Italian Barefoot Nationals 2013

Friday, November 15th, 2013

During the second week end of July 2013 in the beautiful lake of the waterski KLI in Ravenna, Italy there was the Italian Barefoot Water Ski Nationals.
For me was a great competition as I won my first Open Overall title and my second Jump title in a row. The jump competition was really tough, thanks to my friend Giulio Stagi.  After the first round, we had the same distance: 20.4. We had to move in the second round to decide everything–finally 21.3 for Giulio and 21.4 for me. Yeah!

But the best thing was the eight Juniors, 9 to 16 year old, entering the competition, all of them having at the end a result on board in slalom and trick. I was really happy for them, more than my result cos i think kids are the future of pure sport and having little skier comping up the rankings will also help the sport and the older (i hate to say older to me) skier to keep on going and keep skiing their best.
Well done little guys!
