"Strong wind and black clouds" ...che atmosfera!
Se facesse sempre questa condizione penso che la costa ligure potrebbe essere la meta sognata da ogni windsurfista.. Vento intenso, onda formata, una marea di gente da tutto il nord Italia,(incredibile, in acqua nello spot sopravento ci saranno state almeno un centinaio di vele e++) ma nonostante il caos, onde per tutti. Spiaggia d'oro, Albenga, Andora, Diano Marina, Savona.... ovunque vento e onda, ovunque gli spot hanno lavorato per bene!!
Vele usate dalla 3,7 alla 4,7, vento costante , alle volte rafficato, ma sempre e comunque pieno e potente.
In acqua fin dalle prime ore del mattino fino a non averne più..
Session in acqua con Corrado cui ho dedicato alcuni scatti verso fine giornata (meglio il fotografo o il rider..?? ah ah :-), Andrea, Ivan e altri ancora che come il sottoscritto hanno macinato km in autostrada,ben felici una volta tanto di aver consumato gasolio e pneumatici per una giusta ed indispensabile causa..
Unica pecca la temperatura (sembrava febbraio!) anche a causa della totale assenza di sole...
Il windsurf è lo sport più bello del mondo.

Regola numero uno: mai recarsi su di uno spot senza tutta l'attrezzatura...
Previsioni max 15 nodi....realtà un buon 25 nodi! il che significa che la 8,4 era un pò grossina..:)
riders: Andora A.S.D Andora Windsurf crew, Roberto Actis -, Zanone family, Miro shaper.and friends.
Un ringraziamento particolare a Zanone jr che mi ha supportato durante il botto finale( pin del piede albero che ha pensato bene di non chiudersi) ..ed alla crew della ASD Andora windsurf che in caso di necessità era pronta a venire a recuperarmi! Grandi!

THE NORTH STORM 5-3-2015 in Liguria from CattaZen on Vimeo.
FOTOGALLERY COMPLETA SU:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/cattazen/sets/72157650778519689/
Rough cut:qualche frame durante la ricerca dello spot giusto per uscire, rivelatosi poi Albenga. La sera al rientro uno sguardo a Capo Noli e dintorni...
WINDSURFING CHRONICLES:
"Incredibile giornata di Tempesta!! Mai visto tanto vento così in Liguria. Assoluto, Totale, Mistico. Esagerato. Albenga di primo mattino impraticabile. Giro ad Alassio per verificare in qualche modo il vento.. Miro ha fatto qualche bordo ma presto anche qui la condizione è ingestibile, anche bucato, ma comunque troppo troppo violento. Ritorno ad Albenga per sperare in un calo, la direzione è giusta. Così si verifica verso le 13. Fabio Wind news il primo ad uscire con la 4,2 peak e via in acqua con alcuni locals... Pochi ed intensi bordi nella tonnara, 4,2 ingestibile a tratti, alle volte incredibilmente giusta..
...Combat rock!!!"


WINTER SOLSTICE from CattaZen on Vimeo.

"Two men are walking, looking for something. Something they don’t expect to find.No wind. It’s winter solstice, by chance. Just a small leap beyond the appearance, into another dimension. Far away, around the corner.In the leap you feel alive, your mind stops thinking, the paddle pushes our boards easily, only the sound of water.
The ordinary leaps away as you can touch the absolute, instantly and for a while. It’s important.
The water becomes our mirrored image. Slow is the board as it quickly glides into a mystic feeling of absolute silence. The Absolute, indeed. That, which we unknowingly seek, maybe by chance."

"MIND OFF" from CattaZen on Vimeo.

"Sometimes windsurfing is the thing that gets your mind off everything else"
We have travelled many kilometers. Tiredness and fatigue sometimes are the demons to defeat.
Adrenaline cancels everything in a moment, in the water time assumes another dimension, there you find yourself.
Often, it is difficult to be in shape for the big days, your everyday work, lack of wind and the rhythms of an ordinary life, all get in the way. Everything has its own price, but it is always worth it. Bordighera astonishes. It’s a wind factory… 4.7 at first, 4.2, 3.7 then… Amazing. Intense. Furious. Absolute.
I hop back in my van, licking my wounds. My 4.2 left me. New friends on the beach, I always believe we are all of the same race.
In the dark someone is running, the lights turn on again, tomorrow everything will turn into a wonderful memory. Flowing is the road under the wheels, the night will grant us the deserved rest..

WINDSUP IN S.ANNA! from CattaZen on Vimeo.

A SOUL VINTAGE SESSION!
no strong winds...no big waves... just pure essence of glide in relax at home!
(...mentre il sud ovest previsto ci prendeva in giro non presentandosi al'appuntamento, se non alle 7 di sera, un rebosso regalava planate da 6,2 al Ponterosso e una insolita e bellissima session di wave wind sup riding alla spiaggia di S.Anna!! :) :)

Windsurfing in Bithia from CattaZen on Vimeo.
Music by We Plants Are Happy Plants, Peter Bergmann.


"Its name is Bithia. I’ve been driving through an island, down to its southernmost tip, beyond that… Africa!
Escape from the city and its insane rhythms. Once again my vw Transporter is doing its job, kilometers are rolling in. Wheels have spun over 600 kilometers and now have finally reached the endpoint of the mainland. Now, I take a breath.
The real journey starts and time begins to slow down. The wind, always present, is flowing through myself and my board is gliding farther away.
An albatross (not sure it actually is, but I like to think so) is accompanying me gliding over my head, a bunch of flying fishes has decided to travel part of the way along with me. Down there in the blue there’s more life than I imagined…
For a while I’ve lost contact with the real world. All of a sudden, Francesco, Giulio and Andrea remind me of jibing, just as well, after all Tunisia is not so far away…
The water is flowing away, the wind is pushing as this vivid light rewards me with intense images. Tomorrow the wind will blow still stronger. We are gonna wait for it. The 4,7 is ready."

One day in Vintilegna from CattaZen on Vimeo.
Music by Peter Bergmann
http://www.wpahp.com/ http://www.facebook.com/wpahp
"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.

The Chase from CattaZen on Vimeo.
A Short Windsurfing Film - Viverone, Italy. Filming and Production: OttoJanWillem and CattaZen
Music by :"(INFECTECH RECORDINGS) / CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 Rammstein - Sonne (YmB bootleg) + DL at description and buy link"
"We live in a city. Turin, but its name doesn’t really matter. We all belong to the same family. There is no sea here. Strong is the need to escape.
The wind is flowing among the cars and catches me, the sun hits. Elsewhere the mistral is blowing strong. I get up, unbelieving, and think I might be surprised today. The internet is much more than a simple communication network. It widens your knowledge and, in some amazing fashion, gives sense to ubiquity.
Webcams confirm my feelings. Forecast of the pressure gradient shows that time has come.
A phone call to wake up a friend and here we go. A 40-minute drive along the motorway, or even less, but don’t say it… and we get where I was already thinking we were. Everything matches. Other bros are there, some more will for sure come along. I know that.
Ten minutes to go before entering the other dimension; the water is flowing, the wind holding me and I feel totally free.
Windsurfing means also that. Lake Viverone has worked out today. Awesome."
Windsurfers: Bat, CattaZen, Corrado and others friends of Viverone "connection".
Windsurfing equipement: wave/freestyle boards and 5.0 to 5.4 sails.
