Robby Swift speaks out about the latest sponsorship changes…
“Obviously, my personal feelings are that I am very happy to still be included on the team. I am very sad that Ricardo and I will not be team mates any more after 12 years of doing everything together, and of course not to have Philip on the team is also very sad since we have become good friends over the past couple of years and his windsurfing talent speaks for itself.
“It has been a tough few years for the windsurfing industry in general with the recession etc. and teams seem to be shrinking all the time. I personally feel that competitive windsurfing has never looked better or been presented better than it is now with the tour being as strong as it is and the live streaming getting more and more views every event.
“I hope that brands outside the windsurfing industry will start to see the amazing value in our spectacular sport and get involved with it in a bigger way so that all the talented windsurfers from around the globe can carry on living all of our dreams and pushing the sport to new heights.”
