Honestly, I don't know anyone who actually races a windsurfer more than once a year.

A decent forecast tool.

Thank goodness, the Lifeguards still let us surf, even though the beaches were technically closed to swimmers. I understand how hard it must be to tell the general public, "you can't go in the water...but they can, because they are surfers and know what they are doing"

Same story; different day. I live less than a block from the water. But I can't windsurf or swim there because it's too filthy with all the run off from your beautiful lawn.

Of course yesterday"s waves at Long Beach were the biggest and steepest I've ever ridden. So Yes, the waves were not as nice as last weeks surf but they were still big, and clean. I hardly think anyone would describe them as weak.

We all have to get in on the Fall Regatta so we can change that racing number to 2x/year!

I have to find an old Longboard. I can't believe I sold all my longboards. What was I thinking?

The swapmeet is coming (next Saturday). Despite K-Dog hating on the thing it's actually quite good, and there are often longboards there. I've had good luck this year asking what "the low price" on swapmeet gear is, and have made some real scores. So come pick up a longboard and join the madness.

I still can picture you out on the Peconic on your Mistral (I think an Equipe) jibing with Steve Marks! First planing jibes I ever saw.
