Goya seems to be snapping them up this year, check out their latest recruit…
The tallest rider on the PWA-world tour, Dutchman Martin ten Hoeve (H-999), proudly announces he’ll be using Goya boards for the 2012 season. Proper sponsorships from brands within the windsurf industry is hard to find these days, but with the help of his sponsors outside the windsurf industry (Aloha Beach Paviljoen, Van Someren Bodem en Water, Acernum Conculting and Quermo) Martin managed to turn a bad situation to his advantage: “I wasn’t really looking for the best deal, but for the best boards. I tried a lot of different boards in the last couple of months and really fell in love with the Goya’s! I love the fact that the produce a 104 liter wave board. With my weight it’s the perfect board for dodgy competition conditions. It’s massive, but it turns on a dime and jumps like nothing else. I already landed a double forward with it!”
After a short chat with Lalo Goya, Martin even managed to secure a decent deal with Goya Boards. Martin’s weapons of choice now include the Goya Pro Wave Series 104, 92 and 84; Aeron booms and a crisp set of his trusted Point-7 Sado’s and Salt’s.
