Kevin Pritchard got inspired by the skiing analysis and produced an overlay clip with wave rides from him, Jason Polakow and Marcilio Browne. Watch the result.

“I have been really wanting to get better at windsurfing. When your level is high, to me it seems like it is harder and harder to get better. Every millimeter, every little tiny, grip of the toes, where you put your hands, where you are looking matters.

I saw some of the overlay comparisons watching Resi (Stiegler), my girl friend and Ski racer in the US Ski Team, at the Olympics. While it is nothing new, I thought that would be pretty cool to try and look at what is going on and what is happening where. On a wave it is very different because each wave is so different. The location of where and when you are bottom turning is totally different. I figured I would share the overlay as some of you guys might find it interesting maybe?

To me, it looks like I have most of the fundamentals down. It is just about putting more energy and speed into the turn. Brawzinho gets to his second turn quicker than I do with speed and power. Jason had a bit of a squirt of speed right on the bottom turn to get up the wave.” (Kevin Pritchard, US-3)


2 Questions to Kevin Pritchard 

Continentseven: From when is the footage ? And do you know if you three were on the same sail size, board sizes? 

Kevin Pritchard: Footage is from yesterday, 20.02.2014. We were all on similar sizes. I had the biggest sail and board then Marcilio, then Jason. 


Continentseven:  What do you think about your style in comparison to Marcilio and Jason? 

Kevin Pritchard: I think it is pretty good. It is pretty interesting to see them over the top of each other. I haven’t really seen anything done like that for windsurfing so it is kinda cool. Just something fun and maybe can learn from it. To me my major thing to learn from it is to be more aggressive on the wave and get into the turns more. It is fun!
