Windsurfing on TV - The One Show 7pm Fri 5 June

Date Date: 03/06/09
BBC1 The One Show 7pm Friday 5th June


BBC1's "The One Show" is running a feature on how Hayling Island and Peter Chilvers have a claim to fame for being the birth place and inventor of windsurfing - 50 years ago!

It's virtually unheard of that six million people get to see windsurfing on national TV. It's just as rare to get the chance to sail a replica of the very first windsurfing board ever made! Simon Bornhoft and two of his young coaching prodigies, Ed & Harry De Blaby, were privileged to be part of an historic windsurfing moment - captured by the BBC.

This feature not only shows the original windsurfer being sailed at Fleet Creek where windsurfing was invented, there's interviews with Chilvers plus some windy sunny action from Hayling seafront!
