Check out the latest clip from Robby Swift, featuring him self and Marcilio Browne tearing up some epic waves in Chile.
Chile is one of my favourite places on earth to spend time. The country is beautiful, the people are amazingly friendly, the food is excellent and the windsurfing conditions are off the scale! I can’t wait to go back! – Robby
Pro windsurfers Jason Polakow and Robby Swift test out some new prototype Neil Pryde sails in Maui, Hawaii. The designer wasn’t too stoked when the boys took to the sky with some massive airs, destroying the sails on a heavy day at Lanes…but the heli footage definitely makes up for it! Check it out!
Robby Swift brings us this action packed wave sailing clip from Chile during November, while the PWA event should have been taking place. Scoring great conditions, big waves and Robby’s talent makes this a great clip. Fingers crossed we’ll see this stop on the tour in 2014.
The latest on Robby Swift’s injury.
After his injury in Pozo Robby Swift is back recovering in the UK after undergoing surgery and screws to hold it all together. The big question is when he will return and will he be competing today? It’s still uncertain, but with 5 hours plus of rehab a day he is working hard, here is what he had to say, “Denmark will be tight, but he said it’s not impossible so that’s what I have my sights set on!”
The Denmark event he is talking about is none other then Klitmoller World Cup which takes place in mid September. We wish Swifty a speedy recovery.
A few days ago top British wavesailor Robby Swift suffered a serious injury, while training for the upcoming PWA Pozo World Cup. The Professional windsurfers association recently caught up with Robby to find out more, here’s the interview from the PWA:
PWA: What’s the full diagnosis?
RS: “I flew back to England today and have an appointment with the specialist tomorrow morning. Broken ankle and tibia. I need an MRI to check the joint situation. Couldn’t see from the x-ray as I can’t weight bear due to pain and swelling.”
“I’m really gutted as I was more prepared this year than ever for Pozo. I really felt that I could be on the podium at the end of the event and was having so much fun sailing there last night.”
PWA: What happened exactly?
RS: “I did a 1 foot backloop and saw that I was going to crash so I tried to throw the gear away but my back foot got stuck in the strap and I fell down onto the sail with my other foot over the mast and all my body weight squashed my leg into the mast.”
“Anyway, hopefully tomorrow they will give me my prognosis and I will let you know what they say.”
Here’s to hoping Swifty recovers quickly and we see him back on the PWA World Tour soon.
Top rider Robby Swift has suffered a leg injury while training in Pozo for the upcoming PWA event. Yesterday afternoon Robby Swift broke his leg and ankle on a one footed back loop gone wrong, he is currently on his way back to the UK for surgery. With such a short circuit is will put the entire season in doubt. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the water soon.
