Kurosh Kiani: he loves colored sails

Kurosh Kiani has signed a contract deal with Fanatic. The Danish windsurfer joined the brand's international team of riders. Kiani will be charging the race season on the renowned Falcon Slalom boards and will compete at the PWA Slalom World Tour and a few selected Danish and Nordic events.

"We have been watching Kurosh the last few seasons on the PWA Slalom Tour, noting with interest that his results have been steadily improving, but also his personality and marketing abilities being quite unique in the serious racer scene", says Craig Gertenbach, Fanatic Brand Manager.

"So whilst we expect him to make even more progress into the top 20 rankings on the PWA Tour in 2012, we also look forward to working together with Kurosh on various marketing initiatives, as we believe he can add another dimension to our racing image".

Kurosh Kiani will also be involved in Fanatic's research and development process. The Danish rider's favourite spots are Cape Town and Maui, while his favourite manoeuvres are the Backloop and Flying Inside Gybe.

"My goals are to be up there amongst the best of windsurfers in the world and battle it out for the top spots and generally live out my dreams", says Kurosh Kiani.

Surfing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will take place in the ocean, not in a wave pool. The waiting period runs from July 24 to August 9.
