Freestyle is pleased to announce the addition of several up-and-coming young rippers to its 2007 team of athletes.

“We are pumped to be adding a bunch of young talent to the team," said Freestyle Sports Marketing Manager Chad Labass. “These kids all have exceptional natural ability and it’s great to have their support. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to keep the groms on time in and out of the water!"

Michael Ciaramella (Stone Harbor, NJ) – Nothing short of dominating, 13-year-old Ciaramella has number one rankings in the NSSA Northeast Open Juniors, NSSA Northeast Explorer Boys, NSSA Northeast Explorer Longboard and ESA Southeast Boys.

Sage Erickson (Ventura, Calif.) – Ranked number one in the Gold Coast Explorer Women’s division and number two in the Southwest Open Women’s division (despite missing a contest), 16-year-old Erickson has built an impressive amateur career and continues to make a name for herself.

Rounding out the new additions to the team are: Victor Done, 15, Newport Beach, Calif.; Kaleigh Gilchrist, 14, Newport Beach, Calif.; Brad Haglund, 16, Encinitas, Calif.; Sean Pearson, 15, Oceanside, Calif.; Joe Aaron, 15, San Clemente, Calif.; Mike McCabe, 17, Ventura, Calif.; and Chelsea Byland, 14, San Clemente, Calif.
