Lets Get Retro: Tiree Wave Classic 1987, 1994 and 1995

Boards has officially been around for 30 years; founded in late 1982 the magazine has been there for many incredible moments through windsurfing history.

Now we will look back at some classic features and  incredible retro footage from the 80s, 90s and noughties. First up, Dave White shared this awesome footage to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Tiree Wave Classic last year, but we just couldn’t resist sharing it again!

Check out Duncan Coombs (BWA and PWA head judge!) and co in action way back at the 1987 Tiree Wave Classic – plus Nils Larsen, Stu Holland, Nigel Howell, Nik Baker, Corky Kirkham and many more in 1994 – plus yet more action in video the first video from 1995!

    Hi Niels,

    this is Joerg from Germany. My wife Silke and I met you in the early 90's in Cornwall and Guincho. We do a little bit of Mountain biking and of course windsurfing together. I bought a whole quiver of Gwithian Wave Sails from you (i still have them, but not in use:-))

    Hope you remember and it will be nice to hear from you.

    Greetings to Zoe and your son Casper.

    Hi Neil

    Thank you for the nice words, great to know that you were pleased with the board.

    Sorry about the potato sandwich, we must have been out of salted herrings !

    Oh yes, we're still sailing, but the boards have been replaced by a 32 foot sailboat.

    All the best,

    Niels & Zoe

    Great to see Nils Larsen in action. He made my first Magic Touch 260 which really ignited my passion for windsurfing. He offered me a traditional Danish sandwich the first time I met him. I didn't know at the time but it was slices of boiled potato in between dark rye bread… no butter… man, that was a hard sarnie to swallow! What a legend! And what great boards he made in the day! Really curious to know if he's still sailing.
