After being off the market for a while, it’s back again! The Neilpryde RS Slalom MK6. I’m really happy with this news since there was no real replacement for this wonderful sail. Currently I own several RS Slaloms and was hoping for it to return because I’m looking to upgrade. Hope I can test it somewhere so I can make my own pictures and I can write up a review. What do you think? Would you buy it?
I found these pics online. If you know who I made them, please contact me.

Dutch windsurfer Davy Scheffers is going to help you improve your windsurfing skills. He will teach you new moves or help you improve your current tricks. The clinics are for both starters in freestyle and advanced freestylers. See the flyer for more info. You can sign up over here.
If you have any doubt about Davy’s skills, than you should check out this video. Even in the slow motion it’s hard to track what’s really happening.
Fanatic released an action packed promotional DVD. Featuring some of the best windsurfers in the world, namely: Victor Fernandez, Gollito Estredo, Klaas Voget, Nayra Alonso, Peter Volwater, Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, Laure Treboux, Yoli de Brendt, Nik Baker, Craig Gertenbach, Sebastian Wenzel.
The video also features lots of wave sailing action. So if you into that it’s certainly worth your time. If you are a racer….well, then you may be disappointed. Not a lot of footage on that discipline.
What is the best part? In my opinion the best part is the section shot at Peahi/Jaws, starting at 21:28. I would be so intimidating to look up the face of such a big wave.
Don’t forget to crank up the quality on youtube. It’s available in HD 720 and 1080.
You probably have had it. Your favorite windsurf boom start to lose its grip. Especially with booms that are really durable. Simply because you can use them a longer and therefore you use them more intensely. I’ve had my last Neilpryde carbon boom for at least 5 years before I broke it and the grip was loosening on multiple places. Tim Hemer wrote an excellent guide on how to repair your boom. That way you can still enjoy your boom for many years to come. Go check it out.
Windsurfer international magazine released its 26th issue. The piece of content I recommend you to check out is the Starboard movie. This video shows all the top riders from the 2012 Starboard team rippin’ on the most beautiful spots. You can compare it a bit to the Mistral Committed Reloaded movie. That movie was more focused on showing the new talented windsurfers. The starboard movie is more about showing the wide range of windsurfing boards Starboard produces.
The Miss Reef 2012 election is around the corner. The organization of this exiting contest is looking for gorgeous girls, therefore they need your help with finding a potential new Miss Reef. Do you know someone? Ask her to sign up ;-).
