Equipment used

For Speed I use Mistral Speed & Slalom Boards

Mistral Speed boards 2013

 


38 Custom
: For that BIG day!
41 Production Mistral Speed
:This is my Luderitz board that I used to break the women's windsurfing record on with a 45.83 knot 500m run. It is just an amazing board, thanks Chris Lockwood the designer he did a great job.
47 Production Mistral Speed
: for those non nuking days but broad conditions. This board is very fast and can take a 7.0m at a push and still be fast.

Simmer Sails

For Speed I use Simmer Race SC

Simmer SCR

I am now part of the Simmer International team

I moved to Simmer in 2009. I was drawn to Simmer by the UK importer Farrell O'Shea who has been developing the SC range over the last year with sail designer Tomas Persson and the international team and has achieved some fantastic results.

I found once you get to know the technique they are very easy to rig and I can hold them in wind strengths that with other sails would kill me. They are undoubtedly very very fast as I proved in 2012 in Luderitz using a production 5.5 scr I achieved 45.83 knots a new women's 500m world record.

For waves we use the Icon which for me is really easy to use and trust me in waves I need all the help I can get, and the Icon's come up trumps.

Spartan Wetsuits

Spartan Wetsuits make a welcome return to windsurfing under the new management of Mark Minter. Spartan Wetsuit's have long had a reputation for quality and most importantly to me being the warmest wetsuits money can buy.

Spartan are set to move forward with the times and new technology but keeping the reputation for non flashy very warm wetsuits. I am happy to say the new re-vamped company has meet and exceeded the high demands required for speedsailing in high winds and the dreaded wind chill that comes with it. My winter suit is the Extreme Dry which is mainly smoothskin has triple sealed seams and metal dry zip. Summer a combination of summer steamer and shorty which are brilliant at speed giving protection and comfort and built to a very high standard as I can bear witness to after some top crashes.

Sonntag Fins




Sonntag is a new Fin manufacturer on the windsurfing market. We met the owner and chief designer Joerg Sonntag and his wife Alexandra at a recent event and was very impressed by their level of professionalism and understanding of fin technology. I was partially interested in the ability Joerg has to customise the Sonntag fin flex and twist to accommodate the individual rider.

This is very unique in the fin world, as usually fins are developed by heavy powerful male team riders and not for me.

Basically I gave Sonntag my height , weight and the boards I use and he recommends a size stiffness flex % etc of the fin I need, FANTASTIC! also of great interest to me is the GPS 2 fin specifically designed for speed sailing. This fin has a very narrow width and negative center profile which should reduce drag at higher speeds, I cant wait to try it at West Kirby.

A few words from Joerg Sonntag " We focus on high performance/competition fins in custom technology. We try to stay at size where we still can produce products adopted to specific customer needs. We use highest quality materials available on the market to create fins that work for you"

SL-R race fin

We use custom made Assy speed fins from Sonntag from 18 to 22cm and for slalom a mixture of SLP and SLR depending upon the board.

If you want to know more please email Joerg directly

JVC Adixxion

I was asked to become a brand ambassador for JVC and I have been using there Adixxion camera and camcorders for training and promotional videos with some fantastic results. The Adixxion is waterproof and doesnt need a case which means you get clear crisp fog free footage and battery changes and SD changes are very easy.

This is one video we made recently in Luderitz.

Flymount for Go pro.

These mounts are fantastic for getting the gopro shots you need. Mount them on the top of the mast, front or back of the boom they are very strong (trust me when I come off they need to be) and so easy to use. They now have a Go Pro specific mount to make it even easier and more secure.

Navi GT31 and GPS Results Software

For speed training this device and the software designed by Manfred Fuchs is essential! I use it on every training day and especially for competition. I can analyze where I am loosing speed on the course and which run was quicker on which equipment and for competition, with the course overlaid I can ensure that I am hitting the run at full speed. Highly recommended.
