Today\’s first movie comes dripping with irony, as Mikey Clancy and co scored Punta Blanca yesterday – just as most of the Fuerte Wave Classic competitors left the island after a week without competition. Thanks again to Thijs Vancayseele for the footage. While we\’re at it, check out a few memories of the FWC on nayraalonso.blogspot.com
Looking forward now, and it\’s not long until racing and freestyle commence at PWA Mui Ne, Vietnam (in fact, registration\’s this Friday…) Severne\’s Dieter van der Eyken\’s already been there over a week, and has now been joined in training by our own Max Rowe and Phil Soltysiak amongst others. Check out Dieter\’s report on severnesails.com
On a day New Zealand has hit the global headlines following Christchurch\’s devastating earthquake, a report on the NZ Windsurfing Slalom Nationals and IFCA Oceanic Slalom Champs has been posted to ifca.internationalwindsurfing.com – in the men\’s fleet Dunedin\’s Gareth Wood beat James Dinnis (Taranaki) and Rowan Law (Perth) to the prize, while Annie Crombie (Christchurch) took the women\’s over Sue Bradley (Queenstown).
Talking of global headlines, as unrest ripples out through the Middle East, Egypt seems to be settling down after the uprising. But the troubles in Cairo apparently never extended onto the Sinai Peninsular, so it\’s business as usual at centres like Moonbeach. Check out centre manager Schlep\’s take on events here.
Heading back to the Antipodes, check out the latest trailer for Jason Polakow\’s forthcoming Australia story…
Looks a bit too warm for any of us frozen Euros to cope with right now, eh? So how\’s this for a bit of gritty reality? Paul Zeper\’s Winter sessions in Holland at the Westeinder Plas in the Netherlands.
And finally, how\’s this for temptation? Tatiana Howard and Shawna Cropas Surfing the Islands to trail their The Butterfly Effect clinics on Fiji and Maui in 2011. But simmer down fellas: unfortunately these courses are explicitly for women. More at tatianahoward.com
