It\’s Friday afternoon and it\’s crazy windy (in the UK at least). So if you are not out on the water we hope you snuck off early and are heading that way. For those that are completely broken from a couple of epic days then grab a cold one from the fridge, sit back and enjoy our epic afternoon update.
Coming in at the top for the weekend is news that UK Freestyle Champion Adam Sims has signed to the Patrik International team. A move he seems totaly stoked with. Check out his website update here – adamsims.com and this fresh new video straight out of Dahab. Not Dahab again… yes we were thinking the same thing until we watched it, check it out. Featuring Adam Sims and Mauricio Alvarez, all cut and pieced together by Seb Godsmark. Also check out this amusing little interview of the two stylers on efpt.net
In other news, another reminder that the National Windsurfing Festival entry is now open, so if you are feeling the buzz after two full power days then here is your link.
Sail for Gold news and it looks like it has been a balistic day down in Weymouth and both the RS:X men and women have been stuck firmly on the beach. This leaves Nick Dempsey in 3rd overall and Bryony holding that nasty OCS in 8th. Tune in to BBC 1 at 7.30pm today to catch up with the action.
Around other UK riders and Bubble is off to Tenerife to celebrate fellow PWA freestyler Antxon Otaegui\’s wedding. Robby Swift has been enjoying the comforts of a palace in Gran Canaria. Max Rowe is still road tripping it up down in Tarifa, whilst the UK blogs are coming alive. Windsurfbritain tells of stormy tales, sore hands and open blisters whilst the redsurfbus reports on the Weymouth 500m speed record being smashed by Pete Young. 40.12 knots over 500m is pretty impressive.
