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!

West Wittering UKWA

UKWA West Witterings! So On the 22nd and 23rd of September many Freestylers from across the UK meet up at West Witterings to freestyle on a famous freestyle spot called the 'Trench', Glass flat and windy! Day one and we had not too much wind so out came the jet ski again and the freestyle began, we had the trench for short while but as the tide came in it soon went and we were left with The tough conditions. There was about 8-10 knots and choppy messy sea, It was a challenge to just get towed let alone do a move, I manged to hold on for my first run and foolishly went for a one handed air funnel instead of playing it safely and crashed hard. My 2nd run went badly as I tripped my rail when I was getting towed and ate it pretty hard!
Day 2 and the forcast was much much better! It started light and we were beginning to wonder if it was going to happen or not then before we knew it we had all changed down twice and ended up on our 4.2 and 4.7's. The tide came up and we ended up sailing in wavy conditions, hitting ramps on broad reach was just amazing, big ponches,big shaka's! and I went though both my heats! leading me into the Mens Final against Bubble,Max and Oscar! Just before the final heat started the wind dropped and we all got equal First!
