When I woke up this morning, I had to pinch my arm to make sure I wasn’t dreaming! 10 days ago I left Norway heading for Sylt and Italy to meet with people from the windsurfing industry. I think this week has been one of the best weeks in my entire life. I have met tons of people who have convinced me that the coolest, nicest and sweetest people on the face of the earth, are windsurfers! 🙂 Look at this collage and you see what I mean :
One guy I did not plan to meet, was Fransceso from AL360, an Italian producer of high quality booms. Accidentally his stand was next to the Challenger stand, and before I knew it I’d got myself a boom-sponsor! This is such a relief, as my old booms are a total disaster!!
I am now officially sponsored by Italian 99 International! I thought they were a small manufacturer of windsurf boards, but to my surprise the have a large range of windsurf, surf and SUP boards! These guys are totally challenging the established industry with a large range of beautifully crafted boards with cool design! I will do my best to help them achieve their goal of world domination! 😀
Last but not least – any girls dream : My own clothing collection!! I will together with Denis Conti, design and promote the Miriam Rasmussen beachwear collection made by Italian Bigcartel for Challengersails. This is so exciting, even if i am venturing into the unknown! But who knows – this might prove to be a success – I am sure that stranger things have happened!
