Bartek Jankowski produced a short film featuring the 2016 PWA Slalom champion Matteo Iachino. In 2015 the Italian was leading the world tour until the last event but due to some mistakes he lost his lead and finished the tour in third. The tragic death of his close friend and windsurfing mentor Alberto Mengatti saddened him deeply and he needed to handle the pain and loss during the whole season.
But losing the title at the last event gave him even more motivation to train harder and in 2016 he achieved his goal and became PWA Slalom Champion for the first time in his career.
