‘This was put together by the legend Clive ‘El Toro’ Boden and shows footage and action from my Wavesailing coaching weeks in August 2013.

‘We were hosted by Solosports who as ever gave us the best toys, amazing food and fantastic drinks.

‘The conditions were the smallest we have had in 6 of my trips. Yet we had wind every day and action was to be had on the bombie and the inside break. I am back there from July 19th to August 9th 2014.

‘There are a few spaces left on the Aug. 2 – 9 coaching holiday so get involved by mailing me from my website jemhall.com

FROM CAPE TOWN WITH LOVE

FROM CAPE TOWN WITH LOVE

‘For many members of the Fanatic team, Cape Town/South Africa is the number one choice when it comes to to winter training destinations.

‘Beside the great windsurfing conditions this city at the very end of Africa has a lot to offer.

‘Manu Grafenauer and Mart Kuperij from Enjoy the Soup followed Cape Town veteran Klaas Voget, Max Matissek, Max Rowe and South Africa rookies Alessio Stillrich and Adrien Bosson on their adventures in and around the Mother city.

FROM CAPETOWN WITH LOVE is a fourteen-minute short film full of crazy windsurf action, laughter, bullshit and an inside view of the daily life of the pros during their stay.

Prepare for some sick windsurfing action, Waveriders switching places with their Freestyle team mates and proving how demanding the sport really is, as well as Freestylers try to push their level in the waves.

‘Great wipeouts, loads of fun and a lot of team spirit.

‘ENJOY.’

THURSO SCOTLAND

THURSO SCOTLAND

Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 14.45.27

A clip from the trip featured in our current [March] issue by 2012 U.K. Champ Jamie Hancock:

‘During the British winter we travelled up to North East Scotland in pursuit of perfection.

I’d always heard about how great Thurso is but had never been, probably with it being the furthest place I could drive to from my front door.

I travelled with Timo, Ross and JC and arriving at 5 a.m.

After the 13-hour drive, we pulled over and got 3 hours kip before a full day on the water.

I was taking it a bit easy still after breaking my leg late in the summer, so cut my sessions short and got behind the camera.

The clip is from a few cold sessions during the trip.’
