Ross is also the agent in the UK for Ga,Tabou and Vandal.

SPEED: KEVIN GREENSLADE

Kevin_Greenslade

This nominee was a tough one with two clear favourites. John Skye for getting on the podium in the ISWC speed championships was an amazing achievement. But Kevin has been a speed sailor since he could walk. Making his Dad take him to Weymouth Speed week to see his hero’s like Fred Haywood and Pascal Maka. Little did he know he would go on to win the UKWA speed championship 5 times and be the fastest at Weymouth speed week himself. Kevin is not a full time windsurfer he works full time in the Helicopter industry.

WAVE: ROBBIE SWIFT

Robbie needs no introduction, they say if you cut Robbie in half you would find WINDSURFING stamped through the middle. He has been windsurfing since he was 3, taught by his dad and named after the legend that is Robbie Naish. He has been at the top of the PWA wave rankings for many years. Despite some horrendous injuries over the years, he still fought his way back to his rightful place as one of the best wave sailors the UK has ever produced. He is nominated in 2015 for his 8th place overall in PWA wave championships and for his amazing achievement in coming back from injury.

FREESTYLE: ADAM SIMS
