So I've been back in the uk for a few weeks now and its been alot of fun! even managed to get a good amount of windsurfing in the uk done! whoop!
On the weekend of the 23 and the 24th I went down to hayling island for the fist event of the season for the freestyle! however we ended up with no wind but still had a great event with Trevor Funnel running some light wind freestyle comps and also ran a freestyle tow in!

Whilst on the beach dave white decided to get some shots with the ladies in to! ofcourse he wanted to have us all looking like pervs in the background!
On the saturday night was a good opportunity to have a bbq seen as there were so many people from vass and the uk freestyle scene!
and after a few more beers we managed to to have a itrip rave were we gotabout 5 vans tuned into the same ipod!
The hungover morning after I woke up to the sound of Max rowe laughing to bringing down very fast kite to knock over ali much to our amusement!
The following day a few of headed over to the wakeboard tow park at hove lagoon,
Were they kindly let us have a go on it with a windsurf kit and it worked really well! I managed to get a funnel on my first run, got a little cocky and tried to ponch as jamie said, being the flat water ponch perfectionist that I am! Took the nose of his board of! stupid Ric!
So i spent the next day repairing it getting it ready for him to take it to the PWA event witch was two days later hense why the blog update is a little late!
Sorry Jamie !
Brought him some beers to to make up for it as well as obviously having vasscoast customs treatment.
working on the board,
And then putting in the hours at night...,
The finished result!
Photo's of the hove tow in and maybe even a video yet to come! whoop whoop !

- 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!
