Who on earth is Louis Morris?
Louis is 22 years old, and has an obsession with windsurfing.

I grew up in east Cornwall and first learnt to sail (age 8) and windsurf (age 10) at Siblyback lake near Liskeard. My first experiance of racing was in sailing dinghys, but this was soon followed by the joys of Team 15, where I could go to events and have a laugh racing with other kids. Actually looking back, I took the racing side of it far too seriously! Anyway, I was hooked and still am, currently racing the Raceboard windsurfing class in the UK and internationally having come through the RYA youth pathway on Techno and RSX.

I love raceboard because it is fun (obviously), competitive, and I doesn't demand a full time training program, allowing me the time to study Chemistry at the University of Bristol, and do lots of other things such play music, walk, road/mountain bike, wave windsurf. Whilst at university I became heavily involved with the University of Bristol Windsurfing club, eventually becoming its president, and introducing many students to the joys of windsurfing in the most affordable way possible.

I graduated from the University of Bristol with a first in Chemistry, and am currently working towards a PhD in Catalysis at the Catalysis CDT of Cardiff, Bristol, and Bath Universities.

I have spend most summers since the age of 17 as a windsurfing and sailing instructor at Siblyback Lake and Polkerris Beach in Cornwall. I love instructing, sharing the joy that being on the water brings to me with others, and helping them to improve their skills and have fun! I also enjoy coaching other windsurf racers. It is hugely rewarding, and I believe it also helps me to look at my own windsurfing in a more analytical way.

I am a little ashamed that I lived in Cornwall for 18 years without surfing or wave windsurfing, all this racing stuff kind of took over. Anyway, I like to do lots of wavesailing now. I won the 2014-15 Student wave series, and I'm pretty determined not only to push my own limits in freesailing, but also to succeed in competition on the BWA tour.

My dream is to one day become Raceboard world Champion. I would also love to become a professional windsurfer on the PWA tour. I will keep training in windsurfing, and keep studying in Chemistry, we will see which path I eventually am able to take as a career, but one thing is for sure. I will always love windsurfing, no matter what the conditions, discipline, or equipment are.
