Antoine Albert was happy that cyclone Uesi hit New Caledonia in February 2020. The north eastern wind allowed him to ride at new spots and allowed him to lands radical freestyle moves on his 89 liter freestyle board and the 3.8m or 4.2m! Antoine braved the tropical cyclone and landed wild Air Kabis, Konos, a Back loop over a micro wave… 

Antoine Albert: “On February 12th 2020 the cyclone Uesi hit New Caledonia bringing some heavy rain and strong north east wind opening up some new spots in the south. We sailed two different spots in one day. The first one is in Nouméa in the morning and the second one is at the Yaté lake, down south of the island, that we scored in the afternoon. It’s located in between the mountains and in the red dirt. The water has changed the color a bit on that day.”
