Today we received the official press release from RRD about their newest addition to the team: Antoine Albeau. Albeau already feels confident on the boards and is looking forward to the first events: “I’m really happy to join RRD for 3 years, I’m very confident in my new slalom boards and I’m very looking forward to the first PWA event. We’ll see how it will go… but I want to get all the first places!”

Roberto Ricci:
“The multiple world windsurfing champion Frenchmen is the highest profile athlete in windsurfing ever entered in our family.
His great windsurfing experience on water surfaces of all kind of the whole planet, will push our R&D team to develop boards and construction technologies that will be tested in the toughest conditions where only top performance is the #1 priority.
We know Antoine is a highly demanding sailor of equipment trim and a perfectionist on every detail of his preparation before the race, and we gladly take the challenge with him to prove the world that together we will be second to none.

Antoine will also help us in the development of new SUP boards designs where he has gained great experience and is capable of precious inputs and suggestions to develop new standards for this important new water sport. RRD and Antoine will join forces to represent the Italian company colours for the next 3 years and hopefully for many more years to come.

The challenge is on, and we love it. Benvenuto a bordo ANTOINE!”
