Puffin Under the Knife

I tried to take a selfie but all the rigging kept my arms from getting the extension necessary. Had some issues in the nose (stringer needed work, also some delamination here and there. Scott said "Hey I do that kind...

Meschutt Outer Space Sesh

Say what? Chatting with the Wolf on Friday as we discussed how long it had been since our last session at Meschutt, I brought up the time one of our sessions was caught by Google's satellites for Google Maps. He...

Return to Meschutt

"We haven't sailed here in years," the Wolf said. It's true. Between Hurricanes Sandy and Irene, and conditions, we hadn't sailed the fine NW launch since Spring 2011. "And they screwed up the beach" Scott noted. Something about stones and...

Robbie Gets A Round of Applause...

"Robbie gets a round of applause from nature." That's what Christian wrote when he shared this photo of 1111, taken by Mr. Carter. Just beautiful! Courtesy PWA World Tour.

Nuclear Options

Big winds, y'all. Saturday on Gardiners Bay, launching from Goff Pt. it was 4.2's ville with the occasional 3 meter wing. I arrived after peak conditions ("you missed it!" I was warmly chided) but still got to join Jon Ford,...

Scott's Weekend Forecast: Gardiners Saturday, Iron Pier Sunday

NOAA says it's gonna happen! Scott thinks the call is Goff (launch at Napeague Lazy Point, reach and tack up to the sand bar betwixt Napeague and Gardiners Bay, portage across, launch in the Land of the Giants!). Sunday a...

Barecrow Scarecrow

Leave it to the big bad Wolf to use an old drysuit as a scarecrow at his nursery. Thanks to Jeff Schultz for the photo and the post suggestion!

Return to Iron Pier

Just a few days ago at the Vanderdome we were lamenting the lack of Iron Pier sessions. Iron Pier is epic because you only go there when conditions are epic, and the Pier serves it up! Never sailed Iron Pier?...

Scott Keeps Breaking Them Boards

Joe reclines on Scott's latest bustage (at Goff's north o'Napeague). I'm sure his fin is benefiting from the experience. Oh wait... (Photo from the Earl of Kielt's Facebook page).

Sunday Funday?

The coastal marine forecast is calling for 15-20 gusting to 30 on Sunday. The iWindsurf computer models also smile upon the Sabbath. From the west What say ye, men of wind and water? Sebonac? Mayhaps the ocean if it goes...

Sebonac Tonic

Why wasn't Bill rigging? Or Hulse or Scott? "We're waiting for you to leave. Or at least release your downhaul" Ah. They wanted more wind. I was on the early shift at Sebonac Inlet. Needing to accompany Mrs. Puffin back...

Wolf Off The Starboard Bow

I missed it Thursday, but others did not. Chimply Lord Scotworth the Earl of Kielt texted me: "Ponquogue went off! 4.7, easy to get out. William (He Of Whom Fun Shall Not Be Made) didn't want to quit!" I love...

Full Bowl on Saturday

Wave sailing...on a Saturday...4.7 conditions...and warm? Yeeha! I hadn't sailed in the ocean since June (and it showed) but who cares! The Wolf, Scott, Jonathan, Joe, Jan, Bruce, Jeff, Bill, Hulse (kiting) a new guy named Remy and a few...

Could Saturday Be a Bowl Day?

Thus spake NOAA: E winds 10 to 15 kt...becoming se 15 to 20 kt in the late morning and afternoon. Gusts up to 25 kt. Scott in particular is hoping for some water time. Here he is at the Bowl...

K Road Wave Playground

There was a crowd on the water. Frank, Joe, Christian, Jeff, Jonathan, Nicholas, the Wolf, Scott (yaking) and many more, chasing the copious lefts. Thigh-to-waist high, sunny warm and beautiful, every Sunday should be this way. A highlight for me...

They're back! (Stumps at the Bowl)

Chimply Lord Scotworth just filed this. You know he's got the Bowl on the brain! Will it be windly there tomorrow? Some think so...stay tuned...

Meditations on What is Learned at ABK Clinics

I wasn't able to attend the ABK clinic at Tiana last weekend (various personal obligations) but I stopped by Friday morning to say Hi and to sail the eastern breeze. Just being near the clinic pushed me to think about...

Hail Caesar (at the coming ABK clinic...)

Attention freestylee sailors and admirers: Word is that Caesar mighty Caesar will be on the water (and at the simulator) at next week's ABK clinic at Tiana. For anyone aspiring to learn flowstyle (or mad freestyle): FYI! And regardless...if you're...

Carnage At The Bowl

(filed by our special correspondent Chimply Lord Scotworth:) Got the call early to go to Ditch,supposedly it was epic so jamming out there some guy in a box truck in front of me turns his left blinker on so I...

More Mecoxing

I caught the best part...an hour powered 6.2 on my 99 liter Skate. Jibes, upwind 360's and even a couple backwinded jibes. Woo Ha! (ABK is coming soon...I am preparing.) Then it began to die as Sally arrived, followed by...
