Best of 2018-2019 Video

Check out all the action from 2018 and 2019. It took me so long to put this edit together. A mix of lots of work and a young family, means time is not so easily found now! It has footage from Cape Town, Canaries and a few shots from Andorra to mix it up. Wave riding, jumping, slalom, wind foiling, sup foiling and skiing... A proper mega mix.

Best of 2017 Video

Check out all the action from 2017. A lot of the best footage is from Maui where we shot the 2018 RRD collection from Hawaii. Plus a few additional clips from Canaries. This was the first year of the Compact Wave, so this was the final testing in Maui and Pozo.

Best of 2016 Video

Not a very original title, but this is the best of 2016. Action from South Africa in the January 2016 shooting for RRD, plus some big wave riding from the PWA Aloha Classic contest in November 2016. Some of the biggest Hookipa I have ever sailed.

Best of 2015 Video

This edit has taken about a year to finish. Mainly lack of time, but also the standard of videos now has gone crazy and I was never quite happy with mine after seeing some of the beautifully put together clips from other guys. So finally here it is. No cool title, no subplot story line. Just some shots of me enjoying windsurfing around the world.

Pozo 2015

Pozo 2015 is done and dusted and pretty happy to see the back of it to be honest. I was pretty fired up to do well and had been sailing and training in Pozo more this year than ever. However things just didn't go to plan. Last year things went my way and fell into place, but this year it felt like the opposite. I sailed pretty good I think, but at key moments things went the wrong way. I ended up a pretty disappointing 17th place, so not the best start to the year, but a long way to go from here. Next stop Fuerte and then a quick jump across to Tenerife.

3rd Place European Speed Championships

I just got back from a fantastic week in Fuerteventura at the Dunkerbeck GPS Speed Challenge. I had no idea what to expect, so I was very happy (and a little surprised) to finish 3rd for the event. I mainly went there to test the Firewing sails and also to learn a bit about the world of speed sailing. In the end the conditions were on the light side, so I didn't get much time on the speed boards and most of my good runs were with the X-Fire 90, but it was still great to see the Firewing performing so well and great to see the results of all the work we put into it. Next stop for me is the Pozo PWA wave event starting next Sunday. Need to change the chip and get focused.

I like natures natural podium of heights!

A windy week in Gran Canaria

I finally got around to finishing my edit from the great conditions we had here in Gran Canaria. At the end of February we had probably one of the best 2 weeks I ever had. I used 3.7 more than any other sail! A light wind day was when I could sail on the 4.0. However the best part were the waves, with without a doubt the best riding conditions I have ever had here. This is a few clips from around the island over the last couple of months.
