Its bigger and badder than ever, the buoys are huge, there is going to be sun and wind. The British Super X is this weekend. Don\’t miss it:
This is what organiser Mark Aggy has to say:
Picture this; eight windsurfers line up on a beach with their kit in hand. The gun fires, a Motor bike screams along the beach and they run down the beach to the water’s edge, they throw their kit in the sea and scramble to beach start and fly out to the first downwind mark. On the way each competitor must throw a forward loop, then they turn together and race for the beach inches from each other. They travel at 35 knots and head for the first giant sausage floating just 50 meters from the beach. The leader flies 5ft in the air and just crosses the tube – lands with a splash and accelerates down wind to next gybe mark just 10ft from shore. The second man, third and fourth riders crash as they cross the 40ft tube, the 5th and 6th clear it , the seventh and eighth pile straight into the mayhem.
Meanwhile our leader is heading out to the next mark at 35 knots where he crashes into giant sausage no2, he is mullered and is left winded in the water, riders five and six are now 1st and second. The fleet of top flight professional riders is being led by a 16 year old girl from New Milton, the British champion is limping back to shore with a destroyed sail…. This is British Super-X – BE THERE FOR THIS SPECTATOR EXTRAVAGANZA…. Be prepared to laugh harder than ever before…. be prepared for speed, loops, carving turns, racing and crashes inches from the beach..
The action starts on the beach and ends on the beach, first rider across the line wins!
