News Headlines – Tue 3rd

It\’s all over at PWA Fuerteventura – and as mentioned with yesterday\’s exclusive movie, Gollito comes away from the event as 2010 World Freestyle Champion. But it\’s been a solid event for the Brits too, Max Rowe finishing a superb 11th, Bubble unlucky to end up 14th after suffering kit failure in the double, and SWA graduate Adam Sims finishing a creditable 25th at his first ever PWA event. Full results here, and official day 10 PWA movie below…


Getting away from the Canaries now, you might want to check out what former Formula 1 driver Andrea De Cesaris, a Grand Prix veteran from 1980 to 1994, is getting up to nowadays. While motor-racing was his job, windsurfing has always been his passion – and he\’s pretty handy too: there\’s some nice riding at Eilands, Whitsands, Platboom and Baja on the Ezzy Sails site.

Martin Ten Hoeve, aka \’Lampi\’, has released a handy \’how to upwindwavetre\’ movie. That\’s an upwind wave 360 in our book – essential in any accomplished wavesailor\’s arsenal in these days of loose onshore multi-fin riding.

Prolific blogger the Peconic Puffin has been theorising on the future of fins, and has unearthed some pretty bizarre prototypes from Deboichet – great for nose-riding a longboard apparently, but we\’d question their early-planing potential!

This Friday the Butterfly Effect – the original waterwoman movement – hits Cabarete. Sign up with Tatiana Howard at Onno\’s Bar, 6.30 on 6 August. More at

And finally, we heard rumour that legendary speedsailor come magazine editor Dave White has been working on a super-light carbon GoPro camera mount. Turns out his first prototype went missing in action on Maui earlier this year, but mark II has just survived a week in Vassiliki so will be going into production with F-Hot. More on Whitey\’s site…
