We\’ve got a fair few videos for you this morning, so we will rattle through them and let you enjoy some great action.

The first is another edit from Baja of the recent AWT Desert Showdown. An edit from Bernd Roediger, it includes some impressive moves considering how offshore the wind.

As the AWT moves from one spot to the next, there\’s already an event preview video out…

AWT in Pacasymo is certainly set to be pretty all time, with the most dreamy lefts you could ever imagine. Keep an eye on all the action over at www.americanwindsurfingtour.com.

From one wave video to the next, this cut comes from Justin Denel. Amazing effects and outstanding moves all pieced together in this futuristic edit…

We have the day 5 report and video from the JP/NP Young Guns Camp for you now. Looks like light winds hit again…

Day 5

If you refer to baseball lingo, the Meltemi had its second strike today. The light wind was used for a cool baseball match on the beach in the morning. After lunch the whole crew went on the water to practice some light wind tricks – the Russian Young Guns Kostija and Ivan showed amazing tricks like the gecko cana brava and switch stance geckos. Others were blasting around with slalom boards. The coaches organized a little speed competition in the bay and it was incredible to see, how some light kids were able to handle even 8 m2 sails. Andy Bubble Chambers and world champion Steven van Broeckhoven were out on the water almost the whole afternoon, training with the kids and practicing crazy moves like the Finies’sail throw. It was good to see that even a world champion, who windsurfs like a machine in planing conditions, has to go down the same road of crashing when trying new tricks – he’s human after all. In time for the competition tomorrow, the wind is predicted to kick in as usual for a breath taking home-run.
