Here at Boards, we’ll follow the progress of the Brits through the event, first here’s a pre-event catch up with Adam Sims.
“I’m actually a little apprehensive about competing, I want to do well and show to myself that I can actually pull it together in competition.
“I don’t really care about showing it to anyone else, I just want to prove that I can do it for me. I feel my level is up there when I’m freesailing but I’ve had a lot of bad luck in the past when competing, that hasn’t changed too much as I’m still going into this event with a broken finger… Anyway I’m not nervous, just apprehensive, I want it to start already
“I’m really happy with my gear setup, I’m finding the spot a bit tricky for getting speed in switch coming in, but I’m happy to hold on to some powerful Sailloft Quads and the all new Patrik Freestyle board. I’ve been training a lot with Oscar Carmichael and Alex Mitchell out here for the last month.
“Exact quiver: 4.0, 4.4, 4.8, 5.2, 5.6 and the 93 and 101l Patrik Freestyle.”
