La notizia era nell’aria, fin dal recente video di Nicholas Akgazciyan, in cui l’atleta dava in pratica l’addio a Point 7…
Il freestyle francese che nella scorsa stagione ha colto un prestigioso quarto posto finale nella classifica PWA Freestyle, non abbandona però la “motorizzazione” italiana visto che gareggierà per la stagione 2016 con le nostrane Challenger Sails! Di seguito l’intervista di rito.
Nicholas Akgazciyan (F-400):“I officially announce my new cooperation with Challenger Sails for the upcoming new season. I’m very happy concerning this new adventure and future projects with the team. I chose to change because I think it was the time for me to see new horizons and discover something else in my career. My aim is to keep my motivation growing and to share my knowledge with CHS. I know Claudio Badiali (owner and sail maker of Challenger Sails) since a few years back and I was pleased working with him in the past whilst in cooperation with my sails sponsor when he was designing sails for them. I visited the Challenger loft in Senigallia last week to design a new freestyle model and to start giving my first feedback on wave sails that were just tested in my last trip to Tenerife. It was interesting to observe his working methods and technical vision by joining together our ideas and points of view. This year I will fully focus on the PWA Freestyle Tour aiming for the PWA Podium and if my calendar allows I will also participate to some wave events. I will participate also in the Paris Indoor this April together with all the windsurfing legends, it’s gonna be awesome! Challenges are on!”
Claudio Badiali: “Myself and the entire company are proud and exited to announce that Nico Akgazciyan will compete on Challenger Sails for the next season. I know Nico well and his good freestyle and wave attitude. He is very professional and I’m sure his advice will support a lot the next generation of CHS sail designs. We have already started working on the new freestyle model.
Personally I can’t wait to see Nico in the first PWA event with the new Challenger Sails and of course in the legendary Indoor de France.
For 2016 we have a fresh and new CHS team and they all bring lot of positive energy!
Welcome to the Challenger Sails family Nico!”
