Career

HIGHLIGHTS OF MY CAREER
  • Winning British Wavesailing and Triple Crown Championship Titles in 2002 to 2003 just before I left the UK. Well over a decade worth of doing travel articles for the magazines, covering the four corners of the windsurfing map as well as running and coaching successful Windsurfing Holiday Clinics in almost every windsurfing destination around the globe. I'm now running Aloha Windsurfing Clinics out of Maui year round. Super fun and a perfect destination for improving windsurfing skills.
