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

"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."

FUCKING GENIUS!


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."

RELOOKING PROCESS


windsurfing-creativity-tuning. 
sound:

images:


A successful experiment . The challenge : Try to innovate a board itself already almost perfect and in my personal opinion beautiful .. Added 2 side fins k4 with the help of Miro who created 2 carbon slot box tailored so as not to burden an already shape extremely light . Cut the nose of about 10 cm and remodeled with the two-component inside the reinforcing structure . Then enter the decals on rails , on the hull and above the nose . Finally the hull treated with a product derived from " automotive " ah ah :-) to achieve a mirror !
see you on the water! aloha.
