News Headlines – Tue 28th

In what seem to be popularly regarded as some of the worst ever conditions for World Cup Freestyle, World Champion Jose \’Gollito\’ Estredo proved why he deserves the title by winning the first single elimination in Sylt ahead of Taty Frans, Steven Van Broeckhoven and Kiri Thode. Bubble was rightly pleased to finish the single in 5th place (although he seems a bit confused as to whether it was in fact the double). But the big scandal from yesterday was on-form Ricardo Campello\’s disqualification for using a 2011 prototype board. Naughty naughty… Full report here.

Check out the day 4 action in the official PWA Sylt movie, as Tonky Frans guides us through a grey day in Germany…


And today? The freestylers and wavesailors are on stand-by but there\’s already been a full round of Slalom this morning, with Bjorn Dunkerbeck emerging victorious ahead of Antoine Albeau and Jimmy Diaz. Keep up with all the latest at – including some surprisingly compulsive live streaming coverage with great commentary from a few names you might just recognise…

Still racking up the mileage back home in the UK, Steve Thorp spent a strangely disappointing weekend in Cornwall among the dumping mast-high close-outs. Godrevy and Gwithian suited Friday\’s swell and northerly breeze though – check out Guavajelly for pictures.

Fancy cracking the backie? Emile Kott and 2XS have announced their autumn back-loop course down at West Wittering. It runs on the first day with good conditions out of 9th, 10th, 23rd or 24th October. £120 will assure at least five hours of coaching, a hot shower and tea and coffee at West Wittering Windsurf Club.

Starboard have launched their 2011 freeride wares in the shape of the new Futura, iSonic and iSonic Speed. They\’re looking pretty special too…

And finally, back to Sylt for a few choice words from Ricardo Campello\’s Twitter feed: “In cold Germany, crazy to go home I wanna go to Hawaii and Cabo Verde!!!! Longest 12 days of my life!” Sounds like fun, eh…
