My windsurfing is at intermediate level, but perhaps I am being hard on myself there as I can hold my own against a lot of other average ability windsurfers. In terms of speedsurfing I am a complete novice but I am very committed and willing to learn. I did my first uphaul about 6 years ago, with only a few sessions per year for the first 3, then the bug really bit and in the past 3 years I have been on the water about about 250times, sometimes for the whole day so my progress has been quite good recently. My PB’s include a 35knot 2 sec, a 25.9knot NM, and a 201km distance session, all done this year and all hopefully broken by the end of this year.
Both on this website and mine we can publish these amazing stories and each one will inspire and help others to achieve their goals in the sport. I see this website as a lot more technical than mine, probably due to Eriks better abilities on the water and his dedication in sharing tips about how to do it. My website will report on great sessions, and general news from around the world. This is a small but growing community and I have no intention of copying other peoples work, I want to work with all of the established media and add a little of my eccentricity.
I hope you enjoy reading the articles I will add to both this site and my own and wish you all good speeds and winds.
