Albeau Moves To JP

Windsurfing’s fastest man signs a new sponsorship deal with JP-Australia.

Following mounting suspicion, Antoine Albeau has now confirmed that he’ll be sailing JP boards for the 2009 season. Both Albeau’s current sponsor, Starboard, and JP seemed keen to have the multiple world champion on their teams, however Albeau chose to pursue a new direction at JP.

“This was a rather big decision for me. I am glad that I went for it and I am very happy that I will be part of JP next year. I really look forward to work with Werner Gnigler and the whole JP team. I will be very involved in the development of the performance oriented boards within the JP line and I can’t wait to get started.”

Albeau will officially join the JP team on the 1st of February 2009, where he’ll be under a three year contract with the brand.

There’s on going speculation that JP may have to cut their team down to make way for the new signing of Albeau, though as yet no official statement has been made by JP. Watch this space.
