There is no doubt that the pro’s are lucky people: always on the water, travelling the World to new places, etc.. and best of all they get to call it a job!!. But we all know that there is no place like home, and Kevin Pritchard seems to be really happy to be back home in Maui (well....Maui is a pretty good place to call home!). And after watching the new Windsurfing Movie II, he is getting inspired to put together his own windsurfing movie. Checking some of his latest work, like this video with Enel Yilmazer, we know it would be a great movie.
Back here in the UK, Phil Horroks is also loving some time at home. The bank holiday was blessed with some great wind and Phil reports his session on his blog.
New British PWA Freestyle sensation Max Row had the great idea of making a night sailing session (maybe some alcohol was involve in that idea!). The result is these great pictures he just posted on his blog.
Today’s video take us back to Gran Canaria, where the summer trade winds are still blowing when the season is coming to its end. If you haven’t heard of Jules Denel, this is a really good way to meet him for first time. He is one of the most promising up-and-coming young sailors. Sit down and enjoy some nice port-tack sailing.
Whilst we are at it, we might as well introduce you to another young great sailor that has been in the spotlight for a little while already and is one of the hottest freestylers at the moment, Martin Van Ochten. He just released his new website, so you can find all the info you want about him including pics, videos, etc… check it out HERE.
We travel again, and this time we go down south to the Reunion Island. The 4th day of the competition saw some great action on the water but no heats were run. The exact description of the conditions was “2m to 3 meter nasty waves, 35-40 knots off shore" in the “friendly" spot of Ravine Blanche. Check out the full report HERE
And back to Maui, Starboard presents the “Maui Chapter" of the Creation of the iSonic: testing, testing, testing...
And now, something special for the ladies. Girls, you are going to love this. Amy Carter, from FLOW (For Ladies of Windsurfing), interviewed the Aussie young sailor Jaeger Stone. Check it out HERE, we think you might like it.
