What we liked about it

There is plenty of very good advice in there, for example, the equipment set-up section was excellent. The ‘How to approach Waves’ section was also excellent. The variety of tips will appeal to novice wave riders right up tp proficient wave riders and beyond.

What we didn’t like

Sometimes there is too much information with Pros talking at a hundred miles an hour. You can’t quite take it all in no matter how many times you rewind! It is about sailing in Real World Waves and you get all the tips you need but alot of the action footage is from Hookipa & Pozo which would suggest that these Pros don’t know what real world sailing is! There is a bit of indoor action from London – perhaps they think that’s what windsurfing is in Northern Europe!!

Chick action .v. Bloke action

If you like Anne Marie Reichmann, you’re in luck! We particularly enjoyed the opening bikini beach scenes.

Best tip

Robby Naish telling you to put your back foot in the footstrap when trying to get over white water off the plane, thus lowering your centre of gravity and securing you to the board – sweet!

What is missing?

Not a lot of real, real world sailing (very cross onshore, choppy, knee to waist high waves).

Extras

Yes, a bonus section including a useful Equipment Guide, Self-Rescue, Carrying Gear and chats with Board & Sail designers.

Music

The music was fine, it did the job.

Cost $29.95 or 29 euros + p&p. They send worldwide.
