Woaaahhhh! Kauli Seadi, Finian Maynard and now: me!!! All of us did join former wave champ Cesare Cantagalli’s brand 99 – novenove! Creating, shaping and building boards for almost 30 years in Italy first under the name Acme, then designing for majour brands, shaper Gianni Valdambrini joined forces with Cesare Cantagalli to establish their dream child NoveNove in 2008.
NoveNove translates into 99, Cesare Cantagalli’s original sail number which refers back to a historical period of windsurfing when new frontiers were being explored. Cesare was an icon of the sport in the 1980’s by making the first ever forward rotation on a wind- surfer and taking the win in many legendary wave events. Cesare and Gianni’s technical background in board development and board riding gives the NoveNove boards their crisp and direct feel, which allows for the pilot to be in the drivers’ seat at all times. Ranging from classical shapes to forward thinking innovative explorations, the team works closely together with us pro riders to set new standards for what is possible. NoveNove is the symbol of quality over quantity. I like it full power!
