With so much Windsurfing happening all over the world, it is hard to keep up. Enter Ben Proffitt, a UK sailor who has experienced more or less everything in his time across all disciplines of the sport.
He is now the face of the PWA live stream and runs his own website Windsurfing.TV. His training diaries and his energy that he brings has made it compulsory viewing.
Here is a bloke who’s stoke on windsurfing is second to none, whether it be at competition level or travelling the Australian desert for months at a time.
With summer around the corner and the fresh sou-westers’ off the Western Australia coast ready to pump, be sure Ben will be there with the crew to capture all of what is great about our country and its coastline.
Don’t miss the live action of the next PWA slalom event in Hvide Sande, Denmark. Catch all the action with Ben and the PWA team at www.pwaworldtour.com.
