The Austrian top wave and freestyle windsurfer Tom Hartmann (AUT-44) has changed to Quatro and Goya recently and left Naish after 9 years of collaboration. But he will stay with Hawaiian based brands and ride on Goya and Quatro from now on.

Tom Hartmann about his change: “I’ve had the opportunity to test Quatro and Goya’s boards and sails in Maui and was super stoked right away. The sails are top quality and deliver a perfect combination of power and easy handling. The boards are shaped by Keith Teboul and represent state-of-the-art designs of modern windsurf boards, from quad fin wave to freeride boards. I have already used the gear several times now at our home spots and I’m totally blown away by the stuff. The feedback from other sailors has been absolutely positive as well. I can only recommend everyone to try the gear for themselves and get stoked.”

Lalo Goya: “Working together with grass root level windsurfers is a dream for us and the best way to get the feeling and love for the sport that we put into every single one of our products. Tom is a windsurfer like us, who want to see the sport grow and prosper through the generations that will follow us.”

Blue Planet Trading is now responsible for the distribution of the brands Quatro and Goya in Austria. Their products will be available in selected shops.
