update from hype energy kitesurfer pro!
It’s been a while since I last wrote for this blog and although it’s been a hectic couple of months, I’ve had a great time. At the moment I’m in Brazil where I spend two to three months of the year training. I usually hang around Uruau which is quite near Fortaleza – the conditions are great for both training and fun sessions with great winds and a lagoon. And of course there’s a great group of kitesurfers here to keep me company throughout the day.
September was also a great month, as I spent three weeks in Hawaii working with the Cabrinha team on product development, which is a really interesting part of my work. Fitness is obviously an important part of any athlete’s training, but so is the ability to get the very most out of the equipment that you have and improve that equipment to get ever closer to perfection.
As you know the last competition saw me finish third in Fuerteventura and I really want to improve on that result in the final two events in Cina and New Caledonia. That way I’ll be able to keep my current ranking of third place for 2012 – would be a great way to finish the year off!
