Le previsioni impossibili...uscita di 1,30 ora circa con la 4,7, mare incrociato, rafficoni esagerati a tratti, solo 20 minuti di perfezione, il resto puro combattimento... con nuotata finale per recupero attrezzatura di un "collega".... ouch! sta Liguria! raro uscire con vento regolare nehhhh??!!!!! comunque bello!
ps., thanks for sharing!

2 years ago in vintilegna....and 10.500 plays..

Music by Peter Bergmann

"I had forgotten it. I knew I would find it again. It was waiting for me. Even for a single day.
Beautiful, mighty, unrestrained, majestic, furious.
The arrival of the Mistral is an event. Suddenly in the night, a strong and violent gust rocks my van. I wake up from a light sleep and a sudden rush of adrenalin runs down my spine. I don’t care if I won’t be able to fall asleep again, now I’m ready. The dawn is gorgeous, and its colors are the right ones: bright, vivid and intense as never before…Everything around me has changed, today will be the day I’ve been waiting for.
The light is vivid, the sea is amazing, the wind pushes strong and the door of my van is hard to open, on the horizon white monsters roar waiting for me, but I know they won’t hurt me, I will be there among them and will be part of their world. 
Excitement, also fear, envelope me. In the middle of the gulf the show is imposing, the wind roars and pushes me to the edge, up to the limit of control and beyond. I entered another dimension, others around me are (already) within, we are part of one family.
My 4.2 is at its limits, and also am I. I’m exhausted but happy.
On the reef, locals are writing another piece of history of this sport, their level is top-notch. One-handed back loops, forward loops, terrific high jumps and radical wave riding honor these real heroes and knights.
For me it was a fight, pushed to the limit in every regard, I'm dead tired but I was there (fighting) as never before.
This is the Mistral, the Wind we adore. This is the Corsica we always want to see and which we love."
Aloha, CattaZen.

I also thank Wall-e for his precious and important translations and his critical sense, Otto Jan Willem for his enthusiasm and his willingness to believe in “impossible” ventures.
The last big thanks goes to Peter Bergmann for the soundtrack and for his inspirational music.

Ora ho capito, quando le diedi l'ultimo saluto poichè gli eventi la avevano condannata ad un triste destino causa delaminazione totale, il fato aveva previsto per  lei un futuro di altrettanta gloria e bellezza..."
Fucking genius! Fucking artist! Quel gran genio del mio amico aveva in mente la soluzione...

"respect to what it was,
honour to the wall whereon it will rest
pride to the water whereon it planed
thanks to the man who gave me that board and telling me sadly "it can't fly anymore, it deserves a future anyway, you deal with it"! 
thanks cattazen
A friend."
