Ricardo Campello: this is why he moved to wave windsurfing

Ricardo Campello is looking forward to change his preferred windsurfing discipline in the upcoming 2012 PWA World Tour season. The Brazilian windsurfer has conquered three Freestyle world titles and was runner-up twice in the Wave competition.

"I was actually pretty over freestyle, I didn't enjoy competing anymore just free sailing was enough for me. My goal is to become wave world champion", Ricardo Campello told Board Seeker Mag.

Campello was born on the 16th July 1985. Playa El Yaque has always been his training field. The windsurf spot is located in the Island of Margarita, Venezuela.

Now, the Brazilian talent wants to improve his wave sailing skills in order to clinch the world title. He will be having tough opponents, but his wide range of experiences will certainly help him reach his goals.

"When I started, I was always looking up to the wave guys. The waves was what I was aiming for because it is super spectacular and for me it is the elite of windsurfing", he adds.

The first stage of the 2012 PWA Wave Windsurfing Championships is expected to kick off at El Médano, Tenerife, Spain.
