Memorial Recap

Long weekend! Wind! Waves! Forecast rain! Surprise sun! Steered well clear of the bay under threat of catapulting open mouthed into poop. Imagine that, poop in the mouth! Ewwwwwwww.

3 days straight at Packery. Unprecedented. Sunday was the best direction but Monday was oozing fun-ness. We got some iphone clips and might try to make a video. Bird was good too with a bunch of people out. We pulled up Monday to see Brian Miller busting a perfect clew first spock 540 in front of the cheering crowds. Unfortunately we didn't get it on video but here is one of Randy doing a regular one-one handed:

 
 Jack was ripping too:


It did finally rain, a lot! But with only 10 miles to home we made it back safely. Julie took this photo from the end of our street:

Happy Mothers Day!

We had some fun Sunday morning making this iphone 'Trailer' with the kids. It's a bit cheesy but what the heck.

Another great windsurfing weekend with good friends including a 4.0 Bay session, 4.8 dawn session in scary onshore waves and some Bird Island frivolities thrown in too.

Spring Sprang

For a brief couple of weekends, then it got a bit cold, it rained and the wind disappeared.

But let me tell you about one session in Corpus bay. It was TOO MUCH FUN! Fully powered on 4.4, with nice steep ramps. I went for a couple of backies but after over-rotating onto my back I decided I was actually trying pushies instead. Psyched!! PUSHIES!! I guess if we had days like that all the time, they wouldn't be so special.

Then the week after we got a fun sesh at Port A with over a dozen people on the water. Small waves but nice 4.4 wind. Enes and Olivier were going for Takas and Julie got one of Oliviers attempts on tape:

Those guys rip. She also captured me boosting an endo. Watch it with sound, it's funny. :-)

Oh and during one of the many windless moments, I ordered another board. It's like we were made for each other, I was just in denial for the last few years. Fingers crossed my KT83 will arrive before the late season cold front that we all deserve.
