AIRUSH PRESS RELEASE - 7th JANUARY 2014
Julien’s focus and versatility has brought his attention to Airush International where recently they approached him to take their Slalom, Course, Foil, and Lightwind development to the next level. Julien has been sitting at 2nd place just above Airush International rider, Oswald Smith in the Slalom discipline. This focus towards slalom is the newest and most fascinating discipline with an entire functioning tour.
“We have been looking for the ideal rider who is as passionate in development as much as we are. Especially in areas like Slalom, Course and Foil. We have spent ample time developing some of the latest lightwind gear which will be ready for the water in the mid 2014 season” comments Brand Manager and Board Designer, Clinton Filen.
Julien came to Airush HQ in Cape Town to further develop the Airush Race and Lightwind program. “I am extremely happy with my move to Airush. They are really focused on developing equipment with their riders. In such a short time joining the team, I have been testing and designing the upcoming light wind division with the rest of the team. Its a really great experience to be part of this!”
He is also an iconic rider in France, a crucial region to share the Airush brand with local riders making Julien’s move very exciting for the New Year.
“Julien is so well-rounded from Slalom, Course, Foil, Wave and Freestyle - its fantastic to watch him ride. His riding and personality are so well known in the International and French community that it’s a perfect fit for the Airush Team. Exactly what we have been looking for.” says Marketing and Team Manager, Marc Schmid.
We look forward to an insane kick off to 2014 with some new product ranges from Airush International with a lot of influence coming from Julien and the rest of the Airush International Team Riders.
