After some great work promoting windsurfing in the Suffolk region, 9 Times British Champion Keith Atkinson was awarded the Suffolk Sports Personality of the Year.
For the last year Keith has been working really hard to show the world what a great sport windsurfing is, setting up his own Windsurf Academy and also being the driving force behind the XTREMEFEST 2007 event. His aim was "to target the area’s youth with the object of channelling their energies into sport and away from the less welcome temptations that they are exposed to today."
This is great news for windsurfing and I am sure Keith will be continuing his great work in the region. Who knows but maybe next year he will be battling it out with Hamilton, Rooney and Joe Calzaghe.
