Happy Christmas, New Sponsors & a Fab New Year…

December 22, 2008 @ 9:21 AM – Johara

December has been awesome… winter wave sessions and new sponsors to work with for 2009… I am stoked!!

As well as my trusty old timers, Flexifoil kites and Turbulence Extreme Sports shop, I have support from Brewin Dolphin investment management co and get to ride in Prolimit wetsuits and harnesses, Bolle goggles, sunglasses and an amazing white leather helmet with fur round the ears as well as my stylish and technical board wear from Surfanic .  Don’t tell anyone, but Flexifoil are also making me my own set of PINK AH Pro kites for 09!  SHhhhh!!  It’s been a long 3 years of hassling them, but it finally paid off!  Stoked!!

I’ve also had the amazing opportunity to be working on my fitness and rehab on my foot with personal trainer Joshua Wedlock at the Buzz Gym in London.  He specialises in sports specific training and has got me doing lots of crazy things in the gym!  Love it!

North Wales has been going off at some of our secret wave spots, so we’ve been braving the hail storms for some epic sessions.  I would like to add that, thanks to my Prolimit wetsuit jacket and amazing gloves, all the guys were wearing wetsuit hoods and I was not!  Wimps!

So I just wanted to say HAPPY CHRISTMAS ladies, don’t eat too many mince pies and make sure you head out for a nice breezy walk on Christmas morning so you feel you deserve that second helping of Xmas pud!  I’m running round packing my kite kit and snow chains ready for leaving with kite-buddy Sheryl to the Col du Lautaret for the French Snowkite Masters… BRING IT ON!!!
