Oh man what an amazing trip to Mauritius! Myself and Luke Baillie got an offer to fly over to compete in the epic PRO-AM teams competition that is the ‘Mauritius Freeride Paradise Challenge’ against teams from Europe, Africa and around the Indian Ocean. We finished 3rd team behind the local legends from Mauritius and Team France (who included the current PWA World Champion – Delphine Cousins). The event took place over a week with 4 distinct events with everything from downwind slalom, figure-8 slalom, speed racing and giant 40km marathon all taking place at different beaches around the southern end of Mauritius. I can’t really get enough of tropical reef sailing, so enjoy some pics and stay tuned next month in the magazines as some never-before-seen pics will be hitting the shelves!
