Maciek Rutkowski flew home for Christmas after a 5 year dry spell, totally not expecting to score a session during the cold winter days he ended up having a great time, and here is the video to prove it.
“It was my first Christmas at home since 5 or 6 years. Last thing I would expect is to windsurf! When I was a kid every Christmas was white and sub-zero temperatures. We would rather build snowboard jumps or tow-board behind a car. Couple years later and there I was windsurfing without gloves! I could easily be without boots and the hood as well.
Another big change is the artificial reef that was built over the last year or so to protect the coast. I thought maybe it would make the waves better or at least more powerful, but instead of putting the reef 50cm under the water it’s like 10cm at most! So I actually had to avoid it and sail upwind of it keeping in mind that if I crash the current will take me straight into head high waves breaking on dry concrete! Nevertheless I managed to have tons of fun. Rowy is not exactly the most organised and easiest place to sail, but it’s home and nothing really beats a good session at home, specially on Christmas day after an amazing breakfast.
Massive thanks to my man Daniel Dmytrów for dropping the Christmas fork, grabbing his 7D and filming some of the most beatiful shots I ever got to edit.“
