Lost in Transit – Stephan Figueiredo // Strapless Kitesurfing


Stephan Figueiredo​ lost in transit somewhere close to Rio on a desert surfspot with a Skinny Boy by Blade Kites

“Last week I took a road trip with my filmmaker friend Guiga to try and score some better kite and surf conditions. The forecast in Barra was looking terribly poor and I needed to get out. Rio de Janeiro is much more than a big city, its coastline is coated with deserted countryside and no crowd. I had surfed this spot before, but never in my life did I think it would have good kiting conditions. When we pulled up the wind was side offshore with fast little tubular close outs. I had a downwind session for over an hour with only Guiga and some scarce locals as company. Sometimes the best way to find the unexpected is getting the car and driving.”
