Professional tow-in windsurfing is back in the spotlight. Ricardo Campello proved that artificial waves are the perfect ramps for wind acrobats, in the blue lagoon of the Siam Park, in Tenerife.

The 2014 Dunkerbeck Eyewear Tow-In Exhibition invited the top eight sailors, plus three wildcards, to showcase their aerial arsenal in front of hundreds of spectators.

There were remarkable rotations, painful-looking crashes, near-misses with the wall, and super high jumps with the precious assistance of a jet ski. After the early rounds, Campello, Robby Swift and Leon Jamaer moved to the final.

The Brazilian windsurfer kept his performance up in the air to storm to an emphatic victory. He rotated through crazy paskos, shaka into pushloops and pushloops into shakas, and managed to keep Robby Swift and Leon Jamaer at bay.

The PWA World Tour windsurfers will now prepare for the Indoor Windsurfing World Cup, to be held between 5th-7th September, in Warsaw, Poland.
