Klitmoller goes off

Today we head off to Sylt after an epic stay here in Klitmoller. The
contest was obviously a huge success, but it didn't stop there. The
wind blew straight for 9 days solid, peaking with a couple of 3.7
days. We had waves the whole time and around the corner in Hansholm we
had side shore conditions and some of the best jumping ever. I am
absolutely exhausted having 2 or 3 sessions everyday, but it was so
much fun. Thanks to Oliver for the photos.

SKYEBOY 9th in the double

Today we ran the double elimination and I unfortunately had to go
against an on fire Victor Fernandez. I had a really nice heat, but he
landed a perfect double and in the end that made the difference. It
was super close though with him winning by about 1 point on each
judge, so I was pretty happy with my performance. Victor then went on
all the way to the final, eventually finishing 2nd. So that leaves me
9th for this event and 11th overall for the year. Sylt next week,
which is always a good event for me, so hopefully I can repeat a good
performance there. Right now though it looks like we should have a
couple of really good days here, so should be sick.

Kia Cold Hawaii Denmark: Skyeboy 5th in the single

RRD Windsurfing Wave team is pretty busy those days, attending the first PWA event ever held in Denmark on legendary spot Klitmoller.

RRD Team Captain John Skye scored a good 5th place in the single Elimination, while local Guru Kenneth Denielsen was stopped in the second round, as well as German ripper Lars Gobish and our french wave maestro Yann Sorlut.

Florian Jung, Wout Burman and our Demark distributor Mikkel Asmussen were out in the first round, and already waiting to play their second chance in the double elimination.

Here the words from RRD Top rider Skyeboy:

"Today we ran the single elimination in Klitmoller. Conditions were pretty good, with the occasional logo set coming though. In the morning the wind was light for a 5.8, but by the afternoon it was
enough for a 4.9 and then it was really fun. I had a pretty good day, advancing through to 5th and eventually losing to Kevin Pritchard. I had some good heats, but against KP I got stuck a bit too far downwind and struggled to end to the best spot for the riding. Still I am pretty happy and tomorrow it looks like we should have the double elimination in even better conditions, so looking forward to that. We have live video, so check out the to watch the action live. Congratulations to Kauli for winning today and to Ricardo for making his first final in the waves. Lets see what happens tomorrow. "

Skyeboy New Toys

Just picked up all my new toys and they look SICK! I am like a kid at
Christmas! I have all 3 of the new Wave Cults, 92, 83 and 75. I think
those will be my main boards for the UK, Canaries and all the comps.
Then I also have the 84 and 76 Hardcore Wave Cult, which are the more
rockered pure riding boards. These will be the weapons for those rare
proper riding days, like Maui or Cape Verde. My new Super Style
MkIII's look sweet too. Bit more power than last years, which I prefer
for all conditions, onshore and side shore. Plus I finally have the
SUP that I have been waiting 6 months for. Its the 9'6 Diamond tail
Ltd edition. It looks beautiful, and I already rode it in Maui so I
know it works as good as it looks! Now all I need is some wind, or
waves... or both!
