A real blast at the start of the kiteboarding season: German’s Florian Gruber is now riding for FLYSURFER Kiteboarding. The 22 year old world champion in Race strengthens the FLYSURFER team immediately and will be taking part in all relevant disciplines. Flo also wants to be increasingly at the forefront of Kite Hydrofoil Racing.
With 15 years of kite experience Florian, despite his young age, has shown he is a force to be reckoned with and his competition results speak for themselves: numerous German Championships, European Champion and the highlight of his career so far, World Champion 2013 in the Race class. He has not only won titles in various disciplines, but also on different surfaces. Even so more FLYSURFER, THE all-terrain brand fits to him perfectly.
Florian about his new sponsor: “FLYSURFER is a company with values that fits to me perfectly. And we also have a regional link … we are both from Bavaria. I know part of the team for a long time from competitions and kite-events. The harmony was just right. I’m looking forward to the coming period with a great team where passion reigns for the sport!”
On these first images (by Andreas Brandstätter) you can see that Flo is now also supported by LEVITAZ Kitefoils. A cooperation partner from FLYSURFER Kiteboarding. Follow Florian on Facebook and fingers crossed for him for the next competition, the first stop of the Hydrofoil Pro Tour 2016 in Mexico.
Together with Benni Bölli, Peter Müller and Armin Harich, Florian will of course also be involved in the (re-)development of our Kite Racing machine SONIC. The FLYSURFER team is enormously pleased and stoked that Flo Gruber, an absolute top rider comes on board. We welcome him in the FLYSURFER family and wish him many perfect seasons with great successes!
