About Me

My photo
After spending my teenage years racing, i've changed discipline to freestyle as theres so much more to learn and a good way to always keep pushing myself forwards. I also work for club vass in the summer seasons, teaching anything from beginner to advanced.I then travel through the winter months to places such as Dahab and Brazil for some training! I always try and have a 12 month summer! However I always end up slightly skint so end up returning to the uk for a couple of months to earn for a while. Just before last christmas, I went to Dahab,Vassilki,Brazil,and Dahab again! So as i have just returned from Vassilki,where i was working there for 6 months, im now getting ready to head to Dahab to work for the winter months...Happy days!

New Board! and every one, I mean everyone is here!

Woooooo ! Got my new board, Skate 90 011 team edition! Looks super sweet with graphics matching my sails! Happy days!

We've had a tough couple of weeks here in dahab with only a couple of days planning, lots of looking at mirror flat water and lots of volley ball!
And constantly hearing updates from brazil from Mr Rowe and updates from people in the uk telling us how windy it is makes it a bit harder,but our turn will come around soon! Hopefully!

On the bright side! Seems like every one from the UK and Vass are here!
Bubble has arrived with Philly, Jamie Gibbs has arrived with Muzza and George doing photo's for the new Tushys with Si Crower and Jay Haysey, even Mr Tushingham himself is here!
Ellie Hooper and Ellie Ross are also in Dahab.
Never met him before but I had heard alot about him, Jonny Freshwater is here with a team of scottish which Im sure is going to be a lot of fun!
Guy cribb is here too doing one of his clinic's.
So Yeah a lot of familiar faces and a lot of new faces for me, so super keen to get to know everyone!

Also if thats not enough people theres a team of friends and flying fish from Vassiliki here too plus all the guys that work here and along the beach, so mix all this together and throw a saturday night party at the club for the customers and the result, well, Sat here with a horrific hang over ramberling on about who is here haha.

There was a few nice posh camera floating around at the party so Im sure that there will be some good photo's coming soon!

For now I've just uploaded a few of photo's of the new board and a photo of me and seb from maybe the only windy day of the past week in baby bay!

So I admit I've not been very good with my blog so far, partly because I forgot the password, standard, but mostly because I've been in vassiliki where its nonstop fun fun fun and the last thing I want to do on my day of is sit on my lap top!

We had a great season in vassiliki with over 120 customer's a week through-out peak season and around 50 a week in and out of season!

Alot goes on throughout a week in vassiliki, starting on monday with meeting our groups for the week and a welcome meal/ drinks in the evening.
Tuesday is a windsurf night where we put on som
e promo's of ourselves windsurfing and other spots around the world/ sister centre's. After that its a big night out in town starting with the wildwind bbq with live music by some of the lads that work there!
Wednesday is another teaching day as is every week day with a nice chilled out evening, normally there would be a movie on the big screen at the club the the clients and a curry or a chilli!
Thursday again normal teaching day with wildwind
's cocktails in the evening witch are usually made with something as strong as rocket fuel! generally speaking leading to another good night in town!
Friday is RACEDAYYYY!!!! WOOO YEAA, love raceday. Raceday is some friendly racing we run after our morning teaching session's, 3 back to ba
ck small races for all abilities beginner to advanced with a mystery race been the 3rd one.
Friday evening is the CLUB VASS BBQ!! biggest evening of week starting with the punch bar at 8.30 where to keep it simple everyone gets smashed for free for 45 minutes before sitting down to eat the bbq usually resulting in a crazy night!
every week its a different fancy dress witch usually relates to the club vass entertainment that we do after the bbq. entertainment generally speaking is adult orientated and can vary from a song to a dance to a gang battle! what ever goes really! Then a big party into the early hours afterwards.

At the weekend there's no lessons however clients can still windsurf as much as they want and half the beech team will take alternative days of. saturday night been another night in town.

I became a advanced/plus/bump and jump instructor in the season as well witch im very happy about. since then I've been teaching advanced groups with collin 'whippy' dixon and jay haysey witch is always a dillight.

At vass this year we were lucky enough to have Jay Haysey from globalshots taking photo's of us and I collected some good shots. We also did a night session after at few beers at the wildwind bbq on a tuesday, it was about 12pm when full power 4.7 weather came through and could of even been on 4.2 at times. we had a truck on the beach with music and its headlights on and a crowd of about 25 on the beech cheering us on which created a great atmosphere!

Dahab is blowing!

So since Tuesday we've had full power winds with today been a little bit lighter and the for cast is is sticking around!

I've mostly been using my 4.2 ICE and 90 skate but as today was lighter so I went on my new 5.3 ICE and the 100 litre skate, THIS BOARD IS AMAZING! I love the 90 however this board was so fast for 100 litres but yet very forgiving and easy to do any trick on! 

Here's a few shaka photos that sarah gaskell took yesterday on my 4.2 and 90 litre, plus a good shaka slam photo!

After 5 weeks in England, commuting to Liverpool hour and a half each way, from cheshire, doing slave labour on a building site I've managed to pay of all my debts from brazil,kit and family etc I've made it sunny Dahab with the boys.
Max and Ed have found a really pimp palace for us to live in, lounge, 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom, plus its surrounded by its own walls so its nice n secure.
It's also just in the middle of town so its perfect spot to ! Cash back!

The wind isn't amazing but it's a lot nicer than spending my time carrying bricks on the site!
I've have about 5 sick sessions in the past two weeks in witch we did a russian freestyle comp witch was a lot of fun and meet some cool people! Here's some photo's from the comp also a write up from Max Rowe!

Brazil,After working for 6 months in Vass, we treated ourselves to a 2 month trip to Jeri in brazil.
There was a huge crowd of us that headed out! Me, max, ed, jay, ollie, collin, barnaby, vivi, oscar and moll

We could all tell that it was goi
ng to be a sick trip we decided to splash out on a pimp
Collin and ollie had been last year so they already knew the owner who hooked us with a good deal and was a friend not a host. ledgend.

Out of the two months I was there  was on my 4.2 nearly everyday! i think I only went on my 4.7 once or twice and was regretting not been on my 4.2
 for sure! Happy days!

check out some photo's from general life in jeri, and some action shots!
