With a light breeze the PWA World Tour were able to kick things off in Costa Brava yesterday. As is the way with light winds there were a few grumbles of complaint but all in all it seemed like a good days racing especially for the Israeli Arnon Dagan, who currently leads the rankings for now.
A couple videos to catch up on, first up is the registration day, just a bit of lifestyle and behind the scenes.
Second up is yesterdays action. The video shows the guys on their bigger kit, with a lot of gybing! So if you are after a gybing tutorial, this might just be what you need.
From PWA to AWT but still sticking with the low wind theme. Whilst the AWT managed to finish the Grand Masters, Ladies and Youths in the uncharacteristically light airs around Santa Cruz last weekend, the pros and other fleets were unable to finish. Nevertheless the forecast for the Pistol River Wave Bash, which is currently underway, is an absolute stormer. For now here is the round up of the Santa Cruz Festival.
So how about that Russian Rave we were banging on about in the heading. Push me, and then just touch me, until I get my, satisfaction… Satisfaction…! Let the weekend start early people! Actually despite being another Dahab video, this one is worth a watch as this fresh name to the freestyle scene is clearly rocking it. Introducing Yakovlev, our favourite new Russian Raver.
To reign it right back in and all the way back down to planet Earth, Levi dropped this self composed guitar meets windsurfing clip. Ride on.
Heading back out and into the mainstream world, looks like windsurfing hit theaters across America last night in this ‘for one night only’ style movie, which saw screenings take place in a rare one time only fashion. Nevertheless, if you missed out we are expecting the video to hit the interweb within a few short weeks.
And to wrap up for today, we love Kelly Slater. Want to surf like him, here is how. Except none of us ever will, but there is still plenty of use in this. Check out the full video here.
