Here at the farm we nowadays surf the fields, but the passion for the wind never dies. We are proud to announce our cooperation with the reigning world champion in windsurfing, Aleksandra Blinnikka! She is a superior athlete and an outstanding character that we chose to model for our Myssy Originals collection.
Despite her phenomenal success she’s still waiting for the international breakthrough that would make her a world known professional athlete. We found the perfect match with Aleksandra who shares the same passion, values and roots with us. For a windsurfer, a Myssy is a necessity on most days on the windy beaches and islands during the Nordic summer.
It might come as a surprise for some of you, but our Pöytyä-based farm also has roots in the Nordic windsurfing culture. Farmer and founder Janne is a former professional windsurfer FIN-24, who started his career here in Pöytyä in the 1980's, at lake Pyhäjärvi. Now, some 30 years later, we took Aleksandra to the same lake, where windsurfing legends are born.
"I wear my Myssy all year round, it is really needed in this sport. A Myssy is also a statement of the surfing lifestyle", she says and smiles.
"Myssy Originals was our first collection launched in 2009 and ever since this surf-spirited collection has been the core of our designs. It has been our most loved collection from one season to another. If you find yourself always missing the sea or the mountains, this is your choice."
It's with a lot of excitement that we present your our first ever Myssy Grandpa!
