Afraid to say the lines of communication to the Tiree Wave Classic really have gone dead today – last we heard it was Force 6-7 cross-shore at the Maze with a building swell this morning. We can hardly wait to see some action (and find out the final result!) sooner or later at tireewaveclassic.co.uk, britishwavesailingassociation.com and/or boards.co.uk
Conspicuously absent from wavesailing competition this year following his great showing in the amateurs last season, it seems UK Freestyle Champ Adam Sims is the latest athlete to be suffering a spot of foot trouble. He\’s due off the water from mid-November as the surgeons start working on his broken big toe according to k669.blogspot.com
Another breakthrough British freestyler with niggling injury troubles, Jamie Drummond is battling through a knee problem sustained at Poole Windfest earlier this season. He\’s not looking so bad to us in this movie from Wittering and Hayling last month … although he might be looking a fair bit different towards the end of next month as he\’s growing a moustache for \’Movember\’ to raise money for prostate cancer charities according to jamiek787.blogspot.com
Let\’s limp away from the walking wounded now, as windsurfing polymath Steve Thorp – fresh from hitting a 50-knot GPS read-out at West Kirby last week – has just announced that he\’s entering the AWT Maui wavesailing event at the end of this month on stevethorp.co.uk
Right on cue, Ho\’okipa seems to be rumbling into life these last few days according to locals Kevin Pritchard at blog.pritchardwindsurfing.com, Tatiana Howard at tatianahoward.com, Graham Ezzy at surf-matic.com, and Kai Katchadourian on simmerstyle.com. However, it\’s not all sweetness and light out on the Valley Isle, as Beach Telegraph are reporting that the kiters might be spoiling it for all of us by pushing for access to Ho\’okipa … which could mean a new 5-surfer rule for windsurfers according to windsurfermag.com
And finally, a bit of light relief for a Friday afternoon from the Vass Boyz crew as Ric Cleworth and Colin Dixon present Dr Dre, Club Vass Style. Yo-yo-yo!!!
