Beer money

Have you enjoyed the Training Diaries? beer-money-party-cup-bank

Well, it’s thirsty work and surely it deserves a couple of cold ones;)

So if you want to help keep my vocal chords from drying up and don’t want to see a poor English guy go thirsty…   you can now ‘Donate’ some money to buy me a pint..  or 2.. or 3!!

Don’t worry I wont be spending it all on beer.. haha…  the rest will get spent on bringing you more action and crashes from around the world   …and if enough is raised maybe  in getting some better camera equipment!  …now that would be good :)

Oh yeah..  and I’ve already been bought my first beer (actually about 20 if i was in Capetown.. ) So Big thanks to   ‘Bart Ter Haar’ (from Boardkings.com)  for the first round and the idea!

Hopefully i can keep you entertained with the future Training Diaries.

Cheers Ben

    Thanks Ben, love those diaries. Great fun. Likes what you did for Peter. I saw him sailing at the last Dutch speed championship. Pretty amazing guy. Good luck next week competing! cheers, Frederik

      Thanks Frederik.. glad your liking them. Yep, Peter was a great guy.. he will be sorely missed. To be honest i would have loved to have done more.. maybe one someone will put a proper video together celebrating all his life.. it definitely would be worth a watch! :)

    I always enjoyed the Training Diaries back home on my second screen while working.... but now I´m here and can see it all live.... I know how hard it is to sit there and film and to put together the whole thing.. so: your work is awesome!!! It adds a lot to the windsurfing world.

    Hi Ben The 2015 diaries are the best yet. And the very best windsurfing journalism. Thank you for making them. Rod Dickinson Ps Do you know about Jono Dunnett's round Britain attempt? One sail and board, all his belongings in a barrel and only relying on crowd sourced shore support. Another equally epic windsurfing event. And one I reckon you would appreciate. He did Lundy island to Tenby in one morning! http://windsurfroundbritain.co.uk

      Thanks Rod.. it's really nice to hear all my efforts are appreciated.. thanks :) Yeah.. for sure i've been following it.. i've been thinking of a few ideas about other windsurfing news and how i could do a News (diaries style) podcast on a monthly basis where please drop me footage on dropbox! Well lets see.. i'll get my ass in to gear one and sort it out.

        Hi Ben. Great. Jono is 3/4 of the way across to Ireland! Unaided. No boat or support when he gets there. Big balls award? Anyway the diaries are brilliant. Hats off to you. Pretty ballsy stalled forwards too. Hope you do well in the comp. boards forum will be cheering for you and Justyna.
