Andrea Ragazzoni [ITA, Airush]
"Hi my name is Andrea Ragazzoni, i'm 20 years old and come from Rome, Italy.
I'm a professional kitesurfer and my main sponsors are AIRUSH and ION-ESSENTIAL.
For me kitesurfing is a lifestyle and it is my first passion, for this reason i love to teach it and to spent much time as possible in the water.
My discipline is freestyle, sometimes, but only when there are real waves, I even enjoy to surf it with the kite.
I'm doing the national competitions for this year and the next one i will certainly do the international championship.
For now my ambition is for sure to win the italian title, but it's difficult the level is very high, this year we have a lot of good and aggressive rider.
My best trick is the kgb and the blindjudge, i like pretty much these tricks because i can be very very power with the kite super low, and i can even add some grabs or combos.
I decide to take part at these event because is one of the biggest event in italy, there is a freeride competition, where the kiters have to cross the mediterranean sea form the south of the italian peninsula to the biggest italian island (Sicily), there is also a race competition that is the same course but with the raceboards, and for freestyle there isn't a competition but an epic show with the most of extreme pro kitesurfer in italy, including me.
My mission is to communicate to all the Italy the essence of freestyle, that is a discipline that is not understand by most of the kiter, infect, in these event i will teach you all the secrets for the freestyle moves, it doesn't matter your level because i will explain to you from how to set up a kite for freestyle or the first simply jump, since the most technical and powerful wakestyle tricks.
I hope to see you there!
