Franz Orsi – Team Italy
Italian, currently living in Portugal, Franz is an experienced slalom racer and waterman.
He joined the Hot Sails family in 2012, winning immediately the Portuguese Slalom Series for two times in a row with his GPS sails.Since 2013 he is involved in the R&D and prototype testing for slalom and freeride sails.
Beside slalom racing he enjoys wavesailing, stand up surfing and stand up paddle wavesailing while around the world for some travel story or at home in Portugal in the epic conditions of north-Atlantic winter.
Franz’s words about Hot Sails Maui:
“The GPS is super fast, incredibly responsive and easy to use slalom sail. What I love about the sail is the mind blowing acceleration, the super stable profile and comfort while sailing: this allows me to focus my attention on the race course rather than on my rig, helping me to win more races and having more fun on the water. I have been sailing with it for two seasons now and I have to admit that it is just getting better and better every season. I couldn’t come back to any other slalom sail now. Try it and you’ll be amazed!”
