Due assi nel RRD team!


Stamattina mentro rileggevo, a caccia di errori (!?) l’intervista a Gigi Le Carrò che troverete sul numero di luglio di Wind News, mi sono imbattuto in una succosa indiscrezione rilasciata dal nostro intervistato: “… pensa che una new entry del team prima di firmare il contratto ha voluto provare le tavole: il risultato che le ha provate per la prima volta a Pozo… ed ha firmato subito il contratto. Potrei girarti la email di entusiasmo con il quale motivava la scelta RRD… il tipo è un certo Jhonn… si si Skye, il talento inglese!”
E quante ne sa il buon Gigi?! Saranno passate si e no un paio d’ore e dal puntualissimo servizio di RRD News è arrivata la conferma dell’arrivo nel team del giovane Inglese… ma non è tutto! Ricci raddoppia gli assi con l’arrivo nel Rrd International Windsurfing Team di uno degli uomini più veloci al mondo: Finian Maynard!


Rrd is proud to announce another hot rider has decided to join the Rrd International Windsurfing Team: John Skye. Skyeboy is not just a cool guy, he is a world class wave sailor, known for his radical moves, constantly achieving great results and masses of exposure in the windsurfing media. Skyboy is definitely another hot RRD rider to watch for the future.
New RRD Team Rider John Skye: “I have heard so many good things about RRD boards and when I tried their new WaveTwin74, it blew me away how nice it was. That was pretty much what sealed the deal for me. All the boards look really cool and RRD is really pushing forwards, so it’s great to be part of the team.”.
Rrd Brand manager Roberto Ricci: “I’m very happy to welcome Skyeboy aboard on Rrd Team. John rips, works hard and is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, with a huge amount of worldwide respect. Now he is equipped with the best toys he can rip and enjoy his sailing yet further just like Alex is doing by all accounts. The RRD Family keep growing and it’s a pleasure to manage a such team of so cool and so high skilled guys!”

Rrd is proud to announce that the Rrd International Windsurfing Team keep growing with the signing of former World Speed Record holder Finian Maynard. Finian is no doubt one of the fastest riders of the world and a slalom and speed addicted. His season goals are to stay on the top of PWA Slalom Ranking and to score the new speed world record. Definitely another hot RRD rider to watch right on this 2008 season!
New Rrd Team Rider Finian Maynard: “I have know Roberto for many years. I was sponsored by RRD in 1996 on my second full year on the PWA tour and I had some very good results on his boards like my first podium finish of 3rd in the World Cup of Paros, Greece. The time seemed right to join the RRD team again as they were looking for a top slalom rider. The RRD boards fit my style. I have been rigourously testing them in Gran Canaria in different wind strengths before I made my decision to join and I am confident that they can help me to my goals this year once I learn them a little more and get comfortable. I also want to work closely again with Roberto and his team as they are based in Tuscany and I spend a lot of time these days in Europe so logistically it made sense for testing and developing for the future. Of course my season objective is to win.”
Rrd Brand manager Roberto Ricci: “I’m very happy to welcome again Finian in the Rrd family.
He is the fastest windsurfer I have ever met and I am sure that he will find the right support he need with us. I have raced for many years with Finian in the tour and know very well what he needs to win .!”
