News Headlines – Fri 24th

The Colgate PWA World Cup is due to start today at Sylt, but – presumably because it\’s nice and sunny but pretty still – there seems to be a virtual media blackout thus far. See if you can get the PWA Live Ticker or the Live GPS Tracking working! On the blogs, Nayra Alonso and Dario Ojeda are already acclimatised while Dan Ellis is still up in the air heading for Hamburg…

Today\’s movie is ex Oceansource El Tur centre manager Phil Richards styling it up in Dahab – evidence of the real strength in depth of British freestyle right now. Filming by Phil\’s (no less talented) other half, Danielle Lucas. More from the pair of them at GetWindsurfing.


Talking of British talent, PWA new-boy Adam Sims is keeping it real and about to get behind the wheel for the UK RRD Road Trip for importers Seasprite Sports – look out for him at a beach or RRD dealer near you very soon…

Keeping it British, and as real as you like, the bloggers at Windsurf Britain are back on it after the recent spell of wind. More from Gregg and Clyde here…

DaNewsBlog have an interesting little post about the future of the Olympic RS:X class – looks like the board NeilPryde have submitted for the 2016 Games is going to be 20% lighter. More here.

Sad news from Ireland as we hear Irish Speed Record holder John Kenny died yesterday. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends.

And finally, any of you swampy boys and girls living on estuaries might be inspired by the Mud Dogs of Palo Alto (with thanks to the Peconic Puffin for spotting it!) They\’ve discovered that with a small fin, soft mud and enough wind it\’s possible to sail over rather than wade through the mudflats to the water at low tide. See it with your own eyes here.
