Pozo Training Diaries – Intro (Part 1 and 2)

screen-capture-41

For anyone that doesn't know, I've started to record my Pozo Training diaries. I'm a bit late in starting them as the original idea was to do them with my girlfriend Justyna. But Jus had a very bad windsurfing crash and broke her foot very badly. (As explained in my last post) So things were put on hold...  but now i'm kicking them into gear.. If you haven't seen any of them..  check them out below. So far i've done 3 and i'm just doing the 4th now. If you have any ideas or comments just drop me a mail or a FB post. p.s looks windy again today :)

My girlfriend had turned up, we had the house sorted and forecast was looking good..  i mean really good. It was time to start proper training...  and to start proper training you need to have a video camera. Well i do anyway. I learn soo much more when i can go through the video everyday and see exactly what i'm doing wrong or right! So off we went and invested in a camcorder nothing flash...

So I click on Windguru and it's white..  it's white and no stars for the whole week ahead. Well i still have 5 weeks until the Pozo should start so maybe i'll get a few days in! A few days!!!!  what am i thinking??  This is crazy...  i have a shit load i want to learn/relearn and i'm not going to learn waiting for the wind here in the uk. So after a quick word with my self I got straight onto Skyscanner for the cheapest...
