The big movie doing the rounds today is Bubble\’s final instalment from South Africa – End of Cape Town: “We did lots of trips away but not a lot of freestyle! Just tried to concentrate on my wavesailing for the last part of the trip.” Looks like it\’s coming on pretty nicely too, yet another one to look out for on the BWA circuit this year then – more from Bubble at k540.com
Meanwhile way up in the north of Africa, Egypt is getting set to host the first ever Dahab Festival (14-21 May, more here) … and leading up to that, Get Windsurfing\’s Sinai Road Trip with Danielle Lucas and Phil Richards (more on that here) So here, from El Tur and Dahab by way of a little trailer for the tour, is Phil in action earlier this month. Wish you were there? Make it happen via getwindsurfing.com
Here\’s a location we get far less footage from – New Zealand, or \’Aotearoa\’ as the indigenous Maori and apparently Starboard / Severne / OTC rider Reuben Ellis like to call it. And here\’s some great action from the land of the long white cloud…
We\’ve got a pair of youth events to put a shout out to now – first up, the UKWA are looking for a team of youth RS:Xers to represent Great Britain at the European Open Team Racing Championships and Sicily Grand Prix, 18-22 May 2011 in Italy. More at ukwindsurfing.com
And then, a couple of months later, registration has just opened for the 2011 IFCA Junior and Youth Freestyle World Championship to be hosted by Surfcentrum Brouwersdam in the Netherlands, 20-24 July. More at internationalwindsurfing.com
If you want to see what conditions are like there, take a look at star-board.com where teamrider Dieter Van der Eyken relates his trip back from PWA Vietnam to a couple of days on 4-5°C Brouwersdam … oh, and catching up on schoolwork. Nasty!
Looking forward on the PWA circuit it\’s next stop Podersdorf, Austria, 29 April for more tricking on Neusiedler See. And the World Tour have announced the full entry list – check it out at pwaworldtour.com … interestingly from a British perspective, PWA newcomer K-787 Jamie Drummond joins last year\’s freshmen Max Rowe and Adam Sims alongside veteran Brit Andy \’Bubble\’ Chambers.
