Swap Meet Next Saturday

I''m repeating it for good measure. And because I love swap meets! Windsurfing. Stand up paddling. Kiteboarding. Stuff to buy, to sell, to swap. I love swap meets. All that gear that's seen all that wind and water. Waves even!...

The Family That Sails Together

Liz Patton posted this photo of Mike Burns and chickadees in Cape Hatteras on Facebook. Had to repost it!

4.2 and a Thief at The Bowl

4.2! Giant airs! Four turn front-side down the line waveriding! I missed it, but Jeff didn't. Nor did Scott, the Wolf, Jon, Pav, Bruce and Eric. It sounded so sweet...I haven't sailed in the ocean in six months, and haven't...

Up and Down

Another Saturday at Sebonac. Scott Jeff Kurt and yours truly (me later to be swapped out for Frank and Joe) on 5-somethings and all kinds of boards. I started with the 5.5 on my 109...then the wind picked up, so...

Spring Session M

My first local sesh since mid-November! Plagued by minor surgery, a dinged back, and the Winter That Froze Over Hell, it had been awhile for your humble editor. But the dry spell is done! 4.2 at Sebonac Inlet: Scott, the...

Windsurfing Swap Meet May 9th

Windsurfing. Stand up paddling. (cough) Kiteboarding. Stuff to buy, to sell, to swap. I love swap meets. All that gear that's seen all that wind and water. Waves even! The details: Hampton Watersports, Saturday May 9th, 9A-4P. Swapping is free,...

East Coast Windsurfing Festival Dates Announced

Lord Burns has spoken: June 6th and 7th! "Pencil in the dates" he wrote in Facebook. Yeah well we'll write them in sharpie, and fix it later as kneed bee. "Cause the East Coast Windsurfing Festival is the bee's knees!

Some Waves Are Way Too Big For Me To Sail, Too.

Another day, another wave that I would need to pass on. Robby Naish posted this picture on Facebook a few days ago (photographer credit is Tracy Leboe). In his post Robby said "It was not a huge day, but the...

Paddle Paddle Paddle!

Oh man does he want to make it over the lip. Submitted to the Puffin by Dr. Pain, original source unknown.

Wave Sailing Aruba?

Wave sailing Aruba. Yeah I said it. Check out this photo of the mighty Jeroen Weststrate tearing up Westpunt, Aruba. Also check out the photo credit in the lower right corner: Dasher Films. Methinks something special is afoot down Aruba...

When The Water Is Hard

The Mighty Mike Burns recently queried the Long Island windsurfing forum thusly: "Liquid water?" What's a waterman or waterwoman to do with all this ice? I had a great seven days in Bonaire last month (more reports coming) but I...

Next to Last Day, Bonaire Windsurfing Vacation

Friday morning. Light rain. I have developed a sore back from I don't know what (the beachside masseuse says the chop has been rough on people's backs. The beachside masseuse...yeah I said it.) So I am in pain. But it's...

Brag Sesh, Bonaire

One of the great truths of windsurfing is that nobody sees your best moments. It’s very rare. Even rarer if you’re me, with so few bests to witness! This day was to be an exception. Day Two of our Bonaire...

Windsurfer, Be My Valentine!

Ladies, are you still searching for that special someone? Consider looking amongst the windsurfers: 10. The ratio of men to women is 4 to 1. 9. They can talk about something besides football. 8. They don’t smell too bad because...

Snowpocalypse Snowmageddon Is Coming! Weep with fear...

It's just one big hashtag out there, as forecasters try to come up with names for what I suppose will be a very big snow. A blizzard. "Like nothing we've ever seen" the NYC Mayor has been said to have...

Chimps Get Some At Sebonac

Peconic Jeff reports on this January 5th sesh: "4.2 session at Sebonac: myself, George Pav (pictured), Scott, the Wolf and whoever else showed up after I left. Temps in the 30’s, gusts in the 40’s, and a passing snow shower...

New Year's Resolutions, 2015

For nary a decade I've been posting New Year's Resolutions for the coming water year. The lists have varied from long and detailed to "the unaimed arrow never misses" (no resolutions...just sail.) This year I want some goals. Here they...

Wave Envy

Jeff Schultz captured at Nauset Beach (MA) a few days ago. Looks like my 2014 season is over, but I'm hoping to get back on it in January! In the meantime I'll look at this photo and dream. Photo swiped...
