PRITCHARD GETS 7-YEAR ITCH
After seven successful years with Bic Sport, Kevin Pritchard has chosen to
join the ever expanding Starboard development program.
"Kevin is a great inspiration for us at Starboard, and we look forward
working with him on our shapes. With our research crew, Tiesda You, Jim
Drake, Jean Louis Colmas, Scott Mc Kercher, Colin Siferlen and Ben
Severene, we are ready to take windsurfing to a new level. We see a comeback
slalom in the future and Kevin also fits well into this development. Kevin's
and wave sailing dedication, is second to none, and we feel together we
can bring new blood into the sport.
Starboards future goal is simply to ensure that we can deliver tomorrows
boards yesterday and to set in action any activities we possibly can to
evolve the attention and interest level for windsurfing. We wish to
increase the number of windsurfers by 5 times the current level by 2007 and
setting in place large scale programs to achieve this goal." Says
Starboards Svein Rasmussen.
"I have been watching Starboard grow as a company throughout the years.
The positive energy that Starboard brings to windsurfing is great. I am happy
to work with a company that is as passionate about windsurfing as I am.
Starboard's innovative product line has some exciting areas that could
revolutionize the sport. I hope to bring many new World Title's to the
Starboard family!" said Kevin Pritchard
