Mateus sent this report; “This year South Americans were in Puerto Madryn, South of Argentina. An amazing venue to host an event, wind from all kinds of directions and strength. Four days of very good racing with 20 races done. Was incredible to see almost 50 guys foiling, including youth/junior, formula foil, and iQFOiL.

I had a great time battling hard with Bauti and Fran Saubidet and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, and am super happy to win the event winning 18 out of 20 races.

I was using my 9.0 Severne HGO and iQFOiL board and foil in every race. Incredibly well-rounded equipment and super balanced during the course.

Super thanks to the organizers for making the event happen and for the invitation. It was probably the biggest foil fleet in a South American event.
