Francesco Cappuzzo, the 19 year old Italian “waterman” normally windsurfs, surfs and kitesurfs in Sicily, where he lives. His home spot Puzziteddu most of the time has starboard tack conditions. But it looks like Francesco feels very comfortable in Cape Town’s windy port tack conditions. He rides the waves with a lot of power and lands high air moves really clean. Let’s see if he will battle in any wave qualifying rounds this summer.

Francesco Cappuzzo: “This is my new video of Cape Town, South Africa. I have been there for 2 months and I have alternated my training between kite- and windsurfing. This has been my first time in South Africa. I was impressed and I will definitely return next year!”
