Rider Massi Piffaretti travels almost as much as our IWWF President Kuno Ritschard. Getting them both together at the same location is not an easy task and the good news is that we have just recently succeeded !
Born in April 1994, Massi first hit international headlines back in 2009 when he took the title of Europe Africa Boys Wakeboard Champion. In that same year, he was declared Europe Africa Athlete of the Year. Included in his many titles since then are Europe Africa Open Champion in 2012 and 2014 and then IWWF World Wakeboard Champion in 2015. This year, to prove that he is still at the top of his career, he won the Super Final in the Europe Africa Championships.
When IWWF President Kuno Ritschard presented Massi Piffaretti with his special Wakeboard Boat Rider of the Year 2015 Award at our World Cup Stop in Linyi, China, he was already setting his sites on even more challenges in 2017. Congratulations to Massi Piffaretti.
