Stefano Martinelli: now, he's flying Best

Based in Northern Italy, 19-year old Stefano Martinelli is one of the most talented young kiteboarders on the European scene, and has been part of the Best Italy team since the beginning of his kiteboarding career.

Recently he showed his talent during the last stop of the 2009 Italian Tour where he made it to the final round and was able to show his smooth, technical style. He also finished in 3rd place during the 2009 European Championship at the Lake of Garda.

In addition to his mad riding skills... and perhaps more importantly... Stefano is one of the most friendly and appreciative riders out there, and we are happy to have him as part of the Best Kiteboarding family.

In 2010, Stefano plans to show his talent in the European Tour KTE, and Pureactionsports Italy is proud to support him in this new adventure. The first stop of the Kitesurf Tour Europe 2010 will take place May 6th-9th in Podersdorf, Austria.
