Follow Austrian pro windsurfer Marco Lang and reigning IFCA Slalom windsurfing World Champion Gonzalo Costa Hoevel on an epic 9000km road trip through Gonzalo’s home country – Argentina, the eight biggest country on our planet! It’s a beautiful film about free racing in the inland of Argentina, which inspires to get your gear packed and travel to a country you’ve never sailed before.
The movie shows how beautiful windsurfing on a lake can be. Marco and Gonzalo sailed at the following lakes: Cuesta del Viento, Lago Nahuel Huapi at Bariloche and Lago Argentino in front of the Perito Moreno glacier. A bit of Che Guevara feeling, traveling across a huge country.
“When thinking about windsurfing in South America, the first places that come to your mind are the famous Brazilian hotspots like Jericoacoara or Icarazino. But there are so many other places to discover in this part of the huge continent. On our three week trip, we found some unique windsurfing spots in the middle of the Argentinian desert, on lakes close to the Andes Mountains and in front of some of the biggest Southamerican glaciers.” (Stefan Csáky, Director of Heading South)
