Romain Pinocheau (F-08) from Île de Ré (France) spent two months in Sao Miguel do Gostoso together with his friends Hugo Guias and Louis Adam. They windsurfed at Sao Miguel do Gostoso, Praia do Marco and Galinhos. Romain: “The conditions were like every year at Sao Miguel do Gostoso. 25-28 knots every day at a really good bump&jump spot. I sailed a lot with my 4.4 and 4.8 sails and my 90l and 96l boards. And sometimes I used my 4.0, for instance when I did a road trip in Galinhos (90km further north ), where the wind is super strong with 35 – 40 knots.”
23 year old Romain is a really talented rider. He started with freestyle windsurfing in 2010 and in August 2010 he landed the first Spock and the first Flaka. Now he goes for Spock Culos, big Shakas, Konos, Skopus….
