I just finished shooting an episode of ‘Creek to Coast‘ in Australia last week, which went to air over the weekend on Channel 7 on Australian television; nation-wide. The full transcript from the episode is as follows:
Whilst the forecast of twenty-knot winds might be enough to blow out a day on the water for most, for six-time Australian and Oceanic windsurf Champion Sean O’Brien it’s just right. Competing on the international circuit takes Sean all over the world but when he’s home he loves nothing more than hitting the water at Redcliffe or at Manly. Windsurfing equipment has come a long way since the eighties. Boards are smaller and made from materials like carbon fibre. Sails are also a lot more advanced similar to technology used in the Americas Cup. The aerodynamics of this equipment means Sean can get speeds up well over 70 km/h. In May, Sean heads back overseas to again represent Australia on the world stage – to follow his performance check out his website.
