News Headlines – Thu 10th

Today\’s movie is the much anticipated final feature from the Essaouira Wave Classic, courtesy of UMI Pictures and Open Ocean Media. So, grab yourself a coffee, get comfy and enjoy this 10-minute treat…


Only narrowly beaten to the feature spot today, there\’s some great footage just been released of the latest EFPT contest. Sardinia Freestyle Grand Prix 2010 Part One features some insane high-octane 50-knot freestyle action from Steven van Broeckhoven, Davy Scheffers and co. The notable footage comes from the last day though, as Nicolas Akgazciyan got away from a double-forward off the Red Bull ramp – you\’ve got to have time for that?


It wasn\’t anything like as windy on day two of PWA Costa Brava, Catalunya. Press officer Paul Griffiths got to talk to big Bjorn though, while the movie guys hung out with the girls. And it gave Dan Ellis a chance to update his blog. Still no wind yet today either…

And sadly, as it turns out there was some truth in the recent PWA Fuerteventura rumours. Unfortunately, the deepening economic crisis in Spain has meant the cancellation of Women\’s Freestyle at the high-profile Grand Slam event. A real shame…

El Tur Oceansource centre manager Phil Richards has been in touch to show off his freestyle antics in Egypt 2010. Nice work.

And finally, Boujmaa Guilloul is en route to Starboard HQ in Thailand where he\’ll be helping develop kit specifically for an attempt at cracking the triple-forward loop! The tactics are a vertical ramp and a lot of height – what could possibly go wrong?!? Check out the video interview here.
