It is called Maverick and is a “four-in-one” drift (seated and standing sailing, sup, windsurfing) designed by the creator of the bestselling O’pen BIC, Italian Daniele Vitali, with the support of the British company Maverick World, which, with Mark Knight and Glen Truswell, world champion International14, oversaw its technical and production development.
