated in a team for spending more or less your whole life in a sport going 100%. It’s a nice team, and good boss…I can’t go wrong! I’ve been trying my main Freestyle board, the Skate 99 a lot actually, and I really like it as it fits my style perfectly…that’s the most important thing for the competition season… to feel totally confident with the equipment  - especially your boards."

Starboard have also snapped up another top freestyle talent Andy ‘Bubble’ Chambers (K-540 Starboard). Bubble is one of the PWA’s most up and coming talents and is sure to be amongst the top names in 2007.

Further to yesterday’s news, Naish sails have also confirmed their signings of John Skye (K-57 F2 / Naish) and Julian Taboulet (F-100 Naish).
