Gisela Pulido Joins Best
The January transfer window isn't only busy in the Premier League. It looks like there are some big movements in the kitesurfing world too! First big breaking news this month is that Best have signed the eight time World Champion 18-year-old Gisela Pulido from Spain.
Gisela has frequently appeared in Kiteworld over the years, but here's a big feature we did with her when we went to visit her at home in Tarifa, just after she'd opened up her new school and training centre when she was just 15. At the time she was already dealing with developing a mainstream sporting celebrity status in Spain where she regularly appears on national TV.

Here's what Best say about their new recruit:
When asked what made her choose BEST Gisela replied, 'The GP is a great kite for freestyle; it perfectly fulfills my World Tour competition needs. BEST has put together a great pro-team and I know most of the riders already from the competition circuit. As important as the GP and other pro-riders were in making my decision it was the family behind the scenes at BEST that sealed the deal. There's such a great sense of belonging at BEST when they said 'Ride With Us' I just couldn't say no."
President and CEO of BEST Ian Huschle stated, 'It's great to welcome Gisela into the BEST family. She's the ultimate competitor with a maturity and professionalism beyond her years. Gisela Pulido and our GP C-Kite are the perfect combination for world class competition - they're made for each other. The GP joins a deep lineup of Best kiteboarding products that meet the needs of every rider. We look forward to Gisela being crowned World Champion once again in 2012 riding the BEST freestyle kite in the world.'
