Ben Proffitt Crowned Windsurfer Of The Year…..January 6, 2015 9:08 pm Leave your thoughts
So for 2014 we were given 3 prolific UK windsurfers to pick our ‘Windsurfer Of The year 2014’. The people nominated were: Ben Proffitt – Wave, James Dinsmore – Slalom( Severne UK Rider), Jim Crossley – Speed, Emma Wilson – Racing, and Max Rowe – Freestyle (big hit at this years NWF).
The voting was definitely very close with the lead changing 3 times over the eight weeks of voting. But in the end a very popular winner Ben Proffitt came out on top. He will be handed the trophy by last years winner Farrel O’Shea and join a long line of previous winners including Nick Dempsey, Bryony Shaw, Zara Davis and Izzy Hamilton to name but a few
What Ben had to say when he found out.
“Awesome news thanks …to be honest if I’d lost to Emma Wilson I really wouldn’t have been upset as she had a great achievement this year winning the worlds!
Thanks to everyone that voted for me and that have supported me all year, you’ve all helped heaps. Also a massive thanks to my Sponsors Simmer Style, Oshea, Doppstadt and funsport for all the help over the years and last but not least my parents who got me into this amazing sport and drove me around in the early days. I’m not really sure where I would be today with out all your help, thanks. Fingers crossed for a bigger and better 2015! …Or more of the same would be good to!”
