Bornhoft’s UK tour kicks off in Southend…
“Directly after returning from a stunning couple of great weeks windsurfing in Alacati, we kicked off our UK TOUR at Chalkwell Beach, Southend-on-Sea.
“With a fabulous F4-5 we had a really windy ‘summer’ day on the water. Covering everything from blasting stance, control, early planing, gybing, clew first beach starts, flat water wave riding and jumping, we spent every possible hour on the water. Some in the group did really well just to cope with the strong wind conditions and the more experienced sailors put in some great performances. So from the likes of Lucy, Rob, Alex, & Steve getting to grips with blasting and harnessing, Hakan, Dave, Ted, Simon, Keith gybing, flat water wave riding and going for jumps, plus James Siddalls who has come right through the Windwise ranks and now add’s upwind, 360′s, Push Tacks, neat helitacks, jumps, planing gybes, Vulcans and Spocks into his routine!
“So great work every one and I’ll be seeing some of you soon on future UK and overseas courses.
