It\’s all eyes on Maui right now as the 2012 photoshoots are well underway, and we\’ve got a few Brits out on the Valley Isle blogging on the action. The shoots are all done for Chris \’Muzza\’ Murray at k202windsurfing.blogspot.com. Sarah Bibby\’s still out there training at Lowers and Uppers at Kanaha, more at sarahk349.blogspot.com. And Kanaha\’s where Skyeboy and Nayra have been freesailing too, according to skyeboy.blogspot.com
That shot of Skyeboy was taken by none other than Rossi from the Tricktionary – which leads us neatly onto the news that the Tricktionary iPhone App has hit the App Store. Brilliant: all thew tricks in your pocket. More here.
Let\’s look to Sweden for today\’s first video, where it\’s finally thawed enough to allow a bit of sailing. Still looks a bit chilly, but the freestyle action from Emil Håkansson and Jacob Lindqvist on Ivösjön last month is pretty hot!
Down in Egypt, there\’s been a group of British freestylers on manoeuvres around the Sinai: one of their number, Adam Sims is home now, just about in one piece (at least, no bones broken!) after a hectic last day.

Meanwhile currently documenting the Clones\’ latest freeride test trip, Dave White\’s picture blogging from Dahab – read about his little contretemps with a certain other magazine editor at davewhite.me
