News Headlines – Tue 13th

Okay, we mentioned the results yesterday but that doesn\’t mean you\’ve watched the Epicsessions / Shadowbox Gorge Jump-Off movie. And it\’s a good\’un – Whit Poor and Brian Metcalf-Perez dogfighting above Columbia River Gorge. Great concept – here\’s hoping it eventually migrates to the Canaries … maybe even Rhossi or the South Coast one day?


What we do have from British shores is a Hove Slalom report, the weekend before last, courtesy of Nik Baker. Steve Thorp tells us Mat Pearch also cleaned up at BSA Hunstanton on a windy Sunday just gone, followed by Rich Jones and James Dinsmore. Also at Hunstanton, Oscar Carmichael took the freestyle according to third-placed Sam Conroy. And this weekend the UKWA course racers get their go down in South Wales for the Mumbles Cup 4, 17-18 July…

Staying out west, Steve King has a new Moo Custom to rip apart the West Country waves, while Dan Gardner has a box-fresh trailer-fin to take back to Ireland. Moo!

Meanwhile Tushingham / Starboard team rider and demo man George Shillito endured the long drive from Cornwall to heatwave Essex to deliver a pair of demos over the weekend, which also included a brush with Southend\’s classical music counter-culture on Saturday night. And on a more mainstream note, a certain Mika was recently spotted back down at the Shillitos\’ Polkerris Beach centre. So eyes down on George\’s blog for a long hot summer of star-spotting in Fowey…

Talking of Starboard, it\’s all about their new weight-saving multi-fin Slot Box right now – check it out

And finally, back on rhythm, a Peruvian music student Juan Carlos Gonzalez has recorded some emotive beats: \’Musica con Windsurf\’. Nice!
