In other news Adam Lewis and Dany Bruch are running a clinic in Tenerife at the Official Test Centre. Try out all the latest gear whilst being trained by some of the most progressive and radical wave riders on the planet. Sounds like a win win combination to us.

We\\\’ve heard very stron rumours that the PWA Tenerife event will be taking place on the proposed dates, 12-18th July. What\\\’s more the OTC were recently offering a deal for anyone wanting to stay during the week of the PWA event, on their PWA Summer Holiday offer. Perhaps combine this with the coaching above and return home a legend in wave sailing…
Whilst on PWA wave action, check out Robby Swift and Levi Lenz singing…! Yes singing their own version of Looking back over my shoulder by Mike and the Mechanics. The main difference is the slightly more radical approach whilst they show you video clip after video clip of just slightly under-rotated double forwards. We like the light-hearted approach to some full on action!

From PWA Waves to PWA Slalom and it looks like Antoine Albeau will be releasing a DVD at the end of theyear following him during his events of 2012. Having recently signed to RRD he now feels he is ready to claim his title back, but with the likes of Bjorn Dunkerbeck still charging hard it certainly won\\\’t be any mean feat. Check out the DVD trailer here – https://vimeo.com/44649202
That\\\’s all for this morning, head back later for yet more action.
