Vienna/Fischlham, September 2012 – SansRival is the European Waterski Champion. The Austrian premium waterski producer is the outfitter of the current European champion, Genadi Guralia (Georgia). He competed against 80 participants from 21 countries and won by a landslide - in both in the trick section as well as the slalom category. Numerous other SansRival athletes impressed in Fischlhalm: Franz Oberleitner dominated in the jumping competition for which he won a gold medal as well as winning the silver medal for his slalom performance. Frank Schulze was part of the Austrian team that won a gold medal. What is the communality between Oberleitner, Guralia and Schulze? – SansRival’s high-end carbon waterski “made in Austria”. At the end of October SansRival will send Guralia und Oberleitner to the World Cup in Mexico.
“In the past two years, we worked together with athletes to achieve the first great successes. Now we achieved our first goal in Europe by supporting the European Champion. In the coming years SansRival will work hard on supporting even more top athletes and their ambitions to get into the top league of waterski”, explained Alexander Munninger, CEO of SansRival and label-mastermind.

Will Asher and his brand new pro model ski, The Syndicate A3, are off to an amazing start. In the A3’s pro event debut, it brought Willy through 41’off and to his 5th championship at the Diablo Shores Pro-Am.
“It was an unbelievable feeling; I have never had so much confidence in both myself, and my ski. I knew if I put myself in the right place, the ski would react as I pleased. This is a feeling I have never experienced in my years of skiing.” –Will Asher
The much anticipated release of the A3 has a number of unique features including Automatic Angle Shape for increased edge angle automatically(without skier lean), Automatic Angle Bevel design that allows the ski to stay on edge at the finish of the turn for max acceleration, and Auto-Centering Continuous Rocker for the cleanest, tightest turns in the industry.
After riding early versions of the A3 through the summer and tying the world record score of 2@43’off on the A3 prototype, Will Asher has proven that this new creation from the minds of Bob Lapoint, Kris Lapoint, and Dave Wingerter is all that it’s hyped up to be: Unmatched.
