Ok so we can\’t lie, it\’s been an incredible winter so far for windsurfing in Europe. However, it seems a cold spell is setting in. It must be holiday time. Check out oceanelements who are offering 10% off all of their holidays, and 15% off those booked in June, just because it\’s the London Boat Show week.
Annnd you may have realised by now, we like the odd video on Boardseeker.com, so if it\’s a dose of inspiration and motivation you may need, then check out this incredible edit by Gustav Häggström from Sweden. Simply named – This is Action.
From outstanding wave moves to progressive freestyle. The Bonaire boys have been at it again, pushing the boundaries in combination moves. This time a spock-into-Kabikuchi (a what-into-what?! best to watch the link) from Kiri Thode on Taty Frans\’ facebook. Another move name to debate about – \’HAM\’…
Let\’s move away from suspect move names to just more action. If the evenings plan is a wild student night out, then this could well be the video for you to practice your best windsurfing dance moves to. Yannick Nissen in Sønderhav.
If perhaps your evening is of a slightly more tame affair, then crack out the candles, your best bottle of red and sit down the missus. This may just be the way to get her into windsurfing that you never thought of. The subtle form of classical music, wondering what we are going on about… then check the finer details of the bottom turn at a very \’UK, south-coast style\’ Scarborough in West Aus.
If that doesn\’t cut it, then try this fun-in-the-sun clip, from the Slovenian Quiksilver Windsurfing School visiting El Tur, Egypt.
With the UK sailors, and keeping down-under, it looks like Ben Proffitt can\’t keep out of competition and has made the final showdown of the Lancelin Wave Classic, up against none other than ex-PWA World Champion Scotty Mckercher, PWA Young Gun and local ripper Jager Stone and Mr Ben Severne himself. The winner is to be announced soon but check out gunfireimages.com for more info and some great shots. Fellow UK and PWA wave sailor, John Skye has blogged about a quiet GC, but not for long, as he migrates south to Cape Town – skyeboy.blogspot.com. Where he will also be joined by PWA and UK freestyler, Max Rowe who has posted about a last minute wave trip due to the PWA Calendar changes, check out photos and more on maxrowe.blogspot.com.
Before the last post of the weekend, Naish have discovered an old classic and posted it world-wide via facebook. Grab a beer, some popcorn and enjoy one of the most defining movies ever made in windsurfing. A quick scan across the social-networks and people are claiming this film to be the reason why they moved to Maui. So this comes with a slight warning…\’be aware, by watching this you may find yourself living in paradise\’. Robby Naish starring in RIP.
Our last bit of news for you then is that Boardseeker.com will be trialing a new format in presenting the news over the coming weeks. The plan to have twice daily news snippets will hopefully allow our readers to see more news here, as it happens.
