SeaSprite Sports, the UK importers for RRD, Ezzy, Streamlined, Atan and Flying Objects have just opened their doors to a new recruit, but the question, who is it…
None other than former Boards Editor, Dave White. Having done a great job, we are sad to lose him from the world of Boards Mag. However, it is great to see his skills won’t go to waste as he remains a firm figure in the industry. Dave’s extensive photographic skills, a new found passion for video editing and illustrious history in the sport, are sure to bring a new dynamic to the team. We wish him and SeaSprite all the best in the future, as we push our sport with more enthusiasm and motivation than ever before.
SeaSpriteSports Press Release
Its with great pleasure to announce that DAVE WHITE (Mighty White !) has Joined Seasprite Sports as Watersports Sales Manager.
This link says it all:
The journey of life never fails to amaze me with its never ending twists and turns. It only seems like yesterday I was flying out to RRD’s Italian headquarters with Seasprite’s Wouter Ardern – a trip that unknowingly would shape my future.
Having experienced the passion and commitment to watersports shared by the heads of these two companies, I’m delighted to have been invited to join in the Seasprite/RRD party.
I’ve always enjoyed the team spirit, and in many ways this feels like coming home. John Skye was a huge part of my past successes, while Jem Hall has been instrumental in the more recent ones. Now, with the combined experience of Seasprite’s Jai Matthews and Wouter in the mix it not only adds up to a potent team to be part of but a fantastic way to see in 2012.
Whitey is a great friend, but I have also had the chance to work with him in many different ways. In the beginning with Whiteboarders he was not only my sponsor but effectively my promoter. He’s the master of pushing a brand and getting it not just noticed, but elevated. Since then he’s worked at Boards as editor and turned the magazine into a top class read for everyone. In amongst all that he has designed websites, produced top class DVD’s, won world titles, and snapped some quality pics. That’s quite a few strings in his bow! And talking of strings, he kites pretty good too! I have no doubts in my mind that he will bring a huge amount to the RRD/Seasprite brand, both in the UK and globally. To be honest I can’t wait to work with him again!
I am extremely happy to have Dave White joining the Seasprite team and representing the whole RRD collection in the UK. His passion and excitement for any new design development in windsurfing, SUP and kiteboarding make him the perfect man to represent in full the true RRD spirit and philosophy.
It’s people like him that make our sport move forward and spread the right attitude towards the discovery of the ocean and our watersports, by either pushing the limits of performance or just sharing a moment of pleasure with friends and family.
We look forward to seeing Dave presenting the new RRD products in the UK for many years to come!
(P.S. I’m not superstitious by nature, but to be on the safe side I will not drive his van around the UK with him. Boards and sails have more ‘value’ than cars!)
I’m really looking forward to working with Dave as he’ll bring his world famous energy, passion and commitment to the Seasprite team. He has a wealth of experience, needs no introduction, and we all have a lot to learn from him.
First and foremost Dave loves to be in the water, and he very much likes to have quality products attached to his feet and hands. He’s already enjoyed using our RRDs and Ezzys for a few years, and now he’ll be getting the opportunity to play with even more of our toys. Bring on the mighty Whitey and let the good times roll!
Speaking on behalf of the Seasprite team I’m thrilled that Dave White has chosen to continue his career in the windsurfing industry with us. Dave needs no introduction at work or at play – with his vast experience, passion, energy and love of watersports, Seasprite can only benefit and become stronger in its quest to become the UK’s number one watersports provider. Welcome onboard Dave White, and let’s get started!
