BWS today announced the signing of world-renowned surfer/kitesurfer – Josh Mulcoy. Mulcoy joins the BWS global athlete program alongside Ryland Blakeney and Ben Wilson. The partnership will include the production of a pro model board designed by Josh’s longtime sponsor and legendary surfboard shaper William “Stretch” Riedel.

Stretch said, “When the entire kitesurfing industry was on twin tips and jumping, Peter Trow and I continued to pursue our vision of surf kiting. Since then, Josh has picked up the torch and worked with me to further develop this exciting extension of surfing. The Mulcoy pro model is culminated of the 12 years experience we have had working together making boards for both surfing and kitesurfing,” says Stretch.

“Its time that the surf world starts to understand that we are surfing and Ben’s vision is the one that’s going to make it happen. It’s so good to represent companies that really support what I do in surfing and kiting,” said Mulcoy.
