News Headlines – Fri 15th

Story of the day is that Boujmaa Guilloul is back home waiting for his hand to heal, and eager as ever to get back out on the water after his Ho\’okipa accident earlier this week. His latest message again thanks his sponsors for their support, and reiterates that his hospital fees are very much covered on his insurance. Bouj wraps it up by saying: “I won’t stop chasing the triple-loop … but next time I will wear at least a wetsuit and helmet for it”. Read the full message at boards.co.uk

Our first movie today is Chris \’Muzza\’ Murray\’s Maui 2011. Ho\’okipa action, waterfalls, spear fishing with sharks, some Happy Gilmore golfing action, even life on the firing range… More Muzza at k202windsurfing.blogspot.com
