Hot Sails Maui is extremely happy to announce that Irish ripper and media magnet Katie McAnena has joined the International Wave Team with immediate effect. Katie spent many months in the United States in 2012 and during this time her sailing and personality stood out from the crowd.

Her appearances on the AWT, BWA, IWA and PWA tours make her the ideal recruit and we welcome her to the Hot Sails Maui Ohana. Currently training in South Africa before heading off to represent Ireland on her SUP Katie will be returning to Maui in a few weeks. Katie has a packed calendar for 2013 as she continues her journey to promote windsurfing around the world.

'I am so incredibly proud to now be a part of the Hot Sails Maui Team! As a company, they represent so much more than just a sail design brand. Having spent so much time on Maui and having gotten to know so many of the HSM team I am so impressed at their innovation, creativity, individuality and most importantly sense of pride in their product. Everyone involved from the design team of Tom, Jeff and Glenn to the crew at HSM Pro Center – Kanaha Kai, to the riders on the sails, always seem so happy and proud of what they are achieving with HSM. I am ecstatic to have been included in the Hot Sails Maui family and hope through my efforts both on and off the water, I can channel the essence of the brand and be an ambassador of their ethos. Thank you to everyone at Hot Sails Maui for giving me this amazing opportunity and I cannot wait to get out on the water now, more than ever, on my brand new Firelights. These sails are the lightest, most manoeuvrable sails I have ever used and I hope to take my sailing to the next level whist using them. Mahalo Hot Sails Maui! Or as we say in Irish, Go raibh míle maith agaibh!' Katie McAnena blog
