Adam Lewis hails from Taunton, a town in South West England, inland from the coast. It’s not known for its windsurfing but that wasn’t going to stop Adam. His first steps were at Durleigh, a reservoir close to his home, where he progressed under the Royal Yachting Association’s Team 15 initiative. Success as a youth on the race course followed and along with his friends, Graham Woods and George Shillito, ‘Team AirBorn’ was formed to help channel their competitive skills. Branching out into wave and freestyle, a move to Tenerife as a young man saw Adam find his calling as a wave sailor. Entering his first PWA event in 2007 at Tiree he steadily climbed through the ranks through passion and devotion to his craft. In 2017 however, something changed, building all-important momentum in results and confidence in his ability he finished 5th in the world with the respect of his peers and congratulations from fans and friends on the back of a deserved result for years of tireless training.
