Magical Moulay

A beautiful day here in sunny Grosetto, Tuscany on the RRD conference. Their has been wind kicking around all week back in the UK  and it was great to get some time out there after my 2 weeks of coaching in Moulay, Morocco. There is also some big wind forecast for the coming week which has got one and all licking their lips.

Moulay was damn fine with Lawamas being fantastic hosts and the conditions stepping up with the goods, giving us both riding and jumping pure deep joy. Week 1 went off and week 2 was a bit windless as even the most reliable places can go offline sometime, still the group charged hard on SUPs & surfboards and all saw the potential and would re book. I will do a full report on this soon.


We have 1 or 2 spaces on the June 22nd & 29th Rhodes coaching clinics and the Sept 7th clinic will sell out very soon.

The wind, warmth, waves and golden joy of both Mauritius and the Brazil combo clinic are also open for bookings too, but the spaces will sell out soon : )

After the huge success, brilliant customer feedback and great wind of 2011 Marsa Alam bookings will be taken soon for people who have pre-registered and it will go on public sale in June for March 14th and 21st 2012. 


The brand spanking new RRD wave cult contest is now in the country and in stock at 2XS so take a look and consider this fantastic all round quad fin wave board in a lighter construction.

Both Boards and Windsurf Magazines have been extolling the virtues of RRDs new FireStorm (fast freeride) boards and I got out on it for some Sarf coast testing this week. It is faster than the Fireride (classic freeride) and easier to sale than the blisteringly quick FireRace (free race) yet is comfy and gybes fantastically as our boards are well known for. I will be using it for coaching on my next clinic to Rhodes in June.

Lastly, if you wish to have an early planing board with a wide plan shape yet thin rails then look at the NEW RRD FireMove, which bridges the gap between our highly acclaimed FSW and Fireride boards, and is a Freemove board. It is great for planing early, top end speed and is super responsive for gybes and jumps, for a board of its size. It planes like a big board but sails like a smaller one for carving and popping, featuring a length of 236 and volumes of 100, 110 and 120 and corresponding widths of 69, 75 and 80 cms. I will be using the 100 as a coaching board for bump n jump, blasting, carving, old school freestyle and looping.

Enjoy spring and lets hope for more wind and waves and I look forward to seeing you on the beach or on a clinic. Thanks to those of you who have booked foe 2011, pre registered for 2012 and given me some referrals and promotion, I am really grateful for all this : )

Consider these wise words:

"You get what you ask for and what you focus on.  To change the quality of your life, change the quality of the questions you ask yourself.

What might happen if you asked yourself, 'What is possible?' Instead of 'Why me?'" - Keith J. Cunningham

Over and out from me, sail, live, love and enjoy with passion,
