Ollie Started windsurfing aged 15 and was instantly hooked, practising at his home spot in Emsworth. These days he mainly windsurfs at Esso on Hayling Island or West Wittering. Ollie is also an intermediate windsurf and SUP instructor.
Ollie first started competing at the National Windsurf festival in 2010 where he won the amateur fleet. The following year he competed at the national freestyle championships at Poole Windfest and won the men’s amateurs, after that event he was picked up by Andy Biggs Watersports and bought a quiver of Tushingham Edges.
He is currently a student at Southampton Solent University where he has helped to set up and run the windsurf team there. Although they are a small team they have been doing very well at the SWA events since the teams inception. In the 2011-2012 season Ollie was crowned the student freestyle champion and won BUCS Gold in the mens team racing along with fellow Tushingham rider Sam Sills and Adam ‘Chubsey’ Chubbock.
