NeilPryde and JP Australia approached me to join the team, for a few reasons, but mainly because I am a German rider mainly riding in Europe this year, they like how I ride and were impressed with my results last year.

Over in Chile last year I tried a few of Robby’s (Swift) boards, I felt quite comfortable on them straight away. I thought a lot about it, I was happy with Fanatic but I also wanted something new and fresh for the first year that I can really concentrate on the windsurfing tour. Before I was studying and couldn’t take much time off, but now I am almost finished so I can really focus on the tour and be a professional.
