I´ve put together this short video of one of the days at Majanicho earlier this month. I apologise in advance for the fact that it´s another "gopro" movie- the plan was to mix it up with some "proper" footage shot from the beach, but it has proven impossible to get any footage as nobody wants to stand on the beach and film when it´s working there! Anyway, I was left with these gopro clips and it seemed such a shame to waste them or let them get old, so I stuck them together in a short vid.
With all the current debate about quads, twins and singles etc. you may be interested to know that this day I was on my Fanatic Skate 100, a dedicated freestyle board with a 17cm freestyle fin in it. Totally not designed for shredding waves, but it just goes to show that you can´t blame everything on the "wrong" board. In fact, speed is such a crucial element in waveriding (as in so many other areas of our sport), that on a lightish wind day such as this one was, it´s often better to have a real fast board which maybe doesn´t turn as well, and I have always wholeheartedly extolled the versatility of "freestyle" boards. Everyone should have one in the van. Anyway, enough of that. The video also proved useful as an analytical tool on a recent clinic where we watched it to teach hand movements on the boom while waveriding with a great degree of success! Regular readers of the blog may also note that, due to the semi-arctic conditions at the minute (23 degrees and sunshine, ahem) I have been forced to don my full winter suit... on that note, here´s the video.
