ISLAND BOYS – AIRTON & GOLLITO
There’s a stronger connection between Airton Cozzolino and Gollito Estredo than meets the eye. The innovative kitesurfer and the windsurf Freestyle Champ have both used their talents on the water to escape the poverty of their hometowns, showing the world of professional board sports that where you came from, can in no way predict where you are going in life. Jeroen Aerts tells us more about these two exceptional athletes and their ties that bind.
