Yep, and its nothing to do with BD, its because of the NP/JP conection and there will be changes on last sessions JP team. But, its not to late for this to be reversed.

Cheers

Antoine Albeau gecontracteerd bij JP
There have been lots of rumors around for a while. Now it is official. Antoine, the 3 times PWA Slalom World Champion has signed a 3-year contract with JP starting 1.February 2009.

Antoine had the following to say: “This was a rather big decision for me. I am glad that I went for it and I am very happy that I will be part of JP next year. I really look forward to work with Werner Gnigler and the whole JP team. I will be very involved in the development of the performance oriented boards within the JP line and I can’t wait to get started.”More soon as well as a detailed interview with Antoine with some back ground information why he decided to make this major step in his career.


So A˛ is still on *Board (-:

Until february...

What we call MONEY and your future at stake.
Antoine is not getting younger, neither do BD. They need partners for a future job. I don't think they can retire in their salaries right now.

It's notable how so many of the top pro windsurfers in the world today always seem to be angling and trading sponsers these days. But for many of us out here, it's a bit of smoke and mirrors, because the realities of everything going on usually remain mysterious and clouded. Of course, many folks do the same thing with their careers over time.

Kind of in contrast, it's interesting to consider Robby Naish's professional career after his early Windsurfer brand days. Until he elected to form his own company, he was totally dedicated to Mistral and Gaastra. Still though, those days were very different times.

Nevertheless, over my career, I was one those folks that hung tough and basically remained dedicated and loyal to a single firm. However, in all honesty, that says a lot about my personality and character. It may have been a mistake overall and I could have realized more, but it was what I did.

The one thing that I've noted about Starboard, and very likely, something to do with the character of Svein Rassmussen and how he runs his company, their are many interesting and very talented folks that stick with the brand over the years. To me, I value that.

AA a mercenary French Legion ?

or others are just eyeing the biggest fat pay cheque ?

If i'm a fan of AA, i have to start selling off my SB gear now, going for JP now...

but an average joe like moi can't afford to change underwears readily, pockets hurt...

get the hint ???
