Airton Cozzolino – Mindset

In this episode of team talk, Duotone catch up with international team rider and strapless freestyle legend Airton Cozzolino from Cape Verde, who has created a tidal wave of inspiration in the strapless freestyle and strapless wave riding scene over the last few years.

Innovation is this man’s middle name, from the most technical strapless flat water freestyle to being the first directional competitor to ride in the Red Bull King of the Air in 2020. He talks us through his mindset on his equipment, what he rides and how he is prompting innovation working with the designers to make the equipment perform at its best through all the different styles of riding. One of the unique things at Duotone is that the designers work directly with the best riders in the world to implement upgraded change across all the products that we produce… Airton catches up with Tom Court and gives us his mindset just before last season King of the Air event in Cape Town, South Africa.
