The Kook is Back

Watch out, world...I'm back on the water. After two months of landlocked exile, I returned to windsurfing yesterday, sailing with Bill at Mecox. Beautiful 6.2 conditions, and a jibatorium perfect for remembering how to do this darn sport. We ripped...

North Sails in Manhattan?

"A new windsurfing shop in Manhattan" I wondered? Then "could it be a sailboat store?" No and No. At the site of what used to be Paul Smith's menswear shop (where I once interviewed Dee Dee Ramone) North Sails now...

Parking in South Jamesport...Be Careful!

There had been the optimistic sense that you could park at South Jamesport without a permit. Now the word is: WRONG! A wind chimp who shall not be named to protect his anonymity had a chat with a constable. "Locals...

Ducking Responsibilities? What Happened to The Peconic Puffin?

What the heck happened to the blog? One post per month? Lame... Yes it's true. The "why" is my wife and I rented out our house for the summer, and so your humble editor is marooned in New York City...

South Jamesport Nukage

Sebonac Inlet hits the Jackpot!

80 degrees air temps. 25+knots WNW. On a Sunday! The reef set up beautifully...symmetrical repeating waves to S through ("I'm going to dream about it" John Natalie said). So very, very nice. I can't name half of the people on...

Men of Wind and Rum

Saw this online and thought of our windy brethren at Reef Warriors. Great Lakes windsurfers, and folk who do not Hide the Rum!

Peconic Jeff's Photography Coming to Easthampton Show

Beautiful image. Light like some impressionist painting. A surfer way in the distance, walking it up the beach. What a shot. It's by Peconic Jeff, from a collection of Jeff Schultz' photos coming to an East End photographers' Spring exhibition...

Don't Try This On Your SUP (sirsasana)

My most excellent Iyengar yoga instructor Lucienne warned me that this would be difficult (bad difficult). SURELY (I thought)...SURELY if I go on extra-flat water I can manage a headstand. Sirsasana. SUP Sirsasana! Yeah well... With the Mrs. positioned with...

Encore Monday

A few of the guys got a taste of Ponquogue in gusty side-off before returning to the scene of Sunday's happy crime: Sebonac Inlet. "I think it's windier than yesterday" Mecox Sam said, and he was right. 4.2's were the...

Mary Lee Is In Town

Somebody: Who is Mary Lee? Somebody else: Great big shark. Somebody: The Jaws kind? Somebody else: Yup. Lord Scotworth The Earl of Kielt announced Mary Lee's presence this morning. Like clockwork (or calendarwork) this big fish returns to the waters...

The Bowl Takes My Fin (and lots of Bruce's gear...)

Six months to the day since my last wave sesh (when I got bit by a sea snake) I returned, 4.2 conditions at The Bowl. Only my second windsurfing session of the year so I was way out windsurfing shape...

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...
