So, here comes another British bank holiday weekend (\’Spring\’ this time!) – and the weather gods seem to be smiling on us Brits at last, as it looks like another windy one around the breaks. To get you in the mood, check out some great pix of Rhosneigr from Steve Thorp, with an all-Simmer Proffitt and the brothers Horrocks in action at stevethorp.co.uk. Down in Shoreham, the blue-helmeted warrior Rod from forwards4cowards.blogspot.com has posted shots of Nik Baker and co, with thanks to intrepid photographer \’B\’! And out west, it\’s been 4.0m weather for Howard at Fisher Viking in Devon at howard-windaddiction.blogspot.com
The Canary Islands are coming alive for the summer season too – so it\’s good to hear from Dario Ojeda at darioe211.blogspot.com that PWA Tenerife looks like it\’s confirmed for El Medano 14-20 July. Yep, much the same rumours abounded last year too … except this time, pwaworldtour.com have actually published the dates and an event preview for men\’s and women\’s waves. Game on!
Let\’s stay on the Canaries for today\’s first flick – Iballa Moreno riding some big Fuerte North Shore swell, by filmmaker Nayra Martinez. More Moreno goodness at morenotwins.com
From Atlantic riding to Pacific jumping now, and thanks to epicsessions.tv for this aerial assault – the Oxbow Ride the Sky might not have happened this year, but on Wednesday 27 April a gang donned Shadowbox GPSs at Hookipa and went for a trial run anyhow. Highest jump? Leo Ray at 28.2ft. Here\’s Epic Sessions jump compilation from that day … and others.
Back to Holland now, and the Delta Lloyd Regatta was hammered by 30-knot+ winds yesterday on the Ijsselmeer – which meant the only class that could take to the water was the men\’s RS:X. Dorian Van Rijsselberge is still in charge, followed by Jon-Paul Tobin and Korea\’s Taehoon Lee who charged a first and second place in the rough stuff. More at rsxclass.com and deltalloydregatta.org
Here\’s another cracker from umi Pictures as a taster of the full film due out next week on windsurfermag.com – Kauli Seadi competing in the South American Champs at Lobitos in Peru, with what\’s being touted as one of the longest windsurfing waverides ever. More at umipictures.com (and if you think you\’ve seen longer, let us know via email@example.com!)
And finally, it\’s see you next Tuesday again from us – so what better way to finish than with a song? So here for all you gangstars is Italian freestyler-cum-rapper Mattia \’inFAMOU$ Doubl€ ZerO\’ Pedrani\’s latest track: Ap€ Mai@ (not to everyone\’s taste … and just a word of warning: if your kids understand Italian slang, you\’ll probably want to shield their ears too!) But if you like that kinda thing, there\’s more at myspace.com/infamousdoublezero
