Vincent Langer: "The boards are performing very well and that´s most important when you do competitions. There´s also a pretty good mood within the team members, they are a real family. Another reason was product manager Daniel Aeberli as he´s a very good friend of mine and for sure has a lot of experience in what he´s doing."

Daniel Aeberli, Fanatic Product Manager: “Vincent is for sure one of the most talented riders in the Windsurfing scene. We know each other since quite some years already so I could follow his career. He is a great personality and very professional. I am really looking forward to test the new prototypes with him in Cape Town during the next weeks. We will definitely profit a lot from his knowledge in terms of product development."

Matteo is a good friend since a few years already. Pierre I don´t know so well, but for sure it will be cool to train with the number 3 in the PWA Slalom Ranking 2014.

Mainly German events, for the moment 8 are planned. But I will also do some PWA events.
