Yann Rifflet, French freerider, lives in Ibiraquera in the South of Brazil. A big swell hit Farol de Santa Maria. It’s about a 1,5 hour drive south from Yann’s home. The wind was light, but he managed to make it out at Praia do Cardoso and he was able to ride a few big “walls”. He was on his 82 liter board and 5.0m sail. Yann told us, the conditions were the biggest he ever experienced. Well done Yann!!
