Team Fanatic

We are proud to announce that German Freestyle talent Andre Paskowski (G-2) and Swiss lady Laure Treboux (SUI-4) have joined the Fanatic International Windsurfing Team!

With Laure onboard, our girls team with Nayra Alonso and Yoli De Brendt is stronger than ever and the three ladies are already looking forward to train together.

Andre is one of the world's best Freestylers (EFPT Champ 2006 & 2007) and also good friends with our 2007 PWA Freestyle Vice Champ Gollito Estredo. At the moment the two are training together in El Yaque and for the future they are planning lots of projects together, wait and see!

Fanatic Brand Manager Craig Gertenbach: "I´m happy to welcome Laure and Andre, both fit really perfectly into our Fanatic team and show the youthful enthusiasm for windsurfing that our sport needs and lives from!”

Andre Paskowski: “I’m very stoked! I think that at Fanatic the atmosphere between riders and company is very good. Fanatic is known for their young team, good wave and freestyle boards. So all in all I thought – I will fit perfectly in the team!””

Laure Teboux: “Fanatic simply makes awesome boards, has a great image and a young dynamic team. I'm really proud to be part of it!”

Fanatic is proud to announce that the famous Club Nathalie Simon sports centres will be equipped with Fanatic windsurfing boards in 2008! This is indeed a perfect re-union, as the two brands were already successful partners more than 15 years ago!

Fanatic, one of the three leading board brands worldwide, has been growing yearly from strength to strength, with an extremely strong product line, especially in wave boards, which was the deciding factor for Club Nathalie Simon to make the change.

With a young and dynamic image and a complete, compact and perfectly developed product line, Fanatic offers the Sport Away clients every type of performance product, from the most radical to first step windsurfing experiences.

Windsurfing travellers will be able to test and enjoy the new boards starting this summer, as each centre is progressively equipped with Fanatic. The first centre is already equiped in Cabarete (Dominican Republic) and will soon be followed by Safaga and Ras Sudr, (Egypt), Lanzarote (Spain) and Bodrum (Turkey). Cabo Verde, and Margarita (Venezuela) will follow suit next season.

Fanatic Brand Manager Craig Gertenbach:„We are very excited about this new co-operation, France is a very important and growing market for us. The well known Club Nathalie Simon organisation has some of the best centres and locations worldwide, so we are really excited about a great future together!
