Keith Gets to grips with his new formula fin

"I'm very happy with the result, I felt very comfortable with my equipment, my F-hot Formula fins were working exceptionally well, they gave me great  pace upwind, on the reaches and downwind, with the ability to point high off the line. I was also very happy with my 2012 North warp Sails, I was mentally prepared for the event. It was very close, and down to whoever won the last race to take the event win, I knew what needed to be done and I was happy that I pulled it out of the bag when I needed to. I'd like to thank my sponsors for their incredible support: North Sails, Fanatic, ION, F-hot fins, Marlow ropes, Kennett Watches, Physioactive and Wet 'n' Dry Boardsports"

Keith looks foward to 2013 season.
