March 7, 2019, Omaezaki, Japan – Making his return to the International Windsurfing Tour, Naish’s Bernd Roediger began his 2019 campaign taking the Force IV and Mad Dog overall in wild conditions.

The Omaezaki region of Japan has a rich history in windsurfing with a strong community of talented locals. The opening IWT event also drew a number of the worlds top wave sailors.

Despite being a familiar face in the Ho’okipa lineup, Bernd has not been a regular competitor on the IWT. From the start he had to begin with a low-seed and some difficult heat draws, including 2017 IWT champion Morgan Noiraeux in round two. After defeating Morgan, Bernd advanced to round four to take on Takuma Sugi before making it all the way to the finals.

Omaezaki is well known as a windy location and for the IWT it did not disappoint. The mens final was held in 30-40 knots of wind making for extremely exciting windsurfing action. Riding his 4.1m Force IV, Bernd put on a performance for the crowd worthy of a second place podium finish.

More importantly to Bernd was seeing a community of enthusiastic windsurfers. “What is more meaningful: having a successful result in a contest – as an individual – or having the contest itself be a success for all those involved? Many thanks to the town of Omaezaki for committing to our event for the next 5 years. The International Windsurfing Tour did a fantastic job of running a flawless series of heats. What’s more, this event connected with the local community and the insanely passionate windsurfers here. Over the next 5 years, I can see a whole new generation of inspired sailors breaking onto the scene, with this event having acted as a catalyst. That’s a victory for all of us.” Said Bernd after the event.

From here, Bernd will be staying busy as he heads to Chile for the second stop of the IWT, March 23-April 6.

February 28, 2019, Cabarete, Dominican Republic – Loaded up with all his favorite toys from Naish, including the Force IV and Global,  Brian “deAction Man” Talma brought his contagious stoke and love for all watersports to the fifteenth running of Master of the Ocean for a fifth place overall finish.

Combining Windsurf, SUP, Surfing and Kiteboarding, the Master of the Ocean is the perfect event for any Naish waterman like Brian who loves being on the water no mater what he’s riding.

“Every morning we competed in surfing and SUPing, then by mid day the wind picked up and we kiteboarded and windsurfed…..full on ACTION!!!” said Brian after the event.  A third in the windsurf and SUP disciplines helped him earn a fifth place overall finish.

While it is a competition, the laid back approach fits perfectly with Brian’s Beach Culture World Tour, which the Master of the Ocean worked in collaboration with. As a BCWT event Brian also showcased his symbolism art, which depicts his heritage, ancestry and beach culture and continues to grow as people are naturally drawn to Brian’s passion for watersports, art and  ever present big smile.

Plenty of action remains in Brian’s schedule as he hosts the next BCWT in the Turks & Caicos March 17-22. There he will continue to showcase SUP, windsurf, beach culture, his art and promoting his new deAction book, or as Brian would say: “ACTION!”

Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing) is a two-time PWA World Champion and one of the few sailors to have accomplished winning world titles across multiple disciples. In 2007 the Brazilian won the PWA Freestyle World Championship, while in 2013 he was able to add the PWA Wave World Championship to his resumé also.

In 2018, Browne finished the year ranked 5th overall, but was in title race contention heading into the final event of the year and there’s no doubt that he’ll be hoping to get his hands on the 2019 world title!

The 29-year-old is one of the best all-round wave sailors on the planet - equally adept on both port and starboard tack - and his latest video is shot in Maui, Hawaii where he absolutely kills it with speed, power and flow on the wave, while also adding pushloop forwards to his starboard tack repertoire.

Old School

Which do you prefer - old school or new school? For Kevin Pritchard (Goya Windsurfing / Ezzy) old school still rules, going back to the roots of wave sailing with full rail turns and under the lip aerials counting the most.

The 2016 Aloha Classic Champion has just released a new video filmed in Maui during December and early January, which sees KP concentrating on the old school theme, so you won’t find any 360s, goiters or takas here, but you will find plenty of committed turns and airs.
