RRD News:Gabriele Garofalo Italian Freestyle Kiteboarding Champion

Written by RRD on . Posted in Industry News

A super consistent and radical Gabriele Garofalo claims his first Italian Kiteboarding Freestyle Champion title defeating in the Double ELimination Stefano Martinelli. The wind was always super light during the 4 days long event, but Gabriele was always able to go push his limits using his RRD Obsession Pro and RRD Style Biax.
With this victory Gabriele gained also a wild card that will allow him to attend directly to the main event of incoming PKRA Marsala.

Very well done Gabri!!!

2013 Italian Freestyle Championships
1° Gabriele Garofalo (RRD, RRD Wetsuits)
2° Stefano Martinelli
3° Barberi Giacomo
4° Coccoluto Gianmanria
5° Esposito Giuseppe (RRD)

Il Circolo Aki con la collaborazione del Portale Kitesurfing.it ha organizzato presso il litorale pontino di Salto di Fondi una bellissima edizione di Campionato Nazionale Assoluto di Classe CKI-FIV.
La gara articolata su quattro giornate ha visto in azione i migliori atleti italiani in condizioni di vento leggero che ha messo a dura prova il livello tecnico di tutti i presenti.

Il giovane rider Gabriele Garofalo con una prestazione senza sbavature e sempre radicale è riuscito a mettere a segno un’entusiasmante vittoria sul forte Stefano Martinelli, che gli ha consegnato non solo il suo primo titolo di Campione Italiano Freestyle, ma anche la wildcard per poter partecipare direttamente al tabellone principale del prossimo evento PKRA allo Stagnone di Marsala.

Ottima la prestazione anche di Peppe Esposito, che nonostante gli impegni universitari riesce a mantenersi nella Top 5 dei migliori freestyler del Belpaese!
