More than 30 knots of wind
Today we saw Sotavento at itÂ´s best for highwind freeriding. Arriving around 15.00 at Center one the wind went up to 30 knots. Guests came back to the center to get smaller gear. I went on Evo 80 and Gator 4,7, which was a good choice. In the heavy gusts I could have sailed on my girlfriendÂ´s 3,7 for sure.
I met Denis at the water and later on the beach. He is Italian and is importing many brands in windsurfing, kitesurfing, clothing and so on for the Egli company. He did compete in the PWA freestyle events at his local spot some years ago and still find a hour a day to get on the board. But just if there is enough wind and a little chance to ride a wave. Denis was on 4,7.
I also met Davide, a 19 years old Italian freestyler, who actually works in the center and sails as much as the job allows him to get on the water. The Garda Local, unluckily he lives at South side of the lake, landed perfect Onehanded Ponches and tried massive Wymaroos.
