Just a couple snippets this afternoon. First you have to check out this nice clip from Diony Guadagnino. Having entered a video contest, Diony came out on top in the Water category with this movie about discovering his home-spot Little Hawaii and then heading to the real Hawaii to explode all his radicalness – as he put it. Check it out – https://vimeo.com/43269611#

A second video comes from one of the most defining Starboard tack sailors to date. Inventing numerous new moves, continually pushing the level and having some of the worst windsurfing crashes we\\\’ve ever seen, Boujmaa Gouilloul shows us that he means business – https://vimeo.com/44324303#

Finally, it is with the utmost regret that we have to bring you the deeply sad news that the co-founder of windsurfing itself has passed on. The full circumstances are unknown but what is known is that his shapes, designs and commitment to the sport have not just influenced us as windsurfers but also the entire World of action sports. Jim Drake was truly a dedicated man and our thoughts are with his close friends and family in this sad time. If you manage to hit the water over the next few days, spare a thought for them all and for the influence that Jim had on what you will be riding.
