Severne adds new blood to team in Australia

Italian born, and now Margaret River local, Federico Infantino has joined forces with team Severne for 2022 and beyond. Having set his feet onto a windsurfer at just eight, Federico has come a long way to become one of the hard-charging riders that impress session by session.

Severne is thrilled to be announcing the arrival of Federico on the team. Being based in Western Australia, Federico will join the likes of Jaeger Stone and Scott McKercher; all original Severne riders based in W.A.

Among the most active windsurfers on the scene in Western Australia, Federico is also an avid creator and runs his own business “Unleash Media House” which offers a variety of services in visual communication, graphic design, video production, and more. Federico says;

At 8 years old I chose a journey that completely defined my life, all I’ve done since that day has been making decisions to keep my childhood dream alive. These decisions led me to travel the world, meet legends, compete against the world’s best, working for International brands, and more! After 24 years since that day, the dream still running over the expectation!

I am beyond the stoke to announce my official entry into the SEVERNE Windsurfing Team! My focus is on working long-term with International brands that have dreaming projects and care about quality people. I was immediately impressed by the attention to detail that this leading brand is putting into the gear and I can’t wait to share with you the upcoming projects & toys!! I am now focused on the next trip, the Desert is calling! Expect the Unexpected!
