Bigger is Better

Amy Carter Amy Carter

With the light winds this morning in Tenerife Ricardo Campello stepped his way into the livestream to get a few things off his chest. One interesting point we couldn’t help but think more about is Ricardo saying he has mid 90 litre board ready to use here, and that even in Pozo he as using an 81 litre. Which, considering he weighs under 80 kg, is pretty small.

Knowing Ricardo’s weight and boards sizes made us wonder the vital weight and board size stats for a few other riders on tour.

martin ten Hoeve – 97kg.

Today in Tenerife Lampy took on the trials, the tricky light conditiond and competitors way lighter than him. Lampy came through his trials heat in style, and then took on and beat Omar Sanchez.

In the first heat he used his 104 Goya Quad with his 5.6 Point7 Salt. For hi second heat though Lampy managed to get his hands on. 118 litre Quad, which no doubt he needed in the light conditions. It sounds like Lampy is pretty happy with his results from today and is ready to take on the next round tomorrow. This is just more proof that bigger is better.
