Well news is certainly slow today in the video department, but we have a couple treats for you.
The first comes from the UK freestyler John Palmer. Many will know of his exploits whilst he was working at the popular resort of Club Dahab. However, firmly back on UK shores Palmer now finds himself hitting up West Kirby, one of the ultimate freestyle windsurfing spots the UK has to offer. Here he is in action.
For the second video we join Micah Buzianis as he takes us for a ride slalom style.
News from the popular Student Windsurfing scene in the UK is of a well attended and successful event held in Portsmouth. Not the dreamy wave conditions they were expecting but still a result was gained and we are pretty sure the evenings went off in try student style. You can read the full report over on swa.co.uk.
There are a lot of video projects in the making at the moment and another one is to be added to the list. Slovenian freestyle weapon, Andraz Zan has teamed up with Steven Van Broeckhoven out in Brazil. The two are currently scouring the coastline around Kauli Seadi’s windsurf centre in Sao Miguel de Gostoso. Here is what Andraz has to say about the project and you can find a full write up with pictures on his blog – “It has been more than a week since I arrived to Sao Miguel de Gostoso in Brazil. Purpose? New video project with Steven Van Broeckhoven and sailing of course as much as free time allows me… So far We’ve been pretty busy. Filming every day most of the day, well at least when conditions are really sick…Also the hospitality is great. Kauli Seadi is taking care of us better than in 5star hotel…”

Another image from down under, it’s Ben Proffitt again, but this time not quite like you know him… ouch! What’s the lesson here boys and girls…
Lastly, those who are in to their flymounts and K4 fins may enjoy this little read.
Hot off the press this afternoon is this little number from Phil Horrocks who scored Chile at its finest by the looks of it, a super nice video with some real clean moves and glassy waves.
Also hot off the press is Mikey Clancy’s announcement that he has just been nominated for the People Of The Year award in Ireland’s adventure mag – Outsider. Read all about it here.
