Bound for Treasure Island...

In 2007, the biggest ever PWA windsurfing wave event took place on the island of Sal, Cabo Verde, a small strip of sand and dust some 1000 kms off the coast of Senegal. The crowd on the beach came to witness some of the most insane, unreal wavesailing ever. A huge swell creating a perfect, never ending wave, held up by the offshore winds. A clean, unridden face with a hollow, perfectly peeling break...

After seeing the pictures and being told the stories by good friend Tommy Fäldt, who was among the crowds, there was only one thing to do: Go.

Two months later I visited Sal for the first time. In January 2009 I went again, this time with my beautiful wife and kids. In 2011 I went for a third mission, this time with good friends Mikael Lygner and José Mari. During these trips we have scored some great conditions at breaks like Caleta Funda, Canoa, and Secret Spot but we never got the chance to sail the real dream spots; Ponta Preta and Alibaba.

So, on the 2nd of January this year we were finally set to complete the mission; to sail the ultimate spots...
