Just returned early from the Tiree Wave Classic. Pretty epic 1500 mile round trip!!! It's a shame the forecast died right off and it doesn't look like there will be much to hold the rest of this double let alone try and start another single elimination. I'm hoping for my result they at least finish the first double.

On another note the first day we sailed in competition was absolutely awesome (check pics - courtesy of Pete Darkin), cross off down the line, bit float and rideish but the waves were so clean and if you got it right there were some nice ones to be had!

The day before the event was 3.7 weather which meant either smaller waves at Gott bay but more side shore or bigger waves but more on shore at Ballaphueil, we went for Gott bay to practice our riding a bit but also got some nice jumps as the waves jacked up to over head high.

Going up a week early was a good call as we got some nice conditions, some head high waves and side shore to side on conditions.

Check the SWA website soon for more updates

England No Wind

Not been much wind about lately so have been working in an office for three weeks, only missed one day of wind and managed to escape early on the other good day so not missed a whole lot really. Heading up to Tiree this weekend with SJ, forecast looks good for first three days, so hopefully some nice practice before the wave classic begins the week after.
Good forecast tomorrow so off for a cheeky one at Camber with Bubble, try and get a little bit of footage or some photos if we can, so check back before the end of the weekend.
Well done to John Skye as well out in Sylt, guess he must be pretty happy considering how hard the conditions are... obviously shows how good the RRD twinfins are...and him of course!
