Arthur Arutkin Living the Waterman’s Dream in Cape Town

It may seem like Arthur Arutkin (Fanatic / NorthSails) has been around for along time, but the young Frenchman, who made his debut on the world tour, is still only 21-years-old and is improving all the time.

Arutkin has already stood out on tour with some of his dynamic wave riding, but his latest training video from Cape Town shows that he may now have added textbook double forwards to his jumping repertoire, which would make him a much more dangerous proposition for the coming season. 

Arthur Arutkin: “New edit from my trip to South Africa - one of my favourite places to be, have a look and enjoy!! thanks Thomas Vincent for the video. Tanks to Finn Mellon, Marc Paré Rico, Samuel Tomé - Photographer and Julian Salmonn as well !!

As well as windsurfing, Arutkin, also competes on the SUP World Tour and Cape Town made the perfect training ground for the waterman this winter. You can see Arthur Arutkin’s latest video by visiting @
