My have we got a few news snippets for you this afternoon. Let\’s not beat about the bush and just dive right on in there.
We\’ll open first with a surfing clip. The ASP World Tour saw one of the most epic events ever in these past ten days, with Cloudbreak providing some of the biggest barrels seen in competition, it was none other than Kelly Slater who took the top honours. Proving once again that he has the class to hold his own in all conditions. Take a look for yourself in this \’Day Three Highlights\’ video or go check out volcomfijipro.com
Back with windsurfing and it looks like the GPS Speed record has been smashed whilst filming for The Ghost of Speed. Angelo Pecere sent us this news – Hans Kreisel – GPS World Record 10 sec. Run 48.83 knots, Jurjen van der Noord – Best GPS 5×10 sec. AVG 48.4 knots & highest max speed record by a GPS – 50.51 knts. That\’s a lot of numbers in one line so be sure to check it out on gps-speedsurfing.com.

Finally to wrap up today we have a cool video from Amanda Beenen who will be competing for Trip Magazine (tripmagazin.de) at the Oceanjump contest that is soon to take place in Kiel. Videos from the past have shown crazy moves as riders launch themselves carelessly off a huge ramp spinning their way into the water. See her how Amanda prepares herself for the competition; longboarding, surfing, windsurfing and working out on the beach… good stuff!
