We\’ve got to confess today\’s a pretty slow news day windsurfing-wise – so we thought we\’d kick off with a couple of movies to add a bit of colour. And they don\’t come much more saturated than this: Julien Mas and Bastien Rama at Mangroves, Bonaire. Spinning a thread off that, you can read an interview with Julien at efpt.net and there\’s a super-quick Q&A with Bastien on his sail sponsor\’s site at simmerstyle.com
Moving on, let\’s look to South Africa for movie number two: BEL-101 Nick De Wannemaeker\’s Cape Town 2010-11. There are also updates from down south from returning riders Andreas Olandersson at s-66.com, Dutchman Martin Ten Hoeve\’s parting Witsands session at martintenhoeve.blogspot.com, and virtually a local now Ben Proffitt\’s wearing his heart on his chest and a lampshade on his head having now returned to Cape Town from Vietnam – and sounds like it\’s game on again at thewetdream.co.uk
Talking of PWA Vietnam (again!) Steve Allen, Ben van der Steen and Cyril Moussilmani have all posted reports on the racing, handily edited together on their board sponsor\’s site at star-board.com
And staying on the World Tour, Point-7 has just signed up to become one of the PWA\’s corporate members and pwaworldtour.com have marked the occasion with an interview with head honcho at the black Italian loft, Andrea Cucchi. More on the brand at point-7.com
Sponsors eh? Hard to come by in the current financial climate – but the Moreno Twins still seem to be doing OK out on the capitally challenged Canary Islands, having just renewed their contracts with \’global player\’ German law-firm Baker & McKenzie. More at morenotwins.com
From global to local, a couple of virtual clubs have just popped up in the UK – down in Devon windsurfplymouth.org.uk promise to keep you up do date with everything happening near Plymouth, while out east in Sussex sussex-numbnuts.webs.com aims to network across the whole of the county from their Eastbourne base.
And finally, our distinguished bruise of the month award goes to Stephen Gibson out on Fuerte who picked up this discoloured arm after a shaka gone bad. See how the soft tissue kaleidoscope progresses at gibboinfuerte.blogspot.com
