On the subject of the British Wavesailing Association, Flowindsurfing (for the ladies!) have a great interview with new BWA competitor Jody Ward on her first season on the British tour. Check it out here.
Awesome news from the world scene, as we hear that Andre Paskowski has been declared \’all clear\’ of cancer by the doctors having undergone three months of chemo, an operation to his stomach and two operations on his lung. It\’s still a long road to full recovery, but he\’s aiming to be back into competition by late 2011. More on continentseven.com and fanatic.com. Good luck Andre.
Ready for a couple of movies? Let\’s kick off with some Hookipa Leftovers from the day before Thanksgiving, courtesy of mauiwindsurfing.net
Over to the Ile de Ré on the French west coast and a spot known as \’Diamond Head\’ for a little Sealion Session of light wind waveriding courtesy of Thomas Ducrot.
And click robbyswift.com for his view of proceedings (or the lack of them) at PWA Cabo Verde.
Back in the British Isles, our occasional winter \’Penguin of the Week\’ title has to go to Oisin van Gelderen who battled out through the snow and liberally applied the neoprene for a speed session at Burrow Beach on Saturday. Brrr…
And finally, as most parts of the UK have now had snow and it seems to be windy too, we want to see it being made use of. Nope, it\’s not ideal for windsurfing but remember the Tushy boys showed us what was possible on the Rhossi dry ski slope earlier this year? Send your snowsurfing pictures to [email protected] or upload videos to mpora.com/windsurfing – there is no prize but fame and glory…
