It happens once every 7 year at Ponta Preta, waves as big as houses. We were lucky to be there to capture Elvis Jose Almeida Nunes with the new Swell v2 on Super Sunday.
After kitesurfing the big waves for a couple of hours, Elvis was unlucky, got thrown off his board by the foam crashed his kite and spent almost 2 minutes under. His friend Airton rescued him and he got back out there!
"Today there was a huge swell, it was about 6 meter of waves. The last time I saw these big waves here in Ponta Preta, it was around 2007. It was a wonderful day here, we have flew our kites all day!"
