From Lui (the morning after):
Good morning world.
In Rimini there is sun, sweet wind, and peace.
Some people play freestyle on the beach, other sleep in hotel, other fly,
other work, other drive…
The Paganello Beach Arena, (our freestyle Village) now is not the same of
yesteday: the “red carpet time” is finish, for this year…
So, today the world is different, because their freestylers have new thinks,
new friends, new “dreams”…
And for me, the FPA world championship is not a tournement. No, it was, is,
will only the best occasion for stay together, speake, kiss you.
Because the “essence” of life is not a “competition”, but a friend in our
heart and in our mind.
And we are really special and lucky persons: because we have much friends,
in all the world.
The life is our. We are the life.
And the young freestylers are our sons, and our future.
Thank you, Freestylers. Old & New. History & Future. Winner & Guest.
American & European.
Good morning, World.
