Wing foil a Capo Verde

0

I personaggi più contrastanti del team Duotone e Fanatic si sono recati a Capo Verde per superare i limiti del Wing foiling. Uniti da questa missione, Clement Roseyro, Jerome Cloetens e il locale Wesley Brito hanno messo a segno una delle onde più grosse che siano mai state cavalcate su un foil – sicuramente una di quelle da ricordare! Buona visione!

Wesley Brito:
“My goal was to score the best waves ever at home with my teammates. It has been a dream for me to get that wave filmed and some pictures on the wing – and get the best clips of the island! It was amazing, but frightening at the same time, because I didn’t know what to expect, if I made a little mistake. The sound of the wave, when it closed was scary and the amount of water coming was crazy!”

Jerome Cloetens:
“While I was waiting for the camera crew and the boys, I tried to get confident in the wave. I thought it would be good, to surf only the outside of the lips and not take any risk till the camera is on. Still, I ended up being straight in the impact zone, not on purpose, and I probably took one of the gnarliest wipeouts of the year.I stayed on the inside for two big sets, and after that, my legs were shaking the whole session. It made me lose my confidence until Wesley and Matchu gave me a pep talk and made me realize that this was a situation of a lifetime. Thanks to them, I was able to drop a few more bombs, before getting on the plane.”

Clement Roseyro:
„On my biggest wave, I took the risk to look behind me to see the face of the monster and I was looking in a massive barrel where the spit was incredibly strong. You see nothing, so you just go and you hope the lip isn’t going to smash you. The pictures are incredible and so is the video. I enjoyed the session a lot. But now I realize nobody was wearing a helmet or an impact vest. We were only using a leash on the wing. We got very lucky nothing happened. It’s the first time I had that feeling that something really bad can happen… next time I will think more before I go and wear protection!”

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.
