We hope the Windsurf Season 2014 went well for you. What did you do after your last event? "Although Windsurf Season 2014 wasn't as successful as I would have liked it to be, but I am quite satisfied with my results: 6th place in Euro Cup, 2nd place in FW World Ranking, 1st place in European Championship in Grand Master category, 1st place in Lithuania championship and 1st place in three day marathon in Curonian Lagoon which attracted 88 participants. After my last event in 2014 which was Lithuanian championship we were training on Kaunas Reservoir until it froze up."


With shock we have received the information that Alberto Menegatti has passed away.

We still remember Alberto from the first Euro-Cup seasons around the year 2000. „Bambino“ was the uprising Italian windsurfing talent and it was fascinating to follow his sportive development which led him up to the second place of the PWA World Tour in 2013. Last year he wasn’t able to follow the complete PWA Tour due to an injury. But he was on track to return this year.

But Alberto was also a great boy and it was always inspiring and fun to meet up with him. The stronger we were hit by the information about his sudden death. There are no words to describe our feelings about this loss.

Our condolences go to his family and friends. We will not forget Alberto!

1) We hope the Windsurf Season 2014 went well for you. What did you do after your last event?
"The last events was the PWA in La torche which was an incredible event (but no slalom unfortunately) then the last step of the french  windsurf tour AFF in Brittany (Carnac) with some massives slalom then after that I went back to university."


2) How/Where did you spend the winter holidays? Did you travel somewhere nice and warm to start training already?
"Not really warm but windy, each winter I go training in high wind in Leucate around Christmas. The tramontana is cold but strong so it's good for training especially to try the small gear. Most of the time I ride at home by the fresh Atlantic west coast close to La Rochelle"


3) Is there anything you definitely want to improve for the upcoming season? Something you were unhappy with in 2014?
"No really something special but I got new brands sponsor for my gear so I need to spend a lot of time on the water to test many things."
