When James Hardy Windsurfing & Watersports announced at the end of December 2023 that he had been appointed as the Test Editor of Windsurfing Magazine, anyone that knows the energy James would bring to that role would agree it was a genius move, James is hugely respected and has a wealth of experience. When he is not inspiring the next generation of grommets or instructing on an RYA course, he can now be found getting paid to do what he loves being on the water, trying the latest kit, his world domination in the world of watersports has stepped up another pace!

Fresh from the stage of the RYA Dinghy & Watersports show last weekend, I ask The Official Test Centre (OTC) Team Rider James Hardy about one of the many hats he wears, that of Test Editor at Windsurf Magazine. Now he has had time to bed in, how is he finding this new role and how does it fit with the many other strings to his bow. Writing a new chapter; James Hardy!
