Fanatic and NorthSails are proud to announce the signing of well known Argentinian windsurfer Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG-3) to their International Windsurfing teams. Gonzalo is one of the top PWA racers and will for sure enjoy our range of Falcon Slalom boards and Warp sails, both in results and R&D!
Gonzalo Costa Hoevel: "I am very happy to be joining the NorthSails /Fanatic teams for 2011 season! I have tried most of the gear during the 2010 season and always found it extremely easy and fast. I had my first sessions last weeks and everything goes super easy and fast! I can´t wait racing with it. I have a great relation with all boys and girls in the North Sails/Fanatic teams."
Craig Gertenbach, Fanatic:"I´m very happy to welcome Gonzalo to our Fanatic team. I have been watching Gonzalo´s sailing over the last few seasons, he has improved a lot in slalom and was a little unlucky in the last seasons, but some top individual results showed his great top ten potential. Well known in South America, Gonzalo will certainly be a great brand ambassador for Fanatic both on and off the water. There is also a good chance Fanatic might renter the Formula market using Gonzalo´s input as a World Class Formula Racer".
Raoul Joa, North Sails: "Over the last years Gonzalo has proven to be a no. 1 contestant in Formula Windsurfing as well as one of the few "younger" PWA Slalom sailors with top ten potential. Therefore we think that Gonzalo is a great addition to our Slalom-Formula team".
