2003 saw Louise give up her full time job as a watersports instructor to concentrate on her windsurfing career. The result was a fantastic season, winning the UK Triple Crown Series and coming second at the UK Wave Finals on the IOW. With her new sponsors, Schroders Investment Bank and Opodo Travel Company, she is looking forward to competing on the PWA World Tour in 2004 as well as competing at all major UKWA Freewave events. The first of the 2004 season being the Indoor Windsurfing Competition at the Schroders International London Boat Show.
