Turfdog video and Portsmouth write up

I'm not quite sure whats going on with the forecasts right now, packed my car for a 30 knot session and its 7 knots. Rubbish! So I'm sat here instead adding light wind stuff to my blog!
First a video made by Mike Archer (Turfdog), of our light wind and no wave antics at 'Portsmouth Wave' a few weeks ago:

The second is the writeup on the SWA site of Portsmouth wave:

SWA Cardiff Event, 1st and 2nd place!

About 100 students turned up for the event at Llandegfedd reservoir in South Wales for a sunny but not very windy weekend. Typical student style the parties Friday and Saturday were massive and jumping in the 4 degree lake on Sunday morning did clear my hangover! The racing was first, out of the ladies I came 2nd and then lightwind freestyle on SUPs was next and I won! The prizes were a Severne skinny extension and a T-shirt, so pretty handy! Thanks goes to Jim at Puravida for lending me kit and the party at his bar 'Submission' in Cardiff on Saturday night, and John from Severne for the extension!
