Louis Morris

Tushingham & Starboard

Having learnt to windsurf at Siblyback Lake in Cornwall aged 10, Louis sailed every Saturday in the summer and after a couple of years entered his first Team 15 competitions, eventually selected for the Techno National squad. After sailing RS-X for a couple of years and finishing 6th at the Nationals, he decided that the life of a professional athlete was not for him. Rather than pursuing RS-X further, Louis switched to the Raceboard class.

In 2013, Louis finished 3rd at the World Championships, was National Champion in 2014 and 2015 and finished 4th at the Worlds in 2015. He started wavesailing in 2011 and was crowned Student Wave Champion in 2014. He's already pushing his skills further in this discipline and competing on the BWA tour.

Louis works as a racing coach and has great experience of coaching from working as an instructor in Cornwall. He thrives on bringing new people into the sport and as a result became president of the University of Bristol Windsurf club. He frequently volunteers as an instructor and delivers clinics at Student Windsurfing Association events. Currently Louis is living in Cardiff studying for a PhD in Chemistry.

He uses the Starboard Phantom 377 and Tushingham XR-Race 9.5 for racing and the Starboard Kode 77 and Tushingham Rocks for wavesailing. His dream goals are:
1. To become Raceboard World Champion
2. To live a life where he can regularly enjoy windsurfing, and experience amazing wavesailing conditions.

Team Rider Louis Morris wins Amateurs Tiree Wave Classic 2016

I’m just on my way back from an amazing week at the Tiree Wave Classic. It was a really fun week with plenty to do even when the conditions weren’t ideal for windsurfing.

 Luckily, we did have some great windsurfing conditions. Last Saturday I got out for some light wind down the line conditions, then was ran a single and double elimination on Sunday in strong wind and small waves. I was powered up on my 3.7 and 4.2 rocks and 77 Kode, and although it was hard to find good waves and ramps.

I managed to make it to the final and finish 2nd behind local ripper Tristan Levie. After a rest day, we were excited for a big forecast on Tuesday. The wind was strong, and the waves built as the tide pushed, so after the Pro’s completed their double elimination, the ams triple elimination took place in some really amazing down the line conditions.

I went freesailing on my 4.2 for a couple of hours which a lot of fun, but left me very tired for my heats. By the time I competed I was on 5.0 and it was a game of patience to get the best set waves. I managed to defend my 2nd place from charging Jack Pettit, and then win the final against Tristan, forcing a super final to decide the event winner. In the end, I managed to win, which I’m really happy (and rather surprised) with.

Pre Training For European Championships 2016

I was visiting my girlfriends family in the midlands at the weekend, and managed to get out for a windsurf at Rutland Water.

Shame I was the wrong weekend for the industry demo, but I had a great last training session before I head off to France for the European Championships next week.

My new Tushingham XR-Race feels great, my Phantom 377 feels as quick as ever, and after watching Nick’s awesome performance at the Olympics, I can’t wait to get racing!”

The UKWA Cup Series Came To Portland Harbour

The UKWA cup series came to Portland Harbour last weekend. The 19 raceboards completed 8 races with wind from 5 to 12 knots.

Without many shifts or gusts, boardspeed and good starts were rewarded. I was really happy to win every race, as several of my competitors were also really fast in these light wind conditions.

This is the last competition before the European Championships in a months time. There are 19 people attending from the UK, including 10 youth competitors. I’m really looking forward to it!
