We are all attracted to speed. At least initially, it is the sensation that draws us to Windsurfing. There was a time when my quiver was made up of fast parallel railed speed boards, and 7 batten , 5 camber speed sails. It was fast, but virtually imposable to jibe.
My quiver is more geared towards control, and waves today. You could call it more user friendly. So while I might not search out flat water speed locations…speed has one thing going for it. Sustainability; While that wave ride might actually last a few seconds… you can go fast for minutes.
Next up; The King of Stoke Iggy is back. Launching from Da Bronx. To a song used about guys from Queens. I see he is on some new sails, but still using a 25 year old board, and making it look like it just came out of some Maui shaper’s room yesterday.
Plus, if you have seen my films; they are all from the same POV. Iggy has come up with some really cool and innovative GoPro mounts.
And last but not least... the former Whitbread now Volvo guys, It's amazing what a couple million Euros can buy ya'.
