It made me sad too read John Kenny the Irish Recordholder (WSSRC) has passed away last week. R.I.P. An 2009 news story on the starboard site about John and his records: http://www.star-board.com/2009/pages/news/testresults.php?readmore=485.
Also I read Barry van Lingen a fast dutch GPS speeder crashed REALLY hard in la Franqui, broke 4 ribs + all equipment busted (including GPS died). I hope you heal quickly Barry, it does sound like a lot of pain! Crash was caused by a spin-out, he had his crashvest on, damn this could happen every speedsurfer :(
My surfsession today
Also fair to mention the 15 other times when I ended at the backside of the breaker and losing good windflow+ finpressure. Definitly important to have the right path! Now 16% of all my runs with succes from using waves, it is a good point to start ;). In the end I was going a bit too fast for the waves (running out of white water quickly), I like too see progress.
GPS-speedsurfing definitly different than what I did today. Good to be aware of the differences!?!
