Louis Morris Windsurfing
International Raceboard class
Who on earth is Louis Morris?
Louis is 20 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
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. 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'm not very good at it but hey, it's fun!
