Conséquence logique de l’arrivée de l’australien Travis Grant chez NSP, au niveau européen, c’est Rico Leroy qui portera désormais les couleurs de NSP (et des pagaies Werner). Logique car Rico a longtemps ridé avec des planches DC, les races de Dale Chapman, shapeur des nouvelles NSP de race avec le français Alain Teurquetil. Ors Rico ayant toujours trouvé les shapes du tandem Chapman/Teurquetil très aboutis, il n’est donc pas étonnant de le voir signer avec cette marque d’autant qu’il bénéficierait d’un budget prometteur lui permettant de réaliser de belles courses en 2013.
Fresh off the back of signing World #1 Paddler Travis Grant, NSP continues its expansion and today announces the signing of Rico Leroy the Renowned French all round Waterman. Waterman is a term reserved for the elite, multi talented ocean athlete a definition Rico clearly fits. Boasting numerous and many awards in multi disciplines including the 2009/10 ISA World Tandem surfing title along with countless results in SUP Racing, SUP surfing, Outrigger Racing and tow in big wave surfing.
“I’m really happy to join the NSP Team; their will to make competitive SUP with Dale Chapman shapes and build a strong team led by Travis Grant convinced me straight away to be part of this adventure. I look forward to ride my 2013 NSP SUP and perform in European & International contests” In a joint initiative supported by Hoff; the French and Spanish distributor both NSP and the Hoff team are stoked with the addition of Rico to the team.
