Freestyle Move of the Year

Venezuela

Description

Gollito invented the move in 2011 and performed it first in competition in Fuerte. He named the move PASKO. Like many other moves invented by Gollito, this move will see freestyle move to another level again. I believe we will see many double freestyle moves completely in the air in the future.

Comment

Best move I saw this year in freestyle.

Description

"Don't Let Go" is a true documentary about windsurfing. Filmed in ten different countries over the past two years, we captured all aspects of being a pro windsurfer. From travelling to remote destinations, riding the biggest waves, competing on the world tour, suffering serious injuries and fighting hard to come back. There are good and bad times - whatever it is - don't let go.
