A Revival!

A busy few weeks, with the Gwithian wave classic ending my competition year.  Unfortunately no result in my fleet, but apparently I was sailing well in the tricky Gwithian Close outs according to boards.mpora.com: (click to read)

Following the event, I got an awesome email from the UKWA asking me to be involved in a London International Boat show Indoor Tow in Freestyle Comp! Amazing!  Its been about 6 or 7 years since we last saw indoor windsurfing i think, and I’m absolutely stoked to have been asked to be involved in it this time along with the top UK Pros! Hopefully the indoor scene will continue to keep growing.  Its all still pending confirmation, but were all working hard to pull together to make sure it will happen 🙂

Last weekend we got our first practice session in at Hove Lagoon -ensuring we could get up to speed in the 70m pool…did a bit of experimentation with standing starts which worked. Keep posted for further details!  A few sketchy quality images below…

Me, preparing for a tow…experimenting with the standing start…

And…fellow RRD/Spartan team mate Simsy clearly enjoying himself mid tow..

I’m doing a bit of scheming to get the ski we have in plymouth up and running for some secret training sessions (if its flat and windless)…

Oh, and got the first set of K4 Twin fin freestyle fins hot out the mould on Friday (14cm).  Not got a real chance to test them properly yet, but first impressions are that they are super stiff, amazingly light and a thinner profile should mean more speed out of my twin fin.  Mega – cant wait to try them out.  If you havnt tried a twin fin board yet for freestyle, get involved – its amazing for grip but has the benefit of a super small fin for rotations.
