Welcome to the Thursday AM update.
French freestyler Julien Mas has released a tribute to the late, great Vincent Mellouet. Vincent recently passed away whilst wave-sailing at one of his home breaks and Julien has named a new move in his honour. \’The Mellouet\’ is a Flaka followed by a sail duck into another move. Here, Julien demonstrates a \’Mellouet into Bob\’.
The next video this morning comes from British wave sailor Robby Swift. A Chilean regular, check out Swifty as he takes us on tour of his pimp beachfront house before tucking into some chunky waves on his surfboard and windsurf gear. Think \’MTV Cribs\’ plus awesome action!
