Gonzalo Costa Hoevel: happy dude

Fanatic has announce the signing of the Argentinian windsurfer Gonzalo Costa Hoevel (ARG-3). The PWA racer will join Fanatic's international windsurfing team and will test the range of Falcon Slalom boards.

"I am very happy to be joining the NorthSails/Fanatic teams for 2011 season. I have tried most of the gear during the 2010 season and always found it extremely easy and fast. I had my first sessions last weeks and everything goes super easy and fast. I can't wait racing with it. I have a great relation with all boys and girls in the Fanatic team", Costa Hoevel said.

"I'm very happy to welcome Gonzalo to our Fanatic team. I have been watching Gonzalo's sailing over the last few seasons, he has improved a lot in slalom and was a little unlucky in the last seasons, but some top individual results showed his great top ten potential. Well known in South America, Gonzalo will certainly be a great brand ambassador for Fanatic both on and off the water. There is also a good chance Fanatic might reenter the Formula market using Gonzalo's input as a World Class Formula Racer", says Craig Gertenbach, Fanatic's Brand Manager.
