The EFPT have released a brilliant little interview with British freestylers Max Rowe and Oscar Carmichael. Oscar has recently joined Max on the North/Fanatic team so head over to to hear what they think of each other, the gear and their training plans for this year. You can also keep up with Max and Oscar on their own sites.

Some chilly freestyle action for you now. The Muller Brothers present \’BuJaKa\’…

UMI Pictures\’ Bonaire Editing Comp is drawing to a close. 36 entrants edited their own cut of Taty, Tonky¬†and Kiri¬†freestyling in Bonaire and now your vote is needed! The lucky winner will get flown out for a holiday in Bonaire and win some shiny new Starboard gear. Check out the entries on Vimeo – every view and \’like\’ counts!

If you\’re planning on jetting away for some windsurf action this summer, give Ocean Elements a thought. The Vassiliki-based tour operator have doubled the size of their Club hotel and filled it with new 2012 kit from Starboard and Tushingham.

Another Vass regular, Globalshots founder Jay Haysey is out in sunny St.Lucia at the moment. After \’years\’ of training he was finally prepared for a daunting round-the-island sail. Watch the hilarious, sorry, inspiring video below to find out, \’Is failure an option?\’

Our last video of the day features some French freestyle finesse from Bastien Rama. Filmed in Jericoacoara and Camocim, check out Bastien absolutely killing it…on his \’bad\’ tack too!
