Ricardo Campello: too shy to take off his shades

Ricardo Campello has joined the Point-7 windsurfing team.

The three-time PWA Freestyle world champion, and two-time PWA Wave vice world champion is making a move to the Andrea Cucchi's Black Team.

"He fits with us, as he goes over the limits. If some are trying the double forward, he is already thinking and trying the tripple. If Ricardo needs to go to Canaries, Sylt, Maui, anywhere, he is prepared and can fight to win the title in any conditions", says Cucchi.

Point-7 will be working with Ricardo Campello to get world titles into the brand's museum. The Brazilian rider met Cucchi more than 10 years ago, and the time is now.

"Andrea and I always had a good relationship. On this trip to Maui, I had just met him for the first time and we were staying in the same house. I didn't have my driver's licence at the time, so he had to drive me all around the island and babysit me", explains Campello.

"I guess he couldn't handle being a caddy. We had fun but, every time I saw him after at the events, we always talked a bit and here we are, finally working together".

Ricardo Campello will join Alberto Menegatti, Maciek Rutkowski, and Andrea Rosati in the Black Team.

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.
