A few weeks ago Thomas Traversa was invited by Maneuverline to come to Japan to promote Tabou & Gaastra. We had an incredible time with the local windsurfing community and besides of two days of good windsurfing in Omaezaki, we tried to see and experience as much as we could from this beautiful country.

On March 11 at 2:46 pm a massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake occurred near the northeastern coast of Japan. The earthquake and tsunami have caused extensive and severe damage in Northeastern Japan, leaving thousands of people confirmed dead, injured or missing, and millions more affected by lack of electricity, water and transportation.
