0

Manca meno di un mese all’inizio della prima tappa del 2015 del AWT a Cabo Verde. Grandi nomi sono attesi e anche il gradito ritorno alle gare di Kauli Seadi (ma con quali tavole gareggerà?).

– 2 x AWT Pro Champions (Camille x2, Kevin)
– 6 x Ho’okipa Champions (Levi, Morgan, Bernd x2, Francisco, Kauli, Boujmaa)
– 4 x PWA Wave Champions (Kauli x 3, Francisco, Kevin, Marcilio)
= 1 x Epic showdown

Ma non solo, possiamo notare dallo starting list anche l’iscrizione di un certo Raimondo Gasperini! Anche Ferdinando Loffreda, Campione Master AWT 2014, parteciperà all’evento.

The Goya Pro Cabo Verde is shaping up to be the latest AWT edition of the ‘Clash of the Titans.’ The mega stars of windsurfing are currently tuning up their gear, and making final adjustments before the long journey to the remote island of Sal, Cabo Verde. Looking at the confirmed list of Pro riders booked for the epic adventure in summary we have;
  • 2 x AWT Pro Champions (Camille x2, Kevin)
  • 6 x Ho’okipa Champions (Levi, Morgan, Bernd x2, Francisco, Kauli, Boujmaa)
  • 4 x PWA Wave Champions (Kauli x 3, Francisco, Kevin, Marcilio)
  •  = 1 x Epic showdown
With so many of windsurfing’s greats of past and present in attendance competing at the infamous break, we will be crowing the ‘King of Kings.’ But, could some mere mortals upset the big names? Those with a keen eye on Ho’okipa these past years will note that Russ (ranked #4 in 2014) a lover of big waves and light winds, is ready and motivated to challenge for the top. The set up in Sal is going to be just to his liking. Tom Juban (younger brother of Camille) is another dark horse who tears waves apart with typical Juban style and aggression. What of Camille himself? Camille  missed much of last year’s Tour with a major shoulder injury? This event will see him return to competitive action and with some new sponsors too.

With so many champions and true legends of windsurfing lined up, the bracket is going to be stacked. Those not bringing their A game from the first horn will find themselves in the repechage rounds pretty quickly and fighting for survival. At this time it is too hard to pick winners from the first round let alone make predictions for potential champions. Is Morgan going to continue his dominance? Is Levi going to recapture the crown he lost at Ho’okipa last year? And what about Kevin, is he going to add an event to his overall title? It will be interesting to see Kauli back in competition after missing the Aloha Classic with injury. And can Marclio return to his AWT winning ways? Bernd has spent a lot of time away from Maui this past year following the SUP World Tour, and I wonder what magic he is going to show us? Much of this will go down to who takes more risks and makes it count.

Let the battles begin!

Ciao a tutti, sono Fabio Calò (ITA-720), ho iniziato a fare windsurf all’età di 13 anni e da quel momento è diventata la mia più grande passione, la mia vita. Finiti gli studi universitari ho iniziato a lavorare in un negozio di windsurf a Torino, poi agente di commercio e nel 2006 è iniziata la mia grande avventura con la redazione di 4Windsurf e poi anche di 4Sup. Sono stato campione italiano Wave di windsurf nel 2013 e 2015, altri ottimi risultati agonistici gli ho ottenuti anche nel freestyle sia in Italia che in Europa. Dal 2017 sono il direttore di una delle scuole più importanti del Lago di Garda, il PierWindsurf. Trasmetto la mia passione con progetti dedicati ai giovani come il Progetto Serenity di Malcesine, e organizzo Wave Clinics nel periodo invernale. Vivo a Torbole sul Garda e respiro l’aria del windsurf 365 giorni all’anno.
