Nosso colaborador @tiagoazzi cinegrafista e protagonista da nova série "Desafio Extremo" do Canal Off que está sendo gravada no Cazaquistão.
O primeiro Desafio Extremo da série é cruzar um lago de 600km de Kite Foil.
Wake up and check the conditions from the sleeping bag. Offshore wind is pumping like the forecast was pointing.
Stuff packed and start managing the 25 knots gusts with the 12m kites.
60 Km coast filled with green plants ahead. Wind gets lighter, enough to keep going(how long we don't know). Quick stop on a small beach to discuss the plan. Couple of gusts felt on the kite and decision is made.
Sailing around the green coast. Wind is on point, we are having a blast.
Wind completely dies in less than 5 minutes. Kites on the water.
Manage to paddle to the coast, plants are rooted more than 2 meters deep under the water.
I sit on my board between our bottles and the camping tent and hold on some plants with my hand. Diogo has at least 40min of swimming.
We have an idea to try finding a way out.
With my right hand I hold the drone and with the other I kill spider on my leg.
Drone in the air. We have a good view of what's around us.
Things don't look good.
