Windsurfing

Ricardo Campello

Brazil - Venezuela

 

Since I started windsurfing and I saw the guys doing forward loops, flips and moves which I didn't know what they were, I put in my mind only one thing - I wanted to be good at that. In 2000 or 2001 I got the support from JP and Neil Pryde. At that stage I could say I was at a pretty good level, and together with my mum we decided that I should go to my first PWA contest. I went to Austria, but unfortunately, there was not enough wind to compete. Anyway, during the warm-up sessions people were really impressed of me and I got a lot of coverage, which gave me and my sponsors a lot of confidence. JP invited me to my first photo shooting in my life. I left school and everything behind just to start my career as a professional windsurfer, as I always wanted to be. So, here I am. I made my dream come true, which was to be a world champion. Now, my next goal is to keep this title for many more years!
