Bad luck for Estredo

We have received the unfortunate news that four times world freestyle champion Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo is out of action.

Disaster has struck for the Venezuelan freestyle king Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic / North) as he is off the water for the next two months following a bad shaka crash. Estredo has been training hard for the last few months in the windsurfing mecca of Jericoacoara in Brazil. However over the weekend, Estredo suffered an injury to his wrist as he slipped and hit the sand mid shaka. As Jericoacoara is a remote fishing village hours away from the nearest city, Estredo had to wait eleven excruciating hours in the hospital waiting to have his hand looked at.

Estredo has been particularly focused and training as much as possible over the last few months to come back to the 2012 season with full force. We have heard Estredo has been learning loads of new and unseen moves, we are sure he will bounce back from his injury and will return stronger than ever.

From all of us at the PWA we wish Estredo a speedy recovery and look forward to see him on the water as soon as possible.
