Liquid Force is proud to introduce our new riders from Latin America! These additions to the International and support teams represent the rising and high quality talent that is emanating from Latin America.
Oliver Umpierre from Uruguay joins the Liquid Force International squad. At 18 years old, Oliver has already been a top competitor on the PKRA, finishing in the top 10 in Bariloche, Argentina. His powerful and precise riding style fits the current PKRA format very well. 2012 will be the breakout year for Oliver.
“Oliver is a great addition to our International team of prestigious athletes. His style, personality and drive are the perfect match for Liquid Force and will have a profound impact on product and the Liquid Force brand,” says Gary Siskar, Brand Manager Liquid Force Kiteboarding.
The support team now includes the Latin America additions of wave specialist Juan Pablo Diban (Chile) who just finished in the top 10 on the KSP world kitesurfing tour, top Mexican freestyle and kite racing competitor Adam Withington (Mexico), and up and coming freestyle sensation Luis Miguel Avila “Perro” (Mexico) who has consistently placed in the top 5 in the Mexico national competitions.
“Latin America has lots of untapped talent. We are excited to have been graced with the presence of these athletes riding and promoting Liquid Force Kiteboarding. All of them have bright futures in the sport of kiteboarding.” Gary Siskar, Brand Manger, Liquid Force Kiteboarding.
