With sporadic internet connection- supposedly its the wind -around 45-50knots for the last 2 days. Great training opportunities for the Bridglets, Eric on the new 2011 Wam & me on my new Race ltd 2011. We were posted to Tarifa really for a photoshoot!!! Young Tom Bridge is the star out here & he is getting the camara shot at him from all angles!! Today he made it out on the water with the new prototype 3mtr kite (made for him). All spanking green/white ion suits all bridglets showed the rest of the beach who ruled when it came to kiteloops. Eric was on a 6mtr kite to give you an idea of how windy it was & there is Ollie looping the hell out of the proto 5mtr vegas that Ralf has handed to him. Ralf is the designer of the evo, vegas, neo & buzz. He is a fully passionate professional guy & is on a great level with the kids. They all work with him & come back in saying stuff that is pretty cruical to his testing.

The level of riding is high & all the legends are out ripping in superb waves off Sotegrande- beach half way towards Malaga from tarifa. As I write in a bar next to our flat young Tom is in bed with a possible broken toe while Guy is sick after mum’s driving back from the beach with a stomach full of maaccie dee’s! Will see what tomorrow brings. The new race board looks wicked & am testing with Abel Lago & Jaime so this should be productive.
