Every windsurfer who sails big waves at Ho’okipa has probably experienced the same like Ricardo Campello: Getting washed up on the rocks at Ho’okipa and breaking the gear. In this video Ricardo shares one of his last exits over the Ho’okipa rocks.
I spend a lot of times on those rocks at Hookipa but this is the first time I get the whole thing on video thanks to Robby Swift. Most of the times it’s easy but when you least expect it it can be hard on you! Yesterday I was surprised how gnarly it was but luckily I’m ok! There’s actually no easy way to come out of there!
