Rrd has announced that another hot rider decided to join
the Rrd International Windsurfing Team: Kevin “The Meev”
Mevissen. Kevin is not just a supremely talented freestyler but
he’s also addicted to waveriding and definitely another hot RRD
rider to watch on the 2008 season.

Kevin Mevissen said: “I am really stocked to announce my new board sponsor RRD! This year you will see me flying around on my new RRD Twintip! I hope to see you guys on the water soon and rip hard!”

This year Kevin is really motivated and focused on his windsurfing skill and career: “For the incoming season I want to reach the top 3 Freestyle ranking in both Tours: PWA and EFPT. And most of all, I want that when people look at me riding an RRD board they
must say: “Hey! This guy rides with style!” Actually I’m training in South Africa and I feel really good, since we had a lot of wind and
waves this year: unbelievable! I can’t wait next week when my coach will comes with my new RRD TwinTip 90 and we’ll start doing a lot of freestyle!”

This year Kevin has not only a coach who helps him in the gym and cardio, filming him on the water and studying the videos with him in the evening, but he has a manager too… “My manager is an amazing girl called Nikki and she will make sure that everything comes on
the right moments. She’s really inside the Media things and this year we’ll be on MTV Holland and on a lot of magazines, on schools and fancy young mags! We’re organizing some camps for the 2008 season, so will be really good to get new people into the sport!”

The winning trick for the incoming season?
“When I’ll find some good ramps I’ll go for the pushloop forward and when it’s flat a lot of double tricks!”
