Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival

Ricardo Campello Finished Last Year as the Vice-World Champion - Do You Think he Can Go One Better This Time Around? Here’s his highlights from the 2018 Gran Canaria Wind & Waves Festival

Ricardo Campello (Brunotti Boards) came agonisingly close to capturing his first wave world title last year, but just missed out after suffering a loss at the hands of Thomas Traversa (Tabou / GA Sails) in the Sylt Super Final. However, last year still represented an excellent year for Campello with the 33-year-old recording his best result since 2011.
