Dissertation vs Windsurf

For once the weather may have just saved our student windsurfers from having to repeat their final year again. With a very much over extended winter this season, the student population have been locked in their rooms studying hard and finishing their dissertations. We’ve had word from Starboard/Tushingham team rider, Ollie Acton about the experience and how he is finally stoked to have finished so that he can hit the water again in these rather mild and windy days.

“The biggest project I’ll ever do at University is finally handed in, where for the past few months the dissertation has taken over my life.  This has meant not a great deal of windsurfing for me, I’ve only managed to get out on the water once since January and that was in the snow!  

But after all the hard work and stress from doing my dissertation I was rewarded with a really nice session at my local spot in Emsworth.   Located in Chichester Harbour, Emsworth can be perfect for flat water blasting and freestyle.  The wind was a solid 20 knots but forecast to drop so I used my 5.5 Rock and 101 Flare and had an awesome session; it was also the first time this year without gloves or a hood!  So all in all I’m pretty relieved the dissertation is finished with and I can now hopefully get on the water a lot more.”
