Congratulations to PWA Wave World Champion, Philip Koster who was recently awarded the German Action Sports Award for Windsurfer of the Year, more on neilpryde.com. And further reason for celebration, as the PWA wave champ has also been nominated for Laureus World Action Sportsperson of the Year Award. Incredible to see a windsurf recognised amongst the world’s most elite athletes; Travis Rice, Saun White to name just a couple. Check out this video of the nominees across all the categories.
Philip Koster’s board sponsors, Starboard, have released 11 new models for 2012! More on this bold step at star-board.com

Formula racers Sebastian Kaempe (DEN-105), Sebastion Kornum (DEN-24) and Torben Kornum (DEN-2) have posted a video of some huge sail blasting in just 8 knots of wind.
From waves to freestyle, here is an awesome video from Eilat, Israel. Adam Gavriel ISR111, who impressed on the EFPT this year can be seen tearing it up back home. Check it out.
To finish, an arty little vid from behind the scenes of the coming online movie, Ghosts of Speed. It has had some pretty good feedback on facebook.com and \’kinda makes you just wanna to go windsurfing\’.
