Tues 18th – NZ Nationals, ASP champ, Jem Hall, BWA on Sky, Jacopa flying, Rydberg and more…

So a quiet one on the news front this afternoon, however this little video cropped up. Yes it is from towards the start of this year but we haven’t seen it before and it has two quite cool things about it, the first is that it is all filmed from an iPhone, the second is that there are quite a few cool timelapses and high speed wide shots which we don’t often see. So check out the highlights of the NZ Nationals back in February.

For that little extra something we head over to the Billabong Pipe Masters, the final stop of the Vans Triple Crown tour and the location where Joel Parkinson became the new Surfing ASP World Champion, just pipping Kelly Slater to the post.


Kicking off this morning we have the one and only Jem Hall who has been in touch about some last minute coaching clinics, perhaps a great Christmas present idea…

The Jem Hall Marvellous Marsa Alam coaching clinics are currently selling like hot cakes with the week of March 20 – 27th about to sell out and only a few places left on March 13 – 20th. Book up now for a great holiday and spring time windsurf tune up : )
Moving on to windsurfing that’s hitting our TV screens. The BWA have let us know that the first showings of the Tiree Wave Classic 2012 TV Feature with BWA Tour Highlights and interviews will be on Watersports World at the following times, so set your sky box to record:
02/01/13    24:00-01:00     Sky Sports 4
02/01/13    05:00-06:00     Sky Sports 4
The first video of the day comes from Markus Rydberg, part of the duo behind MacG Productions, he and Gustav Haggstrom are often seen tearing up their local spots and producing some nice videos to go with it. Well Rydberg has been in touch to let us know of his new facebook page where much of his work will be posted first, so head on over and hit the LIKE button if you want in. Not sure what Rydberg is all about, well watch one of his latest clips we published about a month ago.
Something a little more recent now in terms of web clips. It’s another one from the French and how is that for a motivational girlfriend, certainly a win for him.
Spotted over on continentseven was this next clip, land windsurfing portrayed in one of its finest videos yet. We like the powerful style thrown down in these moves.

Also spotted on C7 was this!!! A move that has been spreading across social media like lightning, Jacopa Testa performs the best freestyle windsurfing move we’ve seen in a long time, a full on air Kabikuchi!

Finally, the inaugural RS:One World Championship in Boracay, Philippines wrapped up on Saturday following five thrilling days of action. Three world champions were decided on the final day. The 2012 Olympic Gold medalist, Marina Alabau from Spain won the women’s division, Philippines’ Geylord Coveta took the men’s and Chun Ting Lee from Hong Kong won the Espoir men’s title.
