SUPpin' Small but Sweet

Ponquogue was smooth and organized (if not very big) Saturday, and Christian, Peconic Jeff, New Jeff, Tomas and yours truly got on it and had some fun. I also got to try out my roller bar GoPro mount on the...

Windsurfing Swap Meet (and SUP and kiteboarding) May 14th on Long Island

Hampton Watersport's spring swap meet returns on May 14th. This is important because are either in category A, B, or C. Category A: You need gear. Category B: You have gear you should sell (because you're ready for better gear,...

Sheeting Out

"That's the most wind I've sailed in years," Scott declared, after tailwalking in to the beach at Sebonac Inlet on Sunday. It was crazy windy. We were mostly on 3.7's and 3.4's, and LIT. Frank, Anders, Peconic Marty, Scott, John's.....

Rusty

It has been over three months since I'd been in the water at all. No windsurfing (Bonaire trip cancelled) no SUP...I was dry and lame and out of practice. I was so lame that even when I met Peconic Jeff...

Where are the snow sessions?

I love the winter for windsurfing. Yeah it's cold but we usually get a half dozen ripping sessions in...3 or 4 meters on the bays, maybe a 4 or small 5 on the relatively warm ocean. And we rig in...

Whale Breach Wow

The great Alf Imperato (the windsurfing instructor who, at my first clinic, told me "you sail fast but you do everything wrong. Everything." And who subsequently fixed me...) posted this on Facebook. Photo taken by William R. & Beach Activities...

Windsurfing Prayer

I need a session. Scott needs a session. The Wolf, Peconic Jeff, Christian...the whole lot of us need a session. Winter windsurfing please!

Danny MacAskill Strikes Big Time (video)

Danny MacAskill is the only non-watersport athlete that's ever been featured in The Peconic Puffin. His freestyle bike riding is so transcendentally mind-blowing that fans of any sport with freestyle can revel in its magnificence. He recently teamed up with...

Jibe By Dasher. Gratitude.

A couple months ago my jibe guru Dasher came through town, accompanied by his lovely girlfriend Maggie. I got to spend some time with them, but unfortunately wind and waves did not present an opportunity to windsurf or SUPsurf (I...

Jeff and Bruce Are Showing Their Stuff

There are a number of visual artists within the Puffin/Wind Chimp collective. Right now at the Alex Ferrone Photography Gallery in Cutchogue the work of Peconic Jeff Schultz and Bruce Milne (that's Bruce of Jan & Bruce) are showing some...

iRoad Delivers Waves

(sorry about the long break...the editorial staff has been otherwise engaged.) I am apparently the last person in Puffindom, Chimpdom, Chimply Puffindom, Puffinly Chimpdom etc to learn about I Road. Between Ponquogue and The Bowl (park on the bay side,...

Bitten by the Sea Snake

"Can I give you some constructive criticism?" Hulse asked. "No" I replied. I had just returned to the beach after a few minutes of humiliation in the impact zone. Couldn't get out, couldn't get in gracefully. "Well you're going to.....

A Great Day at the Bowl

I missed it, but 25 lucky waterpeople didn't! 4.7 in the AM, 4.2 in the PM according to Scott. Wow! (Top: Air Scott by Bill Doutney. Bottom: Crowd shot by Jeff Schultz.)

Storming North Sea Road

I never got around to writing about the magnificent long windy weekend a coupla weeks back. Three meter sailing at Napeague on Friday, then back to back 4.2 days at North Sea Road (where men go when Gardiners and Napeague...

Man Up for Friday

“Man up, Puffin,” Frank said. I was whining about the prospect of sailing at Goff Pt on Gardiners Bay in 40 knot gusts (that’s 46 mph winds. Highway speed!) Mightn’t we consider sailing someplace slightly less insane? East Landing? North...

Winter Is Coming (Scott says.) The Last Summer Session

Meschutt Sunday. I was rigging a 6.2. The Wolf looked dubious. "Rig your 5.8," I said. "He didn't bring his 5.8," Scott said. He's a 5.3 snob now. "I'm a 5.3 snob," the Wolf agreed. What the heckage? "It's on...
