KA Sails Welcomes Farrah Hall USA-3 As Our Newest Team Rider

March 2 , 2009

Farrah Hall, the number one ranked Women's RS:X Windsurfer in the United States and a rising star in Formula racing has now officially joined KA as a Team Rider.

Jurg Schnorf says "Farrah was a natural choice because her total dedication, energy, and commitment to be the best mirrors KA Sails’ own philosophy for being the best in everything we do.”

"I'm excited to be a KA Team Rider and really appreciate the benefit of using a superior sail. My KA Formula sails are light, easy to rig, and each sail can be used in a wide range of conditions. I am very happy to now be representing this up-and-coming new company.”

Farrah will be competing at the Calema Midwinter’s in Merritt Island, Florida this March 6-8, using the newest KA Sails designs. The full range of KA Formula sails will be available during this event. Farrah’s quiver includes a 9.0, 9.8, and 10.7.

This summer Farrah will compete in a number of European Formula events on the Grand Prix tour and will be filing reports specifically for Windsurfing Miami on http://www.miamiwindsurfing.com/.

KA Sails makes a full line of windsurfing sails including Formula, Kona, Slalom, Wave, and Speed. KA Sails dominates the Foiling Moth Class taking the top 18 spots at the 2008 Moth World Championships. For further information on KA go to www.kasail.com/.

Farrah Hall is actively campaigning for the 2012 Olympics in the RSX Class in addition to joining the Formula circuit this year. More information can be found at www.farrahhall.com and www.miamiwindsurfing.com



I am super stocked to all Windsurfing Women I say you rock. Very Happy

Ben Responds by Talking About Himself in the Third Person

March 3, 2009

After reading a post on Iwindsurf.com Ben thought it would be fun to issue his own press release.

Ben says, "Talking about yourself in the third person is great. It's kind of like you are doing the talking but you can attribute your comments to someone else, who is not you, but is actually you. The problem is finding the opportunity to use the third person. Saying things in general conversation like: Ben likes ice cream or Ben likes windsurfing, when you are Ben, can be off-putting to many people. The workaround is to create a press release. This makes it okay to interview yourself and respond to your own clever questions."

It is not known if Jurg Schnorf sets up two chairs when he interviews himself. He may play the interviewer with props such as a note pad and a press badge. After each question is asked he may get up, take off his badge, set his notepad down, and sit down in the other chair.

Irrespective of the interview format, Jurg Schnorf is known to give careful and thoughtful responses to his own questions. This can be seen in the quality of Jurg's press releases.

When asked for a final thought, Ben said, "Farrah is a great sailor and women windsurfers do rock, I'm just not sure if they rock as much as Jurg!"

I am pretty sure the windsurfgirl speaks excellent English. You and I - not so much.

Congrats to her and welcome to the team.

Hi Jurg,
Are we to understand that this was an article in a magazine or some online media outlet? Where was the interview "cut and pasted" from?
Maybe you could post the link to the actual article in order to add some validity to your claims!

Hi BRIMAR,

www.Miamiwindsurfing.com made a Interview with Farah Hall and was the first to know about her joining the KA sail Team. I help where ever I can to increase the number of Windsurfer in the USA, Canada, Americas and support GPS, Slalom, Wave and Formula races etc., so I am very exited that she joined KA Sail. If people pick on some typos etc I don't see that so important I rather would like to see guys and girls spend effort on getting there buddy's on board then belittle others in the forum.


www.miamiwindsurfing.com and soon www.kasail.com for the news

Have fun and keep sailing

Thanks and congrats on your new found success!
