Good morning and welcome to the Friday AM update.
News from the Twitter-sphere is that the conditions are going off in Egypt. Brit sailors Andy \’Bubble\’ Chambers and Jamie Drummond are reporting on super windy freestyle sessions in Dahab and El Tur. Also Tweeting is Marco Wedele, one half of the duo behind \’Go Pro With Colin and Marco\’ – the upcoming coaching DVD. If you missed out on our interview with the guys, check it out HERE or head to their website for more info.
Our PM update yesterday featured Danish sailors trying to avoid the ice to enjoy a session on the water. Well, today we have a video from Lithuania with a gang of sailors hoping the ice doesn\’t thaw! Check out some awesome ice-windsurfing from Kauno Marios, slippery…
Diony Gaudagnino reports from a brutal few days on Maui – intense rain, gale force winds and challenging swell conditions. Supposedly a \’battle\’, Diony seems to be revelling in the tricky conditions… Check out more on the Hot Sails blog.
Fellow Hot Sails rider Paul Zeper is also reporting on a sick freestyle session at \’The Spot\’. Read his report HERE.
RUS-211 has uploaded a cool preview video of some wave and freestyle action out in Vietnam. It looks like it will be a great production when released, and will we see the star entering the PWA freestyle event in November?
One sailor who wil definitely be in Vietnam is world number five Davy Scheffers. Currently out training in Egypt (seems to be the place to be at the moment!), Davy has released details of his freestyle coaching weekends in April. Aimed at covering every level of freestyle possible, head over to the Brunotti website for more details and to sign up.
Wrapping up the action this morning is a video from Jaeger Stone in Australia. Heralded as one of the best wave sailors in the Souther Hemisphere, Jaeger is now riding his own Stone Surf Design boards. The boards are based more on a surf board design, some with huge fish tails, aiming to deliver better riding performance. They are working brilliantly if this action from Geraldton is anything to go by!
Check back later for more video action in the PM update…
