News Headlines – Wed 1st

Today\’s movie comes from NeilPryde who\’ve just released this trailer for their forthcoming Jason Polakow travelogue to the Cocos Islands in the south-east Indian Ocean. Most Aussie visitors stick firmly to the lagoon on the inside of the atoll as the wave isn\’t exactly forgiving. But not JP who scored the slabby widowmaker about as big as we\’ve seen it. Kudos.


If you\’re in the mood for a bit of rough dogging action you might want to see the latest from young Davy Scheffers who\’s found a lairy new shallow water training partner – check it out…

Over on the Canaries, the Moreno twins and Dany Bruch are teaming up to offer a training camp in El Médano, Tenerife, this October. As the rest of Europe starts to chill off this camp invites a select group of 30 for a week of 4-star hotel accommodation, kit hire and world-class coaching plus loads of extra activities. More on

Back home, 2XS and RRD are presenting an evening with John Skye this Thursday (that\’ll be tomorrow then). Skyeboy will be joined by Jem Hall to unveil the new line of V4 RRD Cult Quads and single-fins between 6 and 8pm at Crouchers Hotel. More info here.

National Windsurfing Festival entries for this weekend down on Hayling Island close at midday tomorrow so – and we know we\’ve been saying it for weeks, but really we\’re not crying wolf any more – get yours while you still can!

Mike Archer, the new man behind Turfdog landboards, had a busy bank holiday weekend. First off he battled through the traffic down to UKWA Worthing where Saturday proved perfect for demonstrating his boards and windy Sunday saw him judging alongside the Baker brothers. Pausing only briefly to sign up first placed youth Sam Conroy to team Turfdog, he was off to a windy North Norfolk to score some logo-high goodness at Waxham on Monday.

NeilPryde have released their 2011 flatwater range comprising the Hellcat, H2 and Helium. Loads more on the NeilPryde site, and watch the collection video here

Starboard seem pretty proud of their new \’Armour Tech\’ durable skin material – and rightly so as you\’ll appreciate when you see Svein failing to knock holes into it with a hammer, iron bar and 22-pound weight in this movie (just don\’t try that at home with your lightweight pride and joy, kids…)

And finally, MauiSurfReport asks whether we could we be seeing the return of the asymmetric waveboard having found this sequence of Mark Angulo courtesy of Jimmie Hepp. Radical, dude!
