Leon Jamaer big jumps and big crashes. Leon recently left Hot Sails and Fanatic to sign with JP and Neilpryde, and he shared a few words about it on facebook:
I have been with Hot Sails Maui for the last 7 years and with Fanatic for the last 5 years. I want to thank them, especially Jeff, Craig, Karin and Torben, but also everyone else who helped me along the way, it has been great! I just signed contracts with JP and Neilpryde and am stoked they put trust in me and also give me the opportunity to turn fully pro and focus on what I want to do anyway – being in the water.
After six weeks on the road I am now happy to come home. Just boarded Santiago – Miami – New York – London – Frankfurt – Hamburg… maybe few more detours as it looks like the big storm in Europe is shutting down airports.
Here is a short clip, probably the last one with Hot and Fanatic, from the other day in Churio using the KS3 4,3 and Quad 82.
see you on the water!
Fanatic International announced yesterday that German wavesailor Leon Jamaer is being promoted to their International Windsurf Team. Leon is a very talented youngster from Germany and been part of the Fanatic National team for a few seasons. He finishes his schooling in 2013, and will be 100% dedicated to windsurfing, and Fanatic is looking forward to his great potential in both German National and PWA events. Leo in a radical “no fear” sailor, and just competed in Mission 1 of the Red Bull Storm Chase.
“It´s great to have Leon in our Fanatic International team now. If you ever had the chance to watch him free sailing in pretty much any conditions, your first reaction would be: “that guy is nuts”. When he sails he just goes for it 200% and the energy on his moves is unbelievable. Together with Alessio Stillrich, Arthur Arutkin and Noah Voecker-Roche, we will are building our next wave generation to follow in the footsteps of Victor Fernandez and Klaas Voget. – Craig Gertenbach, Fanatic Brand Manager
“I´m really happy to be part of the International Team now! I hope I can spend in future even more time with my team mates on the water, especially Victor, Klaas, Alessio and Arthur, travel around the world, compete and improve my sailing. I hope I can finish my studies this summer and then start improving my skills throughout the contest season and fully attack the PWA tour.” – Leon Jamaer (G-208)
Windsurfing Fin manufacture Black Project fins announced a few days ago the addition of Leon Jamaer to their ever growing team. Here’s what they had to say on blackprojectfins.com.
We are extremely pleased to be able to report that up and coming German ripper LEON JAMAER has chosen to ride for Black Project Fins in 2013. Leon who broke into the PWA top ten for the first time last year in Denmark and finished 16th overall for the season is looking to find his home securely within the top 10. Leon has just returned home from Cape Verde, despite the limited action he was able to get these great photos and produce this thought provoking video. Known for his video prowess, Leon is a new bread of windsurfing professional who is active both on the water and in the media. He makes the perfect addition to the team as we look to develop the German market this year.
German pro wavesailer Leon Jamaer scored on his last day in Sal Cape Verde. Leon had been there for two weeks without scoring a decent session. The day he had to leave a big swell was forecasted so he headed to the beach before sunrise. With the the swell not that clean and a large shorebreak it he was forced to wait for the wind to fill in. We’re glad he did check out this awesome clip.
“I didn’t think I had good chances to make it through the shorebreak but somehow made it to the outside.” – Leon Jamaer
