Florian Gruber, a German Kitesurfer from Garmisch-Partenkirchen is competing in Racing, Slalom, Freestyle and Foil. 2013 World Champion Formula Racing.
Florian Gruber lebt in Garmisch-Partenkirchen und besuchte die Fachoberschule in Weilheim. Dort legte er das Fachabitur ab. Danach entschloss er sich, sich für die nächste Zeit ganz auf das Kitesurfen zu konzentrieren. Für das Wintersemester 2014/15 hat er einen Studienplatz an der Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Ansbach bekommen und wird den Bachelorstudiengang Business International Management (BIM) für Spitzensportler belegen.

Gruber betreibt das Kitesurfen in der Disziplin Course Racing, bei der wie beim Regatta-Rennen im Segelsport ein ausgelegter Tonnen-Kurs umrundet wird und der jeweils Schnellste der Sieger ist. Er ist Mitglied beim Altmühltal-Segelclub in Muhr am See im Fränkischen Seenland und betreibt mit seinem Vater und Trainer Erwin Gruber eine Surfschule in Absberg am Großen Brombachsee.

Gruber tritt zudem in den Disziplinen Freestyle und Slalom an, fährt Kitefoil-Rennen mit und ist im Winter bei Snow-Kite-Veranstaltungen aktiv. Als Ausgleichssport betreibt er Skifahren und war in der Eishockey-Mannschaft des EV Mittenwald aktiv.
