Capelle, the Netherlands – Action outdoor brand Teva continues to invest in the world of wakeskating and wakeboarding. Besides international wakeboarders, the brand also attracts the most talented riders at the national level. Teva recently added 27-year-old Daan Rigter, a native of Alphen aan den Rijn in the Netherlands, to its Teva Team Riders.
Daan had been an avid snowboarder for years when he caught the wakeboarding bug after a single session and quickly displayed his phenomenal talent. Although he competed in Protest Cable Call 2012 this August, he’s a born freerider who doesn’t take part in many competitions.
"Although I do like competing in events, there’s not much time to ride on the water during competitions. I prefer to wakeboard non-stop on the cable and try out new things," Daan said.
Teva Marketing Manager Barry Schmits, commenting on the new team member: "Daan is known for his unique wakeboarding style, his strong character and his sheer love of the sport. He caught our eye with his strong involvement in the Dutch wakeboarding scene and his drive to innovate, and we are very proud to have Daan join our team and promote our brand. I’m confident that his energy makes him an excellent brand ambassador and that we’ll be developing many exciting projects together.’
