Dan Sweeney: My First Windsurfing Competition
"Last week I competed in my first Windsurfing competition at the 2nd round of the UK Slalom championships. - I went along to support the RRD UK Crew and also to compete in the Blast event to see where my level was at. I spent a few months windsurfing before with Ant and Nik Baker but I managed to get some Windsurfing in under my belt while in St.Lucia with 2Elements RRD Centre over the winter.
We completed 20 races over Saturday and I'm stoked with my result. I won every race.!
Next stop is BSA Worthing (My home spot) -Now I'm going to get some training in, Take my windsurfing more seriously alongside my Kitesurfing and I now have my own equipment - I'm going to compete in the Am Men and then I'm off to Norfolk for the 2nd round of the UK Pro Freestyle Kite event where I'll be fighting for the UK Tittle.
Big thanks to my sponsors for supporting me! RRD, ION, K-66 & Baker Academy - Lets see what happens this year on both tours!."
