MauiSails Swoop For Angulo

MauiSails announce the signing of Former World Wave Champion, Josh Angulo, as their “franchise” sailor for the PWA World Tour...


Hawaiian born Josh, 34, who now lives in and represents Cabo Verde, is well suited to represent MauiSails.

He’s competed on the PWA World tour now for more than a decade, and has won numerous events, including the historic first ever Cabo Verde PWA World Cup, as well as a wavesailing World Title.

And Angulo’s no slouch on the Slalom course either, something which the MauiSails team have valued in their newest asset.

Pumped-up as ever Josh commented, “I’m over the moon to be joining the MauiSails team. Combining my personal efforts and experience with long-time pro, Phil McGain and title winning sailmaker, Barry Spanier, will be the most exciting project of my career.

It’s an honor and a blessing for me to have this strong support system during the prime of my professional life.

I look forward to working closely with the guys on development of MauiSails products, and to be able to offer some of my special appreciation of sail performance.

In addition, I’m going to be outfitting Angulo Cabo Verde windsurf centers with MauiSails and rig components.

I’d like to send out a personal thanks to the entire MauiSails group for inviting me to be a part of it.... Alooohhaaa!"

Team Captain, Phil McGain expressed, "We’re excited to be working with Josh. He’s an explosive and innovative wave sailor and will add a new dimension to MauiSails’ development and performance image.

We’re confident he’ll be extremely fast on MauiSails TR-4 Racing Sails and are glad to support his passion and competitive drive with equipment that will help him win.

Josh’ll be working closely with our Design Team, in addition to promoting MauiSails world wide through competitions and various other activities in association with importers.”

You can see Josh and his new gear in action next month at the opening PWA event of the season that kicks off the wave tour on Josh’s home-patch on Sal, Cabo Verde.
