The Rock on an island

The coming week sees infamous comedy duo of Ben Proffit and John Hibbard take on a windsurfing event with yet another difference. The occasional Boardseeker presenters are going to find themselves at the Lib Jam contest on the small island of Guernsey.

Johnny Rock Hibbard continues he\’s love affair events on rocks, of which he was crowned British Extreme Sports Champion for eternity back in 04 on the Isle of Wight. As part of the Guernsey windsurfing event, the duo will be entering a race between Guernsey and Jersey. With strong winds forecast for the week that is going to be one hell of a race. Here is what the pair had to say:

Ben “I have my Hawk super X board, so I hope it is going to be windy, I don\’t think it is a serious competition but I hate losing and am not going to let the Rock, or anyone else beat me for that matter” (not at all competitive then Ben?)

The Rock ” This should be a classic event, if it is windy then I think that they should just run a wave contest, which will be better for Ben cos if it is racing I am going to kick his ass!. It will be fun to sail in another new location and meet some Channel Island windsurfers.”

The guys would like to thank CONDOR ferries for sorting out their travel arrangements.
