There are always great images making their way around the windsurfing world, from the classic Ho’okipa shot to another pro exploring a never before seen island. However, there’s a whole world of other photos that you may not have seen. From the funny or edgy shots, to the just plain wrong, Boards brings you our pick of the slightly ‘different’ photos from the week.
Windsurfers will do anything for a little bit of popularity; Ben Proffitt started the trend with a pretty funny pic of him showing girlfriend Justyna Sniady what happens when you don’t like his new Facebook page.
This was followed up by freestyler Adam Sims getting a little fruity and looking for some love for his page; note the closed eyes! Is this so bad it’s good? We’re yet to decide, what do you think?
Jules Denel is planning to take a trip across the channel, from Wissant to Folkestone, AT NIGHT. We’re not too sure if that’s a good idea Jules? And by his confused look in this pic, we don’t think he’s too sure either!
The beautiful and talented Maria Andres has shared a slightly different, and we would say pretty eye catching pic this week. Does this make it into one of your favourites?
Speaking of windsurfing ladies, here’s another of our favourites courtesy of chief Butterfly Tatiana Howard. Sneaky trip to Maui anyone? And finally, you think it’s hard being a professional windsurfer? We think this pic tells a different story: ‘taking it easy between heats‘ seems a bit more like it!
