:::: Back Roll Superman it's the name of this trick.
I remember when I saw Mitu doing this trick for the first time, I had 17 years old (2 years of strapless experience), this trick was done at Kitebeach (our home spot, Sal). When I saw Mitu pulling this trick I said to myself (no waaay.... that can't be true) way too difficult, impossible to do!! After 3/ 4 weeks of trying, trying, trying and trying I managed to land it for the first time.... What a victory I felt at the moment, the emotion of stepping on the next level was huge. And since that day I understood that everything is possible, it's just about believing and working hard for what you REALLY want!

This move is one of the nicest backroll combination that we do and also one of the most technichal ones. Respect again for the inventor and for proving to everyone that everything it's possible #legendmitu

This documentary it's for my people in Cape Verd... Sorry, there's no English subtitle on it.

On this one I speak about my life, where I live and how I live... The semplicity of been on tiny Island and no need of much to be happy or to be doing what you love the most, let's say (C.V. Style). Press play en enjoy :))

Rear line depower is the future, we’ve tasted it, and North have made it a reality, no more flapping depower lines, no more hunting for it or trying to grab it in a gust, just pure control at the tips of your fingers! What do you think of the concept?
