Let\’s kick off today with news from the young freestyler Jamie Drummond. Having enjoyed his trip to Fuerteventura and the PWA competition there it seems it has come to a bitter end as his board was stolen sometime yesterday. We know it\’s a long shot but he is obviously pretty keen to get it back, so if it was taken by mistake or is spotted elsewhere then let us know and we will pass on the details (firstname.lastname@example.org). Description – 2012 Starboard Flare 101l, darker graphics with a distinctive K4 yellow fin and Mystic deckplate.
For our first video dose today we have a nice webisode from the Aruba Hi-Winds event, worth a watch as Kiri lands the \’new move\’ from Gollito already on video sometime before Gollito has shown it to the public. Head on over to our forum to discuss.
Going round a few more UK riders and it looks like the young Oscar Carmichael is enjoying his time in Egypt, landing some really top level moves, read about it all here. Max Rowe seems fairly pleased with his efforts at the recent PWA event, as does Andy \’Bubble\’ Chambers. No updates from our other UK competitors yet so let\’s jump over to the Olympics.
Yesterday saw the first two races for both the men and women. We already reported that Nick Dempsey came out in 4th place but Bryony Shaw hadn\’t quite finished by the time we posted. However, if you head over to our sister site boards.co.uk you can keep up to speed with live updates throughout the competition and you will notice Bryony came in 6th overall but is confident about making the podium this year. Check an interview with Bryony as she came off the water yesterday by clicking here and full results here.
Sticking to some more local news, those that no of the Esso Beach at Hayling Island wil be sad to hear that for at least two weeks access to the beach is severly restricted. Read all about it here.
Our next video comes from Loft TV, another clip from PWA Fuerteventura, with yet more great action, great angles and hot chicks…
