After spending almost a year on a boat exploring the coast of Brazil Kauli Seadi (BRA-253) returned to Hawaii in November. He again was blessed with typically great conditions at Sprecks and Ho’okipa.
Check it out the first of his new video clips…
MacG productions hooked up with the danish up and coming freestyle windsurfer Rasmus Oeagelund in South Africa and filmed some of his winter training. Rasmus has a big passion for windsurfing and together with his great personality, attitude and style in his moves he will go far!
Fabian Weber and a crew of German friends in South Africa for some Wavesailing.
Since a few years a small group of friends around Fabi Weber travels down to South Africa to have fun on and off the water…
The weather was generally a bit different than the last few years. The evenings were usually quite fresh – so we have had to wear a sweater and sometimes a light jacket over it. Only the last two days we sat topless at night on the terrace. The South-Easter was only tow times really good that we could rig 4.2 and smaller. I think I was riding 80% on 4.6qm. The wind was mostly very offshore, even in spots which are normaly sideshore. Whitsands extremely gusty. We were one time at the Cape .. But three times in Elandsbai … Global warming? Maybe, maybe not! It was just different … Since we all had our SUPs with us, we were not sad and got some good swells. I think we all got our money. Oh, and the extremely low price RAND has made the trip quite cheap!
On January 24th 2014, winds reached over 50 knots in the gusts, and larger then normal waves came into El Cabezo beach in El Medano, and only few riders hit the water. Alex Mussolini was one of them, using his smallest 3.3 sail, proved that he deserved to finish 2nd in the PWA tour last year, showing his amazing timed wave360s, goiters and huge jumps.
“We got some epic conditions here in Tenerife, the best I’ve seen since I moved to the island 6 years ago” – Alex Mussolini
Enjoy the awesome action!
No doubt Kevin Pritchard has almost as much much talent for video shooting as he does on a wave. In this short clip you can see the lines he takes on similar waves to Jason Polakow and Marcilio Browne, pretty cool!
I have been really wanting to get better at windsurfing. When your level is high, to me it seems like it is harder and harder to get better. Every millimeter, every little tiny, grip of the toes, where you put your hands, where you are looking matters.
I saw some of the overlay comparisons watching Resi at the Olympics. While it is nothing new, I thought that would be pretty cool to try and look at what is going on and what is happening where. On a wave it is very different because each wave is so different. The location of where and when you are bottom turning is totally different.
I figured I would share the overlay as some of you guys might find it interesting maybe?
To me, it looks like I have most of the fundamentals down. It is just about putting more energy and speed into the turn. Brawzino gets to his second turn quicker than I do with speed and power. Jason had a bit of a squirt of speed right on the bottom turn to get up the wave.
