American multi-time windsurfing world champion Kevin Pritchard is eager to share his sport with the universe. This year he returned not only as a master sailor still active in the American Windsurfing Tour but also as a videographer with a unique and distinct style which is already turning heads and gaining recognition.
Kevin's splitting his time between sailing and shooting and editing. His company, Maui Nerd Productions that he founded with Johannes Nuemann, has made great strides in early existence and is setting a high bar when it comes to laying down some tape in a quick fashion with impact and style.
Thanks to Northern California photographer Erik Simonson for his assitance, here are daily highlights from the first stop of the 2011 tour - the Santa Cruz Classic held on May 5-8.
