SLINGSHOT INTRODUCES ITS NEWEST ELITE TEAM RIDER

Posted: Feb 14, 2014

Slingshot has a proven track record of grooming great riders in our sport–helping build the likes of Ruben Lenten, Youri Zoon, and Ben Wilson. We take pride in finding and recognizing talent and as a result have built a respected reputation helping riders grow to their full potential as both athletes and as people.



Finding this talent is never easy. For the last few years team manager Mauricio Abreu has searched and waited patiently to find the next great rider. His search brought him back to his home country of Brazil and the talent he discovered there is profound.

This talent lies within fifteen year old Carlos “Bebe” Mario, that managed to win the first PKRA event he ever entered. If you haven’t heard of Carlos, the video recap of that event is a must see. Watch it now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCF1Arad9Ys


Under the guidance of Slingshot Sports we are confident this talented young Brazilian has what it takes to become part of the next generation of PKRA champions and redefine what’s possible in ‘freestyle’ kiteboarding. And on Feb 17th, one day before Bebe’s first PKRA event as a Slingshot rider, we are releasing our new short film The story begins: Carlos Mario + Slingshot, so sit back and enjoy the next chapter of kiteboarding history.
