Jobe / Jstar signs Dutch talented wakeboard youngster Sam de Haan!
15 Oktober 2010
Jobe/Jstar can proudly announce they have added Sam de Haan to their wakeboard team. This 14 year old talented youngster, who holds a Dutch passport, lives in Germany and has been making a name for himself in the last few years. Last year he had a great season finishing 2nd at the Dutch National Championships and 4th at the European Championships. These performances haven’t gone unnoticed by the popular water sports brand Jobe after which Sam was contacted.
Henk van de Werf, Marketing Manager at Jobe Sports International, is delighted with the addition of Sam to the team: “We had our eyes on him for quite some time and his achievements last season have only increased our interest. Several months ago, we had already sent Sam several test boards which he was very enthusiastic about. We are very happy to have added this wonderchild to our team. We are convinced that together with us he has a bright future ahead of him.”
Sam himself was delighted with his sponsor deal too: “I think it’s extremely cool to ride for Jobe. I had received another offer but I decided to join Jobe. Jobe is one of the most popular brands in Europe and the Vanity board simply rides great. Besides that I enter a team alongside riders like Maxine Sapulette, Sjors van de Kerkhof and Christian Koester. Isn’t that awsome!”
Jobe/Jstar will provide Sam with a complete wakeboard package with which he can compete in competitions next season.
