C'mon Frank, it's gonna nuke!

Barack Obama Is A Kiteboarder

Why, oh why President Obama are you not windsurfing? I guess because Richard Branson is his host, and Richard likes the dark side. :) This is quite cool. The premise is: whilst these two gentlemen are on vacation, can Richard...

We was skunked

I drove from NYC to the house...grabbed the van...drove to New Suffolk...where I met Scott, Jonathan, and a beautiful windless vista of the Peconic. It was beautiful. But NF wind! Jon took out a big sup with a hydrofoil on...

How Long Does A Hamstring Injury Take To Heal?

Windsurfing at Tiana in late October I mucked up a jump. My back foot came out of the strap, I did a split and bonked my head with the boom during the landing. Here's what I said at the time:...

Newman Darby R.I.P.

Newman Darby invented the windsurfer. He wasn’t successful at marketing it, and his design needed refinement, but he up and invented it. There are people who quibble over this fact, but Jim Drake (the design half of Drake and Hoyle....

Gale Warning! The Wolf Bleeds...

Rip Rip Ripping

4.7 is my favorite sail size. Yes it is yes it is yes it is. You can have your 4.2 days (I'll take those too, actually, and everything else!) I like 4.7 best. That's what we got at Sebonac yesterday....

Today it is going to be windy

If you can get on the water, do it. The Wind Chimp/Puffin collective is chirping about Sebonac Inlet and Meschutt. Wet we shall be!

Epic Weekend Pays Off The Big Buildup (except for CD)

“This week has been crazy” Christian said. “There has been nonstop texting about where to sail since Tuesday! It had indeed been nuts. But after what seemed like 4.5 days of nonstop text traffic we were at Sebonac Inlet (instead...

This Weekend We Sail

Windsurfing, yes. Sebonac Inlet looks good as of press time!

Sunday looks like a real NUKER (to Scott.)

Attention all windly hopeful: Scott thinks Sunday is going to be a big day. Windy. Wavy. Me I think getting excited about a forecast five days out is an exercise in windsuffering. But in the meantime, lets hear it for...

Sunday Shred at Meschutt

Taking a break from the 4.7 conditions, the conversation turned to our feet. "Why are you wearing winter booties" I asked Scott. The water was warmish...I was more than comfortable in my summer booties. "They don't let sand in," Scott...
