AWT San Carlos – Quatro Desert Showdown

Camille wins AWT San Carlos!

 

A quick report from Camille himself:

“We got there one day before everyone came and I have to say, it was a good idea because waves were there already and we could train on the spot without so much people. 

Then the all AWT crew arrived and the first couple day of the contest the waves drop a little but it was way enough to have fun and start the contest with the first round of master, amateur, woman etc..

On the forecast, the peak of the swell was in the middle of the week so we also did one or two pro’s round to have the final on the best day. 

First day’s the wind was good for my 4.2 but on the day of the final the wind was piked up and I was kind of over power with the 3.8 but that was the good call.

Keith told me it was really close in the final but the choice of my wave was better and that a part of why I won.

Now I have a good ranking in the overall and I just can’t wait to sail in peru which i’m gonna for a little less then on month.”

 

Congrats Camille!

And also congrats Levi who takes the 2nd place, Keith with the 4th place and Bernd, the 5th place!

Last day before the AWT San Carlos, Keith, Levi and Bernd already left Maui! Bernd Roediger answers a few questions!

 

–  What special equipment do you have for San Carlos?

I’m bringing like 5 boards:

– A short board for surfing

– A 7,3 stand up board

– My 72L I had in Santa Cruz and Pistol River

– My 75L I start using

– And the thruster I will use for the first time so I’m pretty excited!

 

–  What do you bring with you in your suitcase? The 5 most important things you need

Pop tarts: cinnamon, strawberry, wild berry, blueberry because I love it, my phone, lots of movies on my laptop, funny movies, my wetsuit and fix-a-flat!

 

–  Do you have a lucky charm?

I can feel like my board is a lucky charm, I fall in love with my board, I love the colors, the draws..! If it’s a bad session, I think it is because of my board, and if it’s a good session it’s thanks to my boards. Good or bad session, it’s all about my board!

 

–  How do you feel when you arrive on the contest place?

I’m always pretty excited to do it; I have to make sure I have everything. I have to stay focus on the contest because I’m here to win. This is my favorite contest, because of the whole atmosphere. The contest is fun and off the water there is so much things to do: biking, hiking, seat and eat, nice people to talk with…

 

–  Do you have a ritual before starting a contest?

It takes me an hour to rig my sail to have everything perfect. I put my wishbone on, I look at it during 5min and then I adjust it until it’s perfect. After that I’m pretty ready, just listen to music and focus on my heat.

 

–  What do you think about when you are sailing?

I think about all kind of things like about life. Not even looking where I’m going but I’m also talking to my self a lot such as: “Hi turtle”, “Oh look at this…” I think about all things that happen in my day, let it go and relax. Windsurfing for me is about freedom, no matter where you are going to, you can just sail and that’s it!

 

–  What do you eat for breakfast to give you energy for a contest?

Whatever my mom makes me. If my mom is not with me, like during this contest, I eat whatever we give me to eat.

 

–  So you don’t know how to cook?

I don’t like to cook; I am always burning everything. Last time I tried to make a sandwich and when I toasted it, I burned myself!

I have a good personality so people like to make food for me!

Levi Siver Quatro Pyramid Goya AWT

 

D-3 before AWT San Carlos!!  Levi Siver answers a couple of questions before leaving!

 

–  Where have you been training before leaving?

The combination I like is biking, surfing, gym, yoga and then of course windsurfing.

 

–  What special equipment do you have for San Carlos?

Nothing out of the ordinary for me.  My standard wave boards and wave sails.

 

–  Who is the biggest rival for you Levi (because you won last year in San Carlos)?

Well, I’m careful to answer a question like that.  Because there’s a good handful of strong riders that always impress me.  One thing I do know is the Quatro team is pretty dangerous!  The wave is long and fun and everybody looks pretty impressive down there so will just have to see.

 

–  Do you have a lucky charm?

I just do the run through and make sure I have a good board and good working gear.  I never feel there’s one thing that gives you luck it has alot to do with if your state of mind and if your stoked to go ride that day.

 

–  How do you feel when you arrive on the contest?

For me I just wanna get out there and sail.  If the conditions are bad it’s a little more difficult but I’m always happy to be doing what I love.  I need to enjoy the simple pleasures of the event and the main thing is to have fun and let her loose!

 

–  Do you have a ritual before starting a contest?

No not really I keep that stuff simple.  It has to feel natural and normal just like free sailing does.

 

–  What do you think about when you are sailing?

I’m thinking of what wave to choose and what’s feeling good that day.  Just trying to flow with the wave and take chances when you need to.  I love wavesailing it never get’s old.  My best waves I can’t even remember because I was just zoning out and letting my instinct over ride everything.

 

–  What do you eat for breakfast to give you energy for a contest?

Oatmeal with nuts and raisins’s with some fruit seems to be a good base for energy.

Keith Teboul Quatro Thruster Goya AWT

 

A week before their departure for the AWT contest at Punta San Carlos, Keith, Levi and Bernd answered few questions. Let’s start with Keith Teboul!

 

–  Are you excited to get there (because it is the place where you learned to wavesail)?

Yes I’m very excited! Every year I look forward to get there because it is a fun easy wave spot and it is a good place to stay with Kevin at Solo Sports (camp)!

 

–  Are you going to be a Head Judge again this year?

Yes, it’s the first time I have been a head judge in Baja. It’s a nice contest to judge because there is no jumping but only waveriding. On one hand it’s difficult to judge because waves are so long, so it is hard to watch the rider all along his ride and then get back to the beginning of the next wave and watch the next rider. And on another hand, it is easy because the waves are very distinct.

 

–  What do you bring with you in your suitcase? The 5 most important thing you need.

A wetsuit, my iPod for music, my book (I like science fiction book), my sunglasses and a hat.

 

– Do you have a lucky charm?

One of the hats that I bring all around the world with me!

 

–  How do you feel yourself when you arrive on the contest place?

It’s a good question, I thing Baja it’s different. I feel I’m going on a trip and then doing a contest rather than moving just for a contest. Because you are in a group living together, getting diner together, spend all days together. No one come just to watch the contest, there are only the guys that take part in the contest.

 

–  Do you have a ritual before starting a contest?

I don’t have any ritual, I just have to be organized and have a good time.

 

–  What do you think about when you are sailing on your board?

Because of what I do, of my job, I’m always thinking about something. It’s difficult for me to get away of my job because it’s what I do everyday. Sometime it’s difficult because thinking about my job prevents myself from going in the water and enjoy. But the other side of it, it’s that I can always try new thing and bring myself to another level. Having and testing new shapes make me felling good. It’s a good job so I don’t mind.

 

–  What do you eat for breakfast to give you energy for a contest?

Steel cut oats with fruits and almond milk.
