Koester is on fire, but can he be challenged? One man that has the skills on the jumping side of things is Ricardo Campello. Boardseeker catches up with Ricardo to see what he's planning/trying to land ahead of the competition...

"Since yesterday I have been trying this back loop ducking the sail, Phil Horrocks did it a few years ago! And the other day training here in Pozo I did by accident, almost, a pushloop into shaka, but that's scary! I will work on that!

But mostly I'm trying to be more consistent on my doubles, stalled doubles and also pushloop forwards"
