Peconic Jeff's Photography Coming to Easthampton Show

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...

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.....

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...
