Mauricio Abreu Kitesurf Trophy
- Hi all,
Almost every kitesurfer knows Mauricio Abreu, a brazilian who lives and
kites in Maui, Hawaii. Well, he came to Rio de Janeiro to participate in the
Brazilian Championships, and found that the organizers were unable to secure
sponsors for the event. What he did? Curse this third world country?? behave
like a spoiled kitesurf star??? NO!! He dug deep in his own pocket and found
a spare U$5.000 to donate to the event!
The organizers renamend the event "The Mauricio Abreu Kitesurf Trophy", and
the competition is going on right now!
Check it at:
English version available.
The top 2 competitor will be seeded into the Kiteboard World Pro Tour
starting next monday (you will see it too at www.flysurfing.com.br )
I will atend the competition every day and will not only take pictures and
shoot video...I plan on kiting a lot too...:-)
The sun is out, the wind is blowing...looking forward for 2 weeks of hot
Antonio "Tunico" Lage
P.S. THANK´S A LOT MAURICIO....I WISH THERE WERE MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!!
