Laser Italia Cup

Location :


About the shot :

Turquoise. Crystal clear. Powerful. A wave, the wave. The light was going down and the athletes were tired after a quite intense day of racing with strong wind and difficult conditions. Nevertheless, I could still see a grin of satisfaction on their face. Simone was extremely concentrated while surfing on this magical wave, sailing downwind with his mind set only on the finish line. I felt like the light coming from within this wave could give him the extra energy needed to win the race.
