TeamPryde Recruit Philip Köster
The 13-yr old wave sailor, of German descent, lives just 100m from the beach in Gran Canaria.
Köster has already made himself known on the professional tour placing first in the junior super jump session at the PWA event in Pozo last year.
“It's fantastic to have the opportunity to work with a young rider with so much talent. If Philip continues to develop his on the water sailing ability as quickly in the future as he has over the past year or so, it's quite possible that were going to see something well out of the ordinary" said Jon Squires from NeilPryde Windsurfing.
Philip will ride the Alpha, a sail ideally suited to the conditions where he lives in Vargas, and he will be joining the rest of the team in Maui next month for the 2009 collection photoshoot and will no doubt attract a lot of interest on the 2008 wavesailing tour.
