The first shipment of the new crop of RRD boards are due into the UK in just a couple of weeks\’ time, and the Italian brand are beginning to release product movies for each of their boards. The Clones, fresh back from testing on Tenerife, already have good things to say about them: look out for the full test later this year. And here, for your delectation, are Skyeboy and friends putting the new Wave Cult through its paces on Maui. Eyes down for more RRD clips on Mpora very soon…
Despite relatively lacklustre conditions for the PWA Waves last month, reports from Pozo are that they\’re enjoying a classic summer – the wind\’s not stopped blowing since June according to Dario Ojeda, while Pozo News focusses on the mere mortal \’common people\’ out holidaying on Gran Can.

You can\’t help but have noticed there\’s been a bit of breeze around the UK recently – and even some little waves. Windsurf Britain\’s Clyde Waite and Gregg Dunnett scored a pleasant surprise at Milfland on Sea yesterday, while Howard at Fisher Viking is revelling in a bit of wind down Daymer way on Devon\’s north coast. Would be nice to think they left the weekend warriors a bit too – see how your time off might go at www.bigsalty.co.uk
And finally, the countdown continues with just four weeks to go until the National Windsurfing Festival, Hayling Island, 4-5 September – you won\’t want to miss it, so if you haven\’t entered yet, DO IT NOW!
