After the extreme conditions of spring in Ireland this summer saw Team Fakefish

travel further afield. John Skye F2/Arrows/Chiemsee/Oneill) became a resident

of windy Pozo, Gran Canaria in order to train for the PWA Freestyle/Wave grand

slam taking place there. Team Coach, Jem Hall (Pro Limit/Northshore/Chiemsee)

flew out a week prior to the competition to oversee the final preparation in

order to get John peaking for the event.

He certainly seemed to benefit from the video coaching, tuning tips and copious

amounts of nutritious food given to him.

Skyboy certainly produced the goods as he got a 6th in freestyle and 17th in

waves, and only on his first full year on the tour. He took down some big names

including a certain Mr Stone. This momentum continued as he achieved a 4th place

in the Fuerteventura PWA freestyle comp, taking down world freestyle champion

Antoine Albeau.

Currently lying 2nd overall in the freestyle rankings to say he is stoked is

an understatement.

Big congratulations also go out to Chris Audsley (Mistral/Sailworks/Oneill/2xs)

who got a 3rd place in the Gorge games. Only just missing out to world tour

regular and freestyle master Web Pedrick.

Nice one boys come on you Brits.

are looking for sponsorship. Details on this opportunity are on the website.
