The Italian windsurfing grandee and founder of 99NoveNove Cesare Cantagalli (I-99) returned to Cape Town (South Africa) at the end of February, after many years of absence. The inventor of the Cheese Roll used to spend a lot of time in South Africa during the late 80ties and he won the invitational wave contest in South Africa in 1986, the Gunston Cup. And exactly, this Gunston Cup was the reason for Cesare to return and meet with friends from the old times.
Cesare, although he hasn’t been on the windsurfing board since 2008, had some nice windsurfing sessions, too. He still knows how to look good on the board and how to hit the lip. Hats off to the 46 year old Italian. And it seems his fire for windsurfing came back. At the moment Cesare is on his way to Maui to ride some more waves and get back to old form.
