After an amazing 3 weeks here in Peru and placing 9th at the KSP Pacasmayo Pro, I am now sat in lima waiting for my flight home.
Got some amazing photos which will be up on my personal site and in the mags soon.
Looking like its going to be perfect for our first wave clinic this saturday 12th so if youve booked a spot I will be in touch to confirm on wednesday. There are still a couple of places left for the next clinis on the 26th nov so be quick and improve your wave skills this winter.
Also time is running out to book your spot on our Cape Verde wave adventure in January so be quick.
At Pasty Adventures we now have the full range of 2012 North Surfboards available to demo and so far I am super impressed with all the boards now being nice and light.
The Wam is the allround model, suited for strapless as well as strapped riding, the 6’0 is
amazing for riders over 80kg while if you are 70-80 the 5’10 and under 70 the 5’8. I prefer the thrusters set up, but the quad option does give you more drive in onshore conditions.
The Kontact is aimed at big wave riding but it also works really well in onshore (which was a big surprise to me) due to
its narrower shape allowing you to lay down full speed carves without bouncing out. It is also real fast and smooth in choppy water. If you like going fast and carving big cutbacks into the pocket, in chunky onshore conditions then
this is probably the board for you.
The Whip this year comes in 2 sizes and I’ve found it performs best when ridden with straps. The 5’8 has a fair bit of volume and is good for over 80kg riders and the 5’6 under 80kgs, who mostly ride strapped in onshore or cross on waves up to head high, if you ride in bigger stuff, I’d recommend the Wam.
The last 2 boards are the X Surf 5’11 and Nugget 5’0 which I haven’t had time to get on yet but both look really exciting as strapless boards. The X Surf is going to be my board for strapless fun in not ideal waves up to head high while the Nugget is a chop and small wave fun strapless jumping board.
If you want to demo any of the boards I will have them in the van when I’m back or email email@example.com
All the demo boards will also be available to test on our wave clinics and coaching holidays this winter.
Well the autumn has kicked off with a bang. Loads of wind and waves making for perfect kitesurfing conditions down ere in cornwall. We will be running kitesurf lessons at gwithian and marazion right up until christmas as long as the weather doesnt get too cold this year.

The new 2012 kit from North Kiteboarding is super nice and we have the full range of surfboards available for demo, give Lee a call or just ask to try one at the beach!

Kitesurfer, Lee joins the Worlds elite
Lee Harvey aka Pasty from Penzance, Cornwall has been selected to compete on the Kite Surf Pro world tour. An extensive voting process was initiated by the International Kiteboarding Association, involving National Kite Associations, the panel of judges and wave riders committee, the IKA industry partners and the world’s kitesurfing media who were asked to submit their Top 15 male and Top 8 Female kitesurf wave riders. These are then added to the 7 pre qualified male riders bringing together the World’s Top 22 male and 8 females to battle out for the 2011 World Kite Surfing crown in the best waves on the planet. The only other UK rider to be selected was 3 x Women’s World Wave champion, Kirsty Jones from Wales.
Lee says; ‘I am so stoked to be recognised as one of the best wave riders in the world with a kite and can’t wait to fly the Cornish flag at the best spots in the World. To be listed alongside the sports superstars, is amazing and gives me extra motivation to train hard and represent my country as best as I possibly can. Hopefully I’ll be bringing the World title home to Penzance for Christmas.’
The first stop of the tour is in Mauritius in September, then goes to Peru in October and finally Cape Verde in December where the World Champion will be crowned in the famous right hand point break of Ponta Preta.
Lee is now in need of sponsors to help with the travel costs. If you are interested or can help, please contact lee by email- firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss which level of sponsorship is best suited to you or your business.
