Há uns meses, Dessie McGlinchey enviou-nos umas fotos fantásticas com um surfkayak amarelo a voar literalmente. Chris Hobson? Jonny? Dessie? Corin? Não. Era um júnior com apenas... 14 anos na altura. Mais tarde, veio ao Mundial em Portugal e, confirma-se... estamos na presença de mais um craque formado na grande escola norte-irlandesa de kayaksurf. Andy McClelland foi segundo em nos IC's Júnior em Portugal mas ainda há semanas ganhou na Irlanda do Norte o
Open 2009 nas duas categorias júnior: IC e HP. Claro... estamos na presença de mais um craque na NOVA GERAÇÃO.

A few months ago Dessie McGlinchey sent me an incredible sequence with an yellow surfkayak literaly flying. Was it Dessie? Jonny? Chris? Corin? No... an incredible junior with only 14 years old at that time. We already have been with Andy in Mundaka and this year, in the Portugal Worlds, he just blast! 2nd in IC class (junior) and a few weeks later, winner in both classes at the
Northern Ireland 2009 Open. Time to meet Andy McClelland! One more awesome surfkayaker formed in the great Northern Ireland school. NEW GENERATION!
