We are dropping back in to Namibia to kick off the news today. More speed is on the cards but things begin to get even more interesting as Dunkerbeck has now settled in to the conditions by smashing the 50 knot barrier yesterday. You can see his own words here and with a big forecast for Thursday it looks like he will have the perfect chance to try and break the current world record, which stands at 52.05 knots from Antoine Albeau.
From full power and full speed to the lightest of winds. Freestyle equipment is so advanced at the moment that the top guys are busting out power moves in sub 15 knots, that\’s without a tow rope. Here you can see Bastien Rama at his homespot in this short clip.
Now ensuring we get a full spread of the disciplines today, here is a dose of wave sailing. Looks like the Brazilians scored some pretty light conditions in their wave sailing championships. However, they certainly made the most of it with Levi Lenz taking the top spot followed by Ian Mouro Lemnos.
Whilst in Brazil, it looks like Windsurfing Into The Unkown is back, this time promising four new episodes. Read all about it on their facebook page – facebook.com/WindsurfingIntoTheUnknown.
Back to more radical waves and we head over to Tenerife where Alex Mussolini recently had his last session as a father to one. Now the proud Dad of a little daughter, the family grows as his reputation grows as one of the finest wave sailors on the planet. Just check out the cracking headline photo today (see it in large by clicking up on the left) and click here to see more.
To finish things off this morning, we head over to Guy Cribb. Some of you may have seen this already as it went public over the social media channels over the weekend, however, for those who missed out, take two minutes to appreciate the power of the MO.
