Tom Wells Signs for Starboard / Tushingham

Puravida Boardriders and OTC are pleased to announce Weymouth young gun and BSA Junior slalom champion Tom Wells will be riding Tushingham and Starboard in his quest to take the amateur title for 2013. Tom joined the Puravida Slalom team in 2012 having been groomed by the Weymouth crowd down at the OTC powered by Puravida Boardriders. He has been working hard to keep improving and train through the winter alongside the likes of Kevin Greenslade and speed merchant Pete Young whatever the weather … and in spite of some very cold days! Tom has also been helping out at the windsurf centre for OTC/Puravida and joining the Pre-Season training camps soon to be hosted by Ross Williams.


Here is what Tom had to say about his new kit: “It’s incredible how much I have improved just by switching my quiver of boards and sails. I’m finding even though now I’m using full-on slalom gear opposed to freerace gear, the ease of use and my gybing have actually improved. My speed has increased dramatically as well and I can now keep up with the big guys in the BSA Pro Fleet. Can’t wait to try them out in some flat-water conditions where I can get some real speed! It’s also reassuring that the kit I’m using is already tested to be some of the best on the market although now I have no excuses if someone overtakes me!”


You can follow Tom’s progress on his new blog and here’s a little taster of how Tom’s pre-season training is going with his new kit.


For the month of March it will only cost you £10 to test any of the Starboard iSonic or Futura Models at OTC/Puravida and if that wasn’t enough,  Puravida Boardriders will be offering £100 off every model of the Futura and iSonic range as well as FREE DELIVERY for any mail order customers. There has never been a better time to test the kit all in one place on the water’s edge and get out sailing with the local speed merchants to help you get tuned up!
