NeilPryde have launched their 2012 MkIV RS:Racing and RS:Slalom sails. Man on a mission for 2012, Antoine Albeau says the former is “even lighter, resulting in good speed and control in high wind and a very good pop after the gybe…” while the latter is being touted as “The house-trained version of the lethal EVOIII”. Catch one if you can at racing.neilpryde.com
Sticking with new season toys, Italian stallions Roberto Ricci Designs have now released their full 2012 RRD catalogue … in fact, we can show you right here! More at robertoriccidesigns.com
But back to 2011, and we\’ve got a few champion updates to report on: PWA Women\’s Wave Champ Daida Moreno talks to Ed Sinclair on how she powered to the top at pwaworldtour.com. Cornwall Wave Classic Champ Jamie Hancock talks to sponsors Tabou / Gaastra on his Gwithian glory at boards.co.uk. Meanwhile, after seven consecutive winters in Cape Town British Wave Champ Ben Proffitt\’s gone kangaroo crazy as he\’s en route to a winter of training in Australia at thewetdream.co.uk
If that\’s got you wondering how you\’re going to keep warm on British shores this winter, the lovely ladies of FLOW have published a novel new workout regime. Designed for the times when you\’ve arrived at the beach but the wind hasn\’t, get your kit out anyway and try the \’boom hop\’, \’boom throw\’ and other moves on flowindsurfing.com
Ready for action? Today\’s first flick comes from expat Frenchman Leo Ray who invites us to join him on his regular flat-water freestyle training mission to Fuerteventura before last summer\’s PWA event. Tres, tres bonne!
Also looking pretty good, World Wave Champ Philip Koster graces the cover of the latest issue of Boards magazine – on sale now for your first chance to see Adrian and the Clones\’ full 4.7m all-round wave sail test (naturally, available here in just a few weeks\’ time…) More at boards.co.uk – and they\’re marking the occasion by offering £250 of Franklin & Marshall clobber in their latest free draw.
And finally, the editor of that very organ seems to have been living it large all season, and now Dave White\’s out on Maui for a full-on busman\’s holiday. But look out world as it looks like Whitey\’s maybe not \’one-of-a-kind\’ after all. While Dad\’s been out to play at Ho\’okipa, youngest son Aaron White picked up the camera to take some top shots at boards.co.uk … and not to be outdone, Flying Fish / Club Vass\’s latest graduate instructor Reece White then took this starring role in this little family feature!
