Riding Giants in Mid Wales

Yet more jaw dropping Hercules action hits your screens!

This time it’s from mid Wales, where BWA sailors Jony Price and Lewis Merrony hit the stormy seas.

Filmed and produced by Alfie Hart, this short video shows some truly massive waves on Welsh shores. This is British windsurfing at its best, two guys taking on the elements and hoping to make it through!

Both Jony Price and Lewis Merrony have progressed from amateur up to pro in the BWA, a very impressive accomplishment that only a couple of riders per year can manage. How will they do in 2014, or their first and second (respectively) years in the pro fleet? Lewis was absent from the competition in 2013, will we see him return this year?

More about Jony:

“I’m super happy to take the ams title for the year! It’s the first year I’ve done the whole tour and after four incredibly fun road trips around the UK I would fully recommend anyone else to do it!

“A big thanks to Jim, Ross and Steve for all their support and encouragement; I’m really looking forward to next year!

“I’m excited for the challenge of being in the pro fleet next year, but I’ve definitely got a long way to go. I’ll be spending the winter searching for the best conditions I can find in the UK and Ireland – hopefully I’ll learn a thing or two and improve my sailing at the same time!

“Equipment wise, I’ve been using my Vandal sails and Tabou boards with K4 fins all year.
