After an eventful weekend, the RS:X Olympics has seen plenty of movement in the ranks. Our UK representatives have stepped up to the mark and now Nick Dempsey is firmly in second place. Bryony Shaw continues to hold seventh but with just eleven points between her and second place it is still all to play for as they head into the medal races tomorrow afternoon. Be sure to tune in for that as there will be plenty of excitment amongst the top 10.
The biggest news to come from the Olympics however, is that of Dorian van Rijsselberge who has managed to gain such a lead that he will take the Gold medal with two races to spare. He only has to start the final race to walk away from the Olympics as the best RS:X windsurfer in the world.
Let\’s get through a couple of videos now. First we have the fast up and coming Youp Schmit who seems to be freestyling out of his skin at the moment. Having sailed a solid contest at PWA Fuerteventura he will now be attending EFPT Sigri with the hope of making the podium places. Check out this edit from a session or two in the canaries, unbelievable sailing.
Team rider and current freestyle World Champion, Steven Van Broeckhoven has updated about his event on Fuerteventura. The king of pop certainly had a comeback and a half as he fired back through the double elimination heats to take second place overall, read all about it here. Another round up comes from the point-7 team over on pwaworldtour.com.
Our second video comes from windsurfmoves.com who spotted this awesome surf clip from Indonesia. Not excatly windsurfing but still a very cool video.
Finally, the 6th international JP/ NP Young Gun Camp has started in Prasonisi, Rhodes and the first press releases are already shouting out about high numbers, big moves and a level that has never been seen before at a young guns camp.
