Windsurf mast: cocaine carrier

The world of crime is full of professional tricks and creative ways for escaping the authorities. We've already seen several forms of passing drugs through international borders, but this one will certainly debut in the pages of the crime handbook.

The Portuguese and Spanish authorities have announced that 6.5 kilograms of cocaine were found inside a windsurf mast, during a special operation in the Porto International Airport.

More than 65.000 drug doses were hidden inside the gear carried from Porto Alegre, in Brazil, to Porto, in Portugal.

The 32-year-old man reported the lost luggage and later asked if the airline company could deliver the mast in a Spanish hotel, located in Vigo.

The Portuguese and Spanish intelligence set up a trap to capture the drug dealer. The windsurf mast was later broken to reveal the forbidden cocaine.

Surfing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will take place in the ocean, not in a wave pool. The waiting period runs from July 24 to August 9.
