Around the World for a fiver

Post by Brian D » Wed Jan 26, 2005 16:33

Went to Windy World, this week and as well as coming back with some new kit :D and a hole in the bank balance :cry: . Richard also asked me to inform eveyone of a forth-coming event organised by Starboard / Tushingham via Windy world
The advertising flyer reads as follows:-



Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sail, or even simply visit the World’s best windsurfing locations? Here is just the ticket. Prior to the start of his 2005 PWA World travels John Hibbard has been invited by a number of shops to run an ‘indoor session’ with a difference. John is getting together shots from his travels to every continent, and he will do his best to take you to the beaches we read about every month, and the beaches we may dream about. There will be tales from the breaks and from the beach. Find out what it’s really like to be invited on; a fashion shoot in Mexico with four of the highest paid models, or a Starboard brochure shoot when the wind doesn’t blow.

The evening adventure will take you from Australia to Tiree, Canaries to Vietnam, Cape Town to Canning Town (that’s the indoor at London!), and plenty more.

After the expedition John will be giving a few tips on windsurfing techniques, and advice on choosing the best board for your style of sailing, considering the vast choice of boards around. There will also be a quiz with plenty of prizes. So get out the shades and ‘factor 15’, give one of the shops a call and book a ticket for this sightseeing tour.

Those who go - enjoy!

I can't make it - will be in Germany for the week.
It's an ill wind that never blows at all.
