Oliver Schliemann

17-year-old windsurfing prodigy, Oliver Tom Schliemann has signed his first professional contract with industry heavy weight, Starboard.

The German slalom specialist has had the support of Starboard thus far, but the brand have decided it’s time to develop their relationship with the young racer, with the signing of a professional contract.

Schliemann joins the huge Starboard dream team, which includes the likes of World Champions Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Kevin Pritchard.

For 2009 he’ll again be focusing on climbing the ranks of the PWA slalom discipline, in addition to competing on the Olympic class RS:X Youth World Championship.
