after 4 years of absence I start again from where I stopped, with the same passion with which I started 38 years ago.
For those who do not know me, my name is Gianni Valdambrini and I was born 55 years ago in Florence, Tuscany.
After a youth spent on skis as a professional athlete and ski instructor, I began to cultivate a passion for windsurfing and composite materials to become my job.
I can say that I entered the service door of the windsurfing world as a shaper, after having gained various sports and professional experiences.
I’ve sailed in many spots of the planet, but my favorite is at home, Diamond Head Hawaii, where I spend most of my windsurfing days, but most of all to test the products I build myself.
Qualities has matured over years spent sailing and shaping (at the highest levels) and now transformed into ideas and products for a highly technical and ever demanding market highlight a style and an objective bias to be distinct from the traditional manufactured product.
Our past history is full of collaborations with Brands and famous athletes in the world of windsurfing, starting with RRD (Roberto Ricci design), Mistral (Anders Bringdal), Kauli Seadi, Marc Parè, Nicolas Akgazciyan, Pascal Toselli just to name some and Novenove, the brand founded in 2008 which finally returns to its origins and is again produced by our company ACME.
