Win a Riot Curv Harness from ION this issue in our FREE subscriber prize draw.
Mid-summer swell in Brazil doesn’t normally deliver the big waves, but Sebastien Ribeiro had his eye on the forecast. In “Atypical” from Duotone Kiteboarding, Sebastian chased down the swell in Floripa to land a barrel-filled session in some epic conditions. Check out the video right here!!
It’s always that same feeling when that specific forecast for your home spot shows up. For the next week, expectations grow, refreshing the browser, checking 2 or 3 forecast platforms twice a day and hoping it holds true.
“This time was different, it was the first week of February, in the middle of summertime here in Brazil, which makes it hard to believe a swell this big is really going to pop up.
During the next couple of days, the forecast just kept getting better, the wind stronger, long wave periods, so we booked the tickets and didn’t waste any time. Seb was en route from Rio de Janeiro to Floripa with one this one his mind. The Atypical summer swell and what it would produce. Well here it is, enjoy “Aytipical!””
