Harry Grufter reports from Brazil
Posted Tuesday 16th October 2007
Brazil kept ticking over as the weeks rolled by in windy windy land. As October came round so did the crowds with high season now in full swing. Isma had to leave to participate in the wave-riding stop in Chile whilst Kristin won the freestyle, wave riding and the boardercross at the KPWT event in Cumbuco.

Junior Brown managed to get some last minute landboard sessions on the low tide at Pecem throwing down some crazy handle passes and crashes.

The crew traveled up to Lagoninha one afternoon to hit some different riding spots and check out some new places. The point and lagoon up in Lagoninha is beautiful and with a decent swell the wave riding up there could get really good.

Bucky came back down to drop off some gear and kite. In 4 days Bucky was robbed, threatened to be killed and left at the airport. Hope you had a good time, Bucky?

If anything it was getting windier some days with Alex going crazy with big kiteloops on the 9m HP.

More next year from the “Grufter” in Brazil. Keep it clean! Respect the beach.
