Point7 has grown quickly in the last few years and I really like the approach the brand has towards its team riders and their style. Getting the chance to help to develop the girl side of things with this cool brand is also something that really excites me! Of course the amazing performance of the race sail has also been a major factor while making my choice!
‘Signing Lena is a new adventure for us. It worked out through the synergy between our brand and Oakley in Turkey. There are a variety of different projects where Lena will be involved with her sponsors, and for us it’s a big plus. We will be happy to meet Lena also at her windsurfing centre in Bodrum to organize some events with her and our friends. Lena is motivated, professional, and these are important factors to be part of the Black Team. Her life is dedicated to windsurfing 100%, just like ours. We put together a nice Pro Team with girls this year, as a new project. We started strong by pushing our slalom products. We created the Black Team philosophy to have new talents to train together and bring them to the podium. Alberto Menegatti and Pascal Toselli as an example where from being out of top 10, we got them on the PWA slalom podiums. In freestyle we have Nicolas who did a great job this year, especially in the indoor event in Warsaw. Our latest challenge was bringing back Ricardo Campello on the podium to show the potential of our wave gear, and we managed together to get his first victory in a wave PWA event, exactly at La Torche. So what could be our next step, apart from now getting Maciek and Jordy to reach the level of Alberto and Pascal? Working on this new project regarding the windsurfing girls. Not only for the results, but we believe and see that lot’s of girls windsurfing, or starting to windsurf. The gear is so much easier. So it was a need for us to start a new challenge, and develop more this section into our brand. Welcome Lena on to the Black Team of Point-7’.
