How to Survive A Shark Attack

This is excerpted from Surfer Today's article "How to survive a shark attack". I've left out all the more commonly known stuff about avoiding dawn/dusk, muddy water, bleeding in the water etc. Particularly to the point is the bit on...

Saturday Wavesailing?

Thus Speaketh NOAA: E winds around 10 kt...increasing to 15 to 20 kt with gusts up to 25 kt in the afternoon. Seas 1 ft or less...then 2 to 3 ft in the afternoon. A chance of rain in the...

Jump on someone else's SUP board (demo, silly) Saturday!

Stand Up Paddling in the Hamptons...Ya Mahn. Saturday at Cold Spring (down the road from Hampton Watersports) said Watersports store will be sponsoring a free SUP demo, featuring boards from Naish, Starboard, and Adventure. I myself think nobody makes a...

Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right

"Who is Michael calling a clown? Or a joker? You gotta be kidding me!" That's what they're saying (Jeff and the Wolf, anyway). Or should be! For I am a clown and a joker SUPsurfing! Still, on a lovely Sunday...

The Unexpected 4.7 Day, with video

4.7 windsurfing, sunny and warm, on a Saturday? Hashtag Jackpot I say! And it wasn't even in the forecast. I'd been by the windsurfing shop to chat with Jonathan, sent the obligatory lamentations about the crumbling forecast for the day...

Shark Mary Lee Heads South

Mary Lee has left the building. Or the coast of Long Island, which is good enough for me. When we last reported on the lovely 3,500 pound great white shark, she was idling away the hours off of Gilgo, whilst...

Great Big Shark

The only people I want to hear telling me that sharks are beautiful creatures that pose no danger to humans are windsurfers and SUPpers who have had a shark display interest in them while out on the water. Happened to...

Why teach kids windsurfing?

This applies to windsurfing as well! First seen as posted by Chimply Lord Scotworth (the Earl of Kielt) on Facebook. To save some money, go to the swap meet this Saturday at Hampton Watersports!

Swap Meet Next Saturday

I''m repeating it for good measure. And because I love swap meets! Windsurfing. Stand up paddling. Kiteboarding. Stuff to buy, to sell, to swap. I love swap meets. All that gear that's seen all that wind and water. Waves even!...

The Family That Sails Together

Liz Patton posted this photo of Mike Burns and chickadees in Cape Hatteras on Facebook. Had to repost it!

4.2 and a Thief at The Bowl

4.2! Giant airs! Four turn front-side down the line waveriding! I missed it, but Jeff didn't. Nor did Scott, the Wolf, Jon, Pav, Bruce and Eric. It sounded so sweet...I haven't sailed in the ocean in six months, and haven't...

Up and Down

Another Saturday at Sebonac. Scott Jeff Kurt and yours truly (me later to be swapped out for Frank and Joe) on 5-somethings and all kinds of boards. I started with the 5.5 on my 109...then the wind picked up, so...

Spring Session M

My first local sesh since mid-November! Plagued by minor surgery, a dinged back, and the Winter That Froze Over Hell, it had been awhile for your humble editor. But the dry spell is done! 4.2 at Sebonac Inlet: Scott, the...

Windsurfing Swap Meet May 9th

Windsurfing. Stand up paddling. (cough) Kiteboarding. Stuff to buy, to sell, to swap. I love swap meets. All that gear that's seen all that wind and water. Waves even! The details: Hampton Watersports, Saturday May 9th, 9A-4P. Swapping is free,...

East Coast Windsurfing Festival Dates Announced

Lord Burns has spoken: June 6th and 7th! "Pencil in the dates" he wrote in Facebook. Yeah well we'll write them in sharpie, and fix it later as kneed bee. "Cause the East Coast Windsurfing Festival is the bee's knees!

Some Waves Are Way Too Big For Me To Sail, Too.

Another day, another wave that I would need to pass on. Robby Naish posted this picture on Facebook a few days ago (photographer credit is Tracy Leboe). In his post Robby said "It was not a huge day, but the...

Paddle Paddle Paddle!

Oh man does he want to make it over the lip. Submitted to the Puffin by Dr. Pain, original source unknown.

Wave Sailing Aruba?

Wave sailing Aruba. Yeah I said it. Check out this photo of the mighty Jeroen Weststrate tearing up Westpunt, Aruba. Also check out the photo credit in the lower right corner: Dasher Films. Methinks something special is afoot down Aruba...

When The Water Is Hard

The Mighty Mike Burns recently queried the Long Island windsurfing forum thusly: "Liquid water?" What's a waterman or waterwoman to do with all this ice? I had a great seven days in Bonaire last month (more reports coming) but I...

Next to Last Day, Bonaire Windsurfing Vacation

Friday morning. Light rain. I have developed a sore back from I don't know what (the beachside masseuse says the chop has been rough on people's backs. The beachside masseuse...yeah I said it.) So I am in pain. But it's...
