Martin Vari joins Slingshot!
We are proud to announce the addition of Martin Vari to the Slingshot
International Team. His professionalism as an athlete and a spokesperson
for kiteboarding is a huge asset to our team and our company. Slingshot
feels Martin's innovative and aggressive riding style will be the ideal
complement to our team.
Martin will be taking his energy and time away from the world tour. He
will continue to push the limits of freestyle twin tip riding while
exploring the potential of kiteboarding in the surf.
Martin Vari: "My entire career I have been driven to push the sport to
new limits, to promote it, and make it bigger. I couldn't have done it
and I couldn't do it today without my friends and other riders. Hooking
up with Slingshot allows me to have the freedom to take it to the next
Slingshot President, Jeff Logosz: "Upon meeting Martin and getting to
know him you immediately understand his passion for the sport and life.
His accomplishment of two world championships was a great starting
point. This same drive and dedication are more present now than ever
before. We fully support his new direction to the point where Martin
Vari, is the first professional kiteboarder with a "No Compete" clause
in his contract. This means no competitions at all! I'm confident that
Martin will be come an icon leading the way in our sport for many years
On the R&D side of things, Martin is already internally plugged into the
inner R&D circle at Slingshot. His input and contributions to product
development will be a huge asset in continuing to provide quality gear
that leads the market in simplicity and performance.
Last but not least look for Martin to join forces with Jeff Tobias, Ben
Wilson, and Bertrand Fleury for a month long Slingshot European tour
