Hi all,

Those are not the pics I meant to upload. I’m pretty sure they’re Jamie Hancock, John John Florence and Brawzinho. Not me!!!

Hawaii - Spreckles 2019. Taken by Kevin Pritchard when I was lucky enough to be on the Pritchards' Wave Course. Great waves, blue skies, warm water... just a shame my technique is still so shite!!

This is a spot in South of Spain, just a bit of photoshop. The one on the right is me, though

Not easy to choose, but I like this GIF. I think it is representative. It's a small wave, which is what I sail the most. And it is one of my signature turns - a tight top turn carve in the pocket. I reckon it is kind of signature to my style of turning because as top turns go, this is a rather front footed turn with almost no back foot push. Alos note how tight it is and how far up the wave I end the turn and how much bord rail that is in use. These are things that can be done on the type of signature shapes I prefer to ride myself but would be rather hard on many other boards. You need a lot of curve packed in a small pace to pull it off with confidence. So the gif kind sum up a kay aspect of my sailing style as well as my shaping.

You have the click the pic so see the gif, it seems

On the other hand, this is a pretty nice pic too since big waves are always big waves, after all
