The Naish International Family Gets Bigger

Naish International officials are proud to announce some brand new additions to their elite kiteboarding team. Paul Serin, Hope Levin and Raquel Lima are the newest members of the Naish family. They are valuable assets for Naish and couldn’t be happier to have such a powerful brand by their side.

Paul is a reputable rider on the European scene, claiming important titles such as the 2010 European Junior Champion, the 2011 French Junior Champion, and the 2013 French Freestyle Champion distinctions over the past years. He is stoked to be a part of the Naish team: “Joining the Naish International team is like the beginning of an accomplishment, because the spirit of Naish Kiteboarding was always an inspiration to me. To be a part of this team is like a dream come true!”

Hope starting riding around 10 years ago and proved to be a talented and determined rider. She started the 2014 season in full throttle, by placing 1st in both the Ladies Freestyle and Slalom events and 3rd in the Course Racing event at the Lord of the Wind challenge. She is also happy to join Naish: “The Naish family is a very special group and I am honored to become a part of it. My peers are world titleholders, extreme athletes, and most importantly good people. I am so excited to learn from them and share adventures together in 2014 as we promote our brand and the sport of kiteboarding.”

Raquel hails from Sao Paulo, Brazil, but now calls Hawaii her home. She is into kiteboarding for more than a decade and is a regular on the international pro scene. She placed first at the 2013 Women’s Snowkite Race Series and her 2nd place finish at the 2013 KSP Big Air Contest recently. Joining Naish is an important step for her too: “By joining the Naish International Team, I plan to push the limits of women’s kiteboarding and share my love for the wind, waves, and snow with the world. We have an amazing crew this year and I am thankful to be a part of it!”
