Xpression: ‘On-forecast’ Freestyle!


On forecast freestyle goes Live!



Xpression is the UK’s first ‘On forecast’ freestyle tour aimed at getting the UK’s top freestylers to the best freestyle locations on the best forecast.  Xpression aims to help push the level of freestyle in the UK and get great exposure for windsurfing to the general public, crowning an overall Xpression freestyle champion at the end of the year.  


The idea has been discussed for a while but recently Will Rogers and John Palmer decided to get the concept up and running after seeing the successes of WaveJam.  Previously the UK freestyle competition series was almost non existent, due to the difficulties organisers faced with running events at the mercy of UK’s unpredictable weather.  On-forecast Xpression freestyle sessions mean we will get much higher chances of getting top conditions and having the ability to push the levels.  It will also make it possible to get awesome photographs and video footage of everyone enabling us to promote windsurfing around the UK.


The 1st Xpression was run over the stormy weekend of 17th and 18th January 2009 in Portland harbour, with a strong turnout of enthusiastic freestylers from all over the UK-several travelling over 250 miles to take part on the epic weekend forecast!   Careful selection of the best spot in the week leading up Xpression paid off with hours of sailing for everyone in perfect conditions as well as a competition result in the bag!


The Xpression website (www.freestyleXpression.co.uk) is now up and running including a report, video and pictures of Xpression 1: Portland.  If you want to learn more about Xpression or get involved please have a look at the site or contact Xpression by emailing admin@freestyleXpression.co.uk.
