Press Release

Kevin Pritchard.

Francisco Goya: We are proud to announce our new collaboration with Kevin Pritchard. Every windsurfer in the planet is familiar with Kevin’s top riding and multiple Wave and Racing World Titles, what we are here to create together with Kevin is his new present. This is why we started our brand, because we believe that with time, people like riders, only become more valuable to our team and sport, and their core and desire to ride it’s only getting brighter. Kevin will be working closely with all of our team riders, also assisting on communication and inspiration of our brand and sport. Stay tuned, he might be coming around to your local spot soon! Thank you Kevin for taking on this road together!

Kevin Pritchard: I am really happy to join up with the Goya Windsurfing team. I have always envied the team and products and I am happy to be on board. Its kinda my dream opportunity. From testing, to training, to foil windsurfing, I think I can be a good addition to the team. I really enjoy sailing with Marcilio and I hope to be able to share some of my competitive knowledge with him to help him dominate on the world tour. Testing products and being prepared for competition has always been my strong points, so sharing it with him and the rest of the team will be a great opportunity.

Keith Teboul: “I have never really liked Kevin, he always takes my waves”, said Keith with a smile, “but it will be cool to have him on the team and produce some cool boards with him.”

A few words about yourself. Still dedicated to windsurfing after all these years. Whenever I see wind or waves, I need to be on it. I don’t know why it is just something that burns inside of me.
What makes your ride? Its something inside of me. I can’t describe it. I love it, I still cant get enough. That feeling of carving down a glassy wave there is not much else in the world like it.
What is your most memorable session? Probably the 2007 Cabo Verde PWA event. It was intense… Well maybe it was winning the 2017 Aloha Classic.. Both were amazing.
What inspires you? People who have a passion for what they do. It can be someone who ski’s or surf’s or even a nurse who has that passion to be the best. All is inspiring. I love it when people who are the best at there sport can perform at such high levels at any given moment, rise to the occasion.
Describe your gear and the conditions you use it in. My favorite gear is 5.0 sail and an 85l board, with just enough wind to get out comfortably and then side off down the line glassy Punta Preta waves. Hard to get but worth it when you do!
What does riding for Goya mean to you? Its the dream. The reason I wanted to get on the Goya team is because I saw how much effort and passion Fransisco put into his main team rider Brawzinho. It takes a lot of work, time, and money to support a world cup rider and I thought it was awesome to see a brand giving their riders everything they need to be the best in the world. Seeing the Goya brand continue to do this is what makes it special.
