Fanatic announced the signing of 2 more big young talents to their International Windsurfing Team 2011: Slalom racer Pierre Mortefon (FRA-14) from France and freestyle talent Deivis Paternina Teran (V-04) from Venezuela. It´s nice to see that Fanatic invests in young fresh teamriders.
Craig Gertenbach, Fanatic Brand Manager, commented the change:
“We are very proud to welcome Pierre into the International Team. He had an impressive 2010 season, with winning the prestigious Defi Wind event in France, as well as delivering excellent results on the PWA tour. We expect 2011 to be an even better one for Pierre, he has already shown that he has the talent, confidence and speed to take him to the top of the PWA rankings. El Yaque is the birthplace of Fanatic most successful team rider in history, Gollito Estredo, our 4 times PWA Freestyle World Champion. So it´s no surprise to see Deivis following in his friend and mentor´s footsteps onto the international Freestyle scene. We are really happy to welcome young Deivis onto the Fanatic International team, for 2011 he will be competing in selected PWA events, as well as continuing his work with Planet Allsports El Yaque, who supported him right from the start. Good luck to Deivis and Gollito for the 2011 season.”
