Eclipse kites proudly announces the addition of Australian wave pioneer Felix Pivec, to their team.
From an early start Felix has been expanding and defining the current limits of modern wave riding with kites. Felix has set the standard for hard-core progressive riding in the waves with a kite. Raw talent and training has helped Felix achieved unprecedented levels of publicity for kiteboarding with over 90 pages of editorial content just this past year. One can only reach this level of success with endless hours on the water and a commitment to pushing the sport so it gets the respect it deserves. Felix looks towards the future and working with a brand he can grow with.
Felix states, “I’m really stoked to join the eclipse team and I’m excited about all the new opportunities that lie ahead. Eclipse is a company that really listens to fellow riders, as they really understand what is needed to make the sport grow. Eclipse makes products for a purpose, when I tried the KIMA I knew eclipse nailed it 100% with this kite, that was the first SLE kite I could use in the waves! Eclipse does a great job-making top of the line performance products. I like the simple and progressive approach Eclipse brings to the sport. With products that really work, great customer service and an awesome personal approach to management Eclipse is truly a great brand and I’m very happy to be on the team.”
Eclipse founder Chris Cousins states “I could not be more happy to welcome Felix to the Eclipse family. We know Felix had his choice of sponsors and we are honored that he choice our brand. Eclipse is company founded by riders as such we only build products when we are certain it will enhance our customers riding experience. Felix brings a fresh perspective to our R&D team and is a huge asset in our quest to develop the ultimate performance kite gear.”
Eclipse co- founder Dimitri Maramenides states: “ I have known and worked with Felix for the past 5 years. Felix shares my passion for kiteboarding and is a amazing rider, he does things with a surfboard that I could never do and knows that market better then anyone” I’m very exited to have Felix on the team. Now I have a new challenge if I want to keep my status as the most photographed kiteboarder!!
