Victor Fernandez & Nacho Rocha: Cape Town 2018

Victor Fernandez & Nacho Rocha: Cape Town 2018

Victor Fernandez, Nacho Rocha and friends made a super cool edit about their recent trip to Cape Town – must watch!

Victor talks about the trip:

„This was my 6th trip to South Africa. Every time I come here I get amazed by this country, how people live and how consistent the conditions are for windsurfing. This year one of the worst parts of the trip was the water crisis, as this makes you think way more how vulnerable we are on this planet and how important water can be. Another bad thing was Alessio´s injury at Cape Point. That day I was filming a friend (Nacho Rocha) and Alessio was on the wave behind him, so I could not see the accident. But right after I looked through my camera lens as I saw Alessio´s gear far away from him and Klaas helping him to get back to the beach, so I knew something bad was going on. So threw my camera gear in the car, called other people from the parking and we all immediatly ran down to the beach to help Alessio. Hard day and hard place when something like this happens as there is not even a phone signal to call the ambulance in this remote spot. Fortunately all worked out and Alessio seems to be recovering well at home in Pozo now. I wish him all the best and he will come back stronger than ever for sure!

I had 3 amazing weeks of windsurf, surfing, hiking and even got the chance to fly via airplane over Cape Town. We sailed a a lot in the south – my favorite spot is Scarborough where I stayed on my last week of the trip. Heavy shorebreak but, super fun and intense sailing there. Most of the video is shot at Scarbourgh and Witsands. Have fun watching!
