As the new year approaches windsurfers across much of the country have been treated to brilliant conditions. Despite the cold temperatures the winds have been blowing and social media is full with happy comments of windsurfers taking to the water. The forecast is looking pretty good across many spots for New Year’s Day too, so where will you be taking to the water?
Boards would love to hear about your new year sessions, and of course see some photos too; let us know where you’ve been out either in the comments below or check out the How Was It For You thread in the forum here.
Some photos we have seen are from the OTC/Puravida guys out enjoying the windy weather in Weymouth, looks like they’re getting in some early slalom training for the year ahead!
“I’m writing this as the wind is buffeting my window with gusts of over 47knots. This is the fourth windy day in a row and whilst many of the locals were ripping it up in the waves of Ringstead, Kimmeridge and Overcombe, the Harbour has played host to some awesome conditions. Kev Greenslade, Si Pettifer and Si Cofield were seen getting some training in on Friday for the start of the 2013 BSA calendar. Maybe a tandem will be entered in the Pro Fleet next year!?
And whilst a lot of the latest 2013 kit was rented in the balmy conditions yesterday, local speed don Pete Young gave Scotty ‘Dogfish’ Stallman some trade secrets, pushing his PB to 29.06knots! He is sure to break the 30knot barrier before his twelfth birthday … we’re sure not many can say that! Wishing everyone all the best for 2013. See you in the water.
