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...

Spring Session M
