Hot Sails Maui announced that 18 year old Maui based sailor Morgan Noireaux has joined their wave team.
Morgan Noireaux: “At the end of my contract with North I decided I wanted to go with a company based on Maui, and the opportunity to go with Hot Sails Maui presented itself, which was perfect. Having most of the Hot Sails Maui crew based on the island is great, it is a tight knit group and I have a lot of support. It also makes it really easy for me, if I need something, or I have a question I can just go stop by the loft. I also got to try out the QU4D, which made the decision even easier!”
Jeff Henderson (HSM owner): “We are a wave sail company primarily and always have been. Morgan is a great addition and with Kauli as team leader, we now have a perfect set up for refining our new sails. With our whole team we can truly live by our brand motto of Maui born, Global Design.”
Morgan, who belongs probably to the best sailors in Ho’okipa will be working closely with Kauli, Tom & Jeff to continue the development of their wave sails. Morgan who finished the AWT 2012 in 4th spot is preparing for the new season and wants to be on the top of the AWT podium in 2013: “Last year I made three podiums, but did not do well in the Maui contest and missed the overall podium by one spot. That definitely lit a fire in me. My goal this year is to win the overall title, so I’ve been training hard on and off the water to make that happen.”
