Tropical ParadICE Lake Garda – Video
Mattia Pedrani is a freestyler with really high skills.And he not only lands the tricks, when the conditions are perfect, when it’s warm. He lands the tricks when snow falls, when the temperatures are below zero. Protected with a drysuit, gloves, booties and a thick hood. That’s really tough. And he not even had someone, who closes the rough-running zip of the drysuit at the parking area of Malcesine and nobody, who captured the video from his sessions. Read some lines from Mattia (I-00), which must be written by a 100% dedicated windsurfer. Respect Mattia!
“This video is different from my previous clips. The action isn’t as fast and it focuses more on the beautiful scenery covered by 15cm of powder. The track is also smoother and communicates the surreal atmosphere I could feel when walkin around the streets and the beach covered in snow, ready to hit the water. As the title suggests, the need to go windsurfing goes beyond petty things like below zero temperatures and whether it’s actually snowing or not. It’s way too easy to be doing tricks in shorts somewhere where the water’s pancake flat.
The struggle represents the ultimate test for passion and dedication and once you overcome it, it just makes you appreciate everything more.
As you can probably understand from me autoclosing my wetsuit, I was completely by myself and I also had to leave the Ghettocam recording on the beach by itself and try to pull tricks in front of it.
Icing on the cake, there’s a pretty big surprise in it too!” (Mattia Pedrani, I-00)
You got it? Mattia will sail on Gaastra from now on after he were on Simmersails for several seasons.
