How did you get involved in windsurfing?
I have been windsurfing for just under two years now. I got into it after getting a job in the restaurant at Club Vass. A combination of epic hours, lots of wind and tips from some of the best instructors in the world meant I could progress quickly.
Where are you now?
I am now an intermediate planing instructor and getting ready for another season!
What have you been up too this winter?
I have been out in Dahab since October, gaining more teaching experience and improving my personal sailing. Itís been greatÖsunny and windy all winter, happy days!!
Yes! I have just got my first sponsor, Drift Innovation. They are a company that make extreme sports based action cameras, similar to GoPro, however they are more user friendly. The newest model, the Drift Ghost HD is the one I use, and it is epic!
They are waterproof so you donít need to worry about water housingís, they also have a small LCD screen on them which allows you to change settings and view your last recording or photo whilst on the water!!
You can check out all the info on the Drift camera here, and with Tech Trial you can even try before you buy!

What are your plans for the future?
Iím heading back to Vass this summer, so will be pushing to get my advanced teaching qualification. Iím planning a trip out to Brazil in October for six weeks which, hopefully, will be where I can really improve my personal sailing.
Also now that Iím working with Drift Innovation, I want to use my new camera equipment to teach with. The simplicity and versatility of the Drift Ghost HD will allow me to get great angles and footage of my students windsurfing, giving them the opportunity to view and analyse their sessions throughout the week.
