This coming weekend sees the UKWA Freestyle Tour finish with it’s premier event at the Animal Poole Windfest on Sandbanks Seafront.
On the tour this year we have been watching the development of some fine up and coming freestyle talent like Adam Simms, Will Rogers, Al Bentley and the impressive 14 year old, Oscar Carmichael.
Now comes their long awaited chance to take on the established names like Andy “Bubble” Chambers, Max Rowe, Colin “Whippy Dixon” and Ollie Scott who have just returned from their summer training in Vass.
With the wind forecast looking good for both Saturday and Sunday the action on the water should be fast, furious and exciting for spectators to watch. If you are there on Friday the stars will no doubt also be out tuning kit and practicing their moves ready for the weekend contest.
The Head Judge for this event is the legendary Duncan Coombes and depending on wind direction and conditions he will start competition around 11.00 am on both days, either straight off Sandbanks beach or in Poole Harbour.
More information on the event can be found on the UKWA website, www.ukwindsurfing.com and will be displayed daily on the event noticeboard.
Animal are as always the major sponsor of this event and will be generously providing cash prizes for the pro’s and product prizes for all other fleets.
