Mattia Pedrani: about to complete the Bobby Skipper

Windsurfing is in constant evolution. Riders will always want to give their best and improve themselves. Sometimes, you are your only opponent and that is the right way to get that leap forwards.

Mattia Pedrani, an Italian windsurfer from Milan, has just combined two tricks into a brand new one. Meet the "Bobby Skipper", a blended maneuvre of a Bob and a Clew First Willy Skipper.

"Necessity is the mother of invention. So what do you do when you're bored because the wind is too light to go for big tricks. Well, you improvise. That's what this is", explains Pedrani.

The Italian freestyle windsurfer had the idea to try a new trick and, "trying it from scratch", he crashed the first eight times and then got it on film.

"So I claim it as mine. For sure some smartass is gonna pop up saying his cousin did it 10 years ago, but I don't really care. Whatever, keep talking, just like Germany is doing with Balotelli", Pedrani jokes.

When you reach the "End of the Road," you're all by yourself. Are you sure you're ready to get barreled at Tahiti's infamous Teahupoo?
