Redondo Beach, Feb. 9 2009 – Body Glove International is stoked to announce Gabe Kling has signed on to the Body Glove team. For 2009 Gabe will be rocking Body Glove wetsuits.
"It's really exciting to have Gabe as a part of the family," says Greg Browning, "He is an incredible surfer with great style. We're looking forward to his ride on the WCT in 2009."
Gabe won his first title, ESA Jr Men's Champ, back in 1997 and has worked hard everyday since then. With a tremendous 2nd place showing in Portugal on the WQS in 2008, he's keeping that momentum going in 2009.
