Throwback Thursday Waveriding

I'm perhaps 9 years old here. Every summer we spent two weeks in Cape May, New Jersey. The highlight of each day on the beach was when there were waves...we'd take our inflatable "wave riders" out into the surf and...

Spring session 2017 on the membrane

It was about time to get a few more hours on the handcrafted 4G in 5,8m. The oriented sail from Challenger matches very well with the Starboard Flare 103. I can get into planing in the lightest gusts. Just a few sail pumps, a bit of extra pushing with the feet and I make it […]

Making the Cut

Cuts happen, especially in Chatham. I kite out to the newest one, stopping at the old cut on the way out and Stage Harbor on the way back. The beachscape changes quickly around here!

April Windsurfing Fools

"This meeting of the Eastern Long Island Wind Chimp Association will now come to order" Scott said. But nobody listened. Frank was already on the water. Christian and Kurt and Jeff were rigging. I was telling everyone who would listen...

The Nose Sink Hoss Tack

Good times, this move. One of my favorite nonplaning transitions, taught to me by ABK's Andy Brandt back in 2000. I saw the move, pointed, and said "teach me that!" He told me I wasn't ready, that I needed to...

My wife loves windsurfing in Bonaire. She’s the one who suggests the vacation each year. I say (I really say this) “we could take a non-windsurfing vacation.” I swear I actually say that. And she always replies “I want to...

Reason to Hate Mike Burns #341: Hydroplaning in Hatteras

There he is, wearing a shorty, hovering over the water as he windsurfs a foil on the Pamlico Sound. Mike Burns does it all, with a smaller sail and in warmer conditions that I ever do/rig/get. To quote Frank Messina:...
