Jo learnt to windsurf on a Neilson holiday aged 11, and hasn't looked back since! She started competing in Techno racing as a kid and then moved onto formula racing before she trained as an instructor and has since worked seasons in Greece, Egypt and Turkey for Neilson as an advanced plus instructor.
Jo competed at the PWA slalom last summer in Alacati, with the help of Sam Ross she managed to finish 12th at the event. Following on from that Jo came third in the womens BWA at Gwithian and finished 3rd Overall in the SWA Freestyle series.
This summer she has spent here time windsurfing in Dahab and El medano, and is now back at Uni where she hopes to get out sailing lots around Devon and Cornwall this winter and competing in some SWA and BWA competitions. Keep an eye out as well as she may even get back into slalom sailing again ready for some PWA action next summer!
