The 2014 Avanti team line-up has changed a bit: “A decision was made to focus our attention towards building a young team moving forward with a keen eye on the future so we have decided to amicably finish, by mutual consent, our cooperation with Peter Volwater. We thank Peter for his hard work and dedication over the past two years and we wish him the best in the future with his new endeavours. Our international team is proud to add freestylers Julien Mas from France and Youp Schmit from Bonaire. Welcome fellas!” (Avanti Sails Team)
Peter Volwater will sail with KA-Sails and Starboard in 2014.
A quote from Julien (F-7): “The Echo ME is the best freestyle sail I have ever used. Light, stable in the air and has big ‘pop’ potential. I am excited to join Avanti for the 2014 season and I expect to elevate my game on the PWA tour.”
“Young and exciting 18-year old prospect Youp (NED-27) brings pure talent, gifted abilities and energy to the brand. His move from Neil Pryde to Avanti was initiated to chase his boyhood dream – The PWA freestyle world title, and we believe in his ability to perform at the highest levels on the best rigs in the world.” (Avanti Sails Team)
