So here’s the thing about good windsurfing photos of your self.
When you first start out…It’s a novelty. So you spend the money for a new Go Pro, or Soloshot.

You take the time to set up that Clew View, Mast, Boom, or harness mount.
Or you get that “New Girlfriend”. The one who actually stays with you at the beach once the wind arrives. I mean ‘WOW’. The day goes from a beautiful sunny day at the beach…to,,, sand blowing so hard it could and does peal the paint off your truck. Just standing at the beach is uncomfortable. But, she loves you, so she stays, and she takes pictures! God bless her.

Then, you move on to a new girlfriend, your girlfriend learns to windsurf, or you fall in love, and get married. You pick it. But she’s not taking photos of you anymore. Even if she does come out with you, she is smart enough to go hide in the van once the windspeed hits 20+.
This is why I am so appreciative when someone does snap a photo of me windsurfing. Even a bad one. [Meaning I’m sailing poorly.] The photo is great.

So it is for this reason that I’d like to thank Jill Illixer of “the Long Island Sun Chasers” group. As a windsurfer herself, she understands what she is shooting. So for the first time in a while, I can share some gratuitous pic’s of my self.
