Female PWA rider Arrianne Aukes finished in 5th overall this year and is currently training hard in Brazil for the following season. Already sponsored by Simmer, this is no major change for her in terms of equipment, but it is a big step up the ladder for the young professional windsurfer. Here’s what she and the Simmer chief designer had to say.
Arrianne – “As sailing with Simmer Style sails as long as I can remember, it’s one of my dreams coming true, being part of the International Team of Simmer Style this year! And of course I’m super stoked as well to be in the team and I will try to make some good progress!”
Simmer Chief Designer Tomas Persson – “Some kids are brought up on bread and butter, Arrianne was brought up windsurfing. She is pure Simmer material, super motivated and enthusiastic. She finished 5th overall her first year on the PWA freestyle tour. With her growing bag of tricks and gained experience of competition we’ll see great things from Arrianne in the near future. We are stoked to have her on the team and look forward to following her progress.”
