Windsurfing began as an obsession in my mid teens...


When I wasn’t windsurfing myself, I was watching windsurfing. When I wasn’t watching windsurfing, it was all I could think about. I was addicted to every aspect of the sport, the action, the lifestyle, and just the sheer beauty of it. Being a professional windsurfer was a pipe dream, but when you look down that pipe and can only focus on one thing, it’s only a matter of time before you get it!

Competition can be a tiresome process. There’s a lot of waiting around for wind and waves but when everything comes together and you’re doing well, there’s nothing like it. If you want to be the best in the World then the PWA competition scene is the place to prove it. I want to be World Champion and the way I see it, there are 17 more people to go until I get there… I can’t wait for next season to start!

I have always been fascinated by windsurfing films.


The blend of action, music and lifestyle used to have me hooked. I originally had no experience in video editing, not even the software, nothing, only fixed ideas on what I liked and exactly how I wanted windsurfing to be portrayed. umi is a company that I have been a part of for a long time that began through friendship and a shared vision of windsurfing. Now we are the largest and most respected windsurfing media house of our sport who regularly work with world champions of past and present.

As with all of the action sports travel comes as part and parcel of being one of the best. Offering massive scope for the story that makes Jamie’s life so aspirational, taking in some of the worlds great windsurfing locations and discovering new ones. This not only gives the photos, video and content that any brand can associate with to better sell their story but also gives Jamie the experience in the broadest range of conditions to further enhancing his sailing.

Travel is addictive! It’s also essential to ensure that I train in as broad a range of conditions as possible. Travel isn’t all about the training though, I love experiencing new places and cultures. On many of my trips, I am also accompanied by a photographer and videographer. Documenting my travel for lifestyle features helps me to attain a lot of coverage that I get on websites and the magazines.

Jamie has become one of the best windsurfers in the world more through sheer talent and determination than the training facilities that he’s got to hand in the UK. While his freeriding/training make up some of the most enjoyable time he spends on the water, in order to continue at this high level and establish himself even further as one of the most dominating forces on the world windsurfing circuit, he needs the facilities, conditions and general water time that his competition takes for granted.

training sounds like hard work but it’s actually the most fun part! it’s also crucial prerequisite for doing well in competition. You can get some great conditions in the uk but they can be quite inconsistent especially in the wintertime. many of the top international guys grew up in places like Hawaii and south america. these kinds of places provide a perfect training ground year round and training there can make a massive difference to my performance in competition.

Training, travel and being one of the best are the basic ingredients for what makes the right kind of media coverage. Each of these areas can then be tailored to offer as specific or generic a story that is needed to suit the message. In most cases the message is simply one of an incredible athlete doing incredible things and Jamie has massive experience in working with all types of media that has raised one of the biggest profiles in windsurfing through his time in the sport.

Getting the right kind of media coverage takes a lot of work. My relationship with the guys at umi started as a childhood friendship and a shared vision of windsurfing and I’ve been lucky enough to work with them over the past few years. They’ve grown to become one of the largest and most respected media houses in our sport working with World champions past and present. Good coverage is one of the best ways to stay in the public consciousness and justify my sponsors investment in me.

The equipment used in windsurfing is as technical and bespoke to the individual athlete as required in any sport. Association with this is an association with the very best in sporting technology. Windsurfing equipment offers excessive branding space from which to engrain this association and with one of the biggest profiles in the sport Jamie offers the best possible platform for this promotion.

All of my boards are built by a custom shaper to suit my personal weight and individual style. My fins are made specifically to work with the shape of my boards. They are all made from molded resin developed for lighter weight riders with maximum flex for snappier and sharper turns. All in all, it’s high tech stuff, I have worked hard towards ensuring that all my equipment is tailored to my requirements so that it allows me to push it as hard as I can every time I’m on the water. Having the best equipment is key to everything!

My equipment is as specialized as it gets… My sails are designed in accordance to the stiffness of my reduced diameter masts. They are all four-batten design and very low aspect. This keeps them feeling soft and responsive and really helps with getting big airs and rotating jumps.
