A warm winter hello to you all,
I hope you are all wrapped up warm and thinking positively about the longer days and the onset of spring even if it is waay too cold right now. Now I know I have zero sympathy from many of you, as my unaccustomed skinny little legs rattle together in these freezing temps, due to having only just returned from Cape Town and its warmer weather but please do read on : )
First up I am happy to introduce my NEW Technique series, on the updated Boards Mag website, and entitled 'The Moves that Matter.' Please follow this series and forward / share it with as many people as we can so that everyone can get ripping and Jemetically Modified.
Not only has Antoine Albeau joined RRD International but he was also available last week on Tuesday at 11.30am for a live chat on the Boards website so please get involved.
RRD are also proud to announce that the legend Dave White has joined Seasprite sports to help promote and sell all our fine toys, check out his movie and thoughts about this right here
Next bit of news for you is that after the resounding success of my Brazil Combo clinic in 2011 we have just released the prices and details for 2012. If you would like an appetizer then check out the video we made. Get your bookings in soon as a majority of last years crew will be rebooking AND we have an early bird (booking) discount till Feb 29th!
You know I like to say this but if you snooze you lose and so if you want in for a Prasonisi Performance Boost in Rhodes this June then please book soon as all weeks are selling out ...
Cape Town was fab, hard sailing and plenty of it and an opportunity for me to train, test and enjoy some time out. It was great to do comprehensive testing with John Skye, team mate and top chum, on some of our potential RRD joy toys and educate our new man Dave White on the comprehensive and current RRD goodness.
Sorry about the lack of action pics but it was not that sort of trip and thanks to Whitey for the pics and to Debbie Kennedy for the 'cheesy' sunset pic.
Windsurfing is always a very small world and it was great to see my old test team boss and mate, Ian Leonard, out in Cape Town and to enjoy some good sailing with him, the odd beer and experience his fine tennis coaching too.
Feb and early March see me rooted to my desk as I look to get some much needed office work done and to entice you fine people to book some clinics as well. I hope to see you on the water for a windsurf, when it warms up, and maybe on the south coast for a SUP when the swell comes in. The next trip for me is Marsa Alam, Egypt in March which, I believe, is now full -I offer a HUGE HUGE THANKS for booking.
In the meantime Spring is on the way and the 3 Fs will see you through the next season with both enjoyment and progression. Therefore, up your FITNESS, review and visualise what to FOCUS on and when you get in the water ensure your FUNDAMENTALS are ripping.
Focus, believe and ENJOY,
