Liam Whaley (1996) gained his kite boarding experience in the wind capital of Europe; Tarifa.
After a few years of kiting in Ibiza he moved to Tarifa in order to take advantage off the perfect training conditions. For the past 7 years this has been his home spot and training facility. All these training hours paid off in 2015 when Liam (18 years of age at that time) gained the 2015 World Champion Freestyle title. The future looks bright for this young talent, gaining even more experience and progression with every session. 2016 unfortunate started off with a heavy knee injury, but he will be fully focusing on the 2017 World title with his incredible skills which he shows in one of the latest events from this year.
Liam is fully dressed up with our gear when kiting, surfing, wakeboarding or chilling on the beach. Liam is stoked about our Smartshell Harness, since his first session it?s giving him full body movement while not compromising any support. At the same time our wetsuits allow him maximum comfort and freedom of movement, making the perfect water wear combination for this freestyle athlete.
What Liam has to say about his corporation with Brunotti: "When Brunotti got in contact with me I was over the moon. I have felt part of their family since day one as Brunotti and the people who work within the company create such a friendly ambience. I have always liked their products and the style that they create. The last years Brunotti have taken it to the next level, they have released a new line which is unbelievable! I will proudly ride their products, work closely with them on development and innovations and just keep on pushing the fantastic Image and Philosophy that this brand already has.
