I'm Sponsored! Stoked!

RRD has always been the favorite board in my quiver to ride.

I'f you're a regular follower of Live2sail, you'll recall that 2009 was a break out year in that I unlocked the secret that is Assateague wavesailing. First and foremost: the spot offers a wide range of conditions, and you need gear that you'll have the confidence to take it out in and make work.
Well I'm super stoked to announce that I'll be riding exclusively on RRD gear (boards and sails) this year. I'm sooo excited about teaming with RRD as they are the boards that I've ridden succcesfully in exploring and learning how Assatague works. Check out the RRD web site. More details will be forthcoming as the season unfolds.

A huge thank you goes to Tony at A&O Sports, the North American Distributor of RRD Gear.
My new gear will be arriving sometime in March and I can't wait!
2010 is gonna be a GREAT year!!
cya in the straps!

Thxs all.
Hey paul, I sail out of the federal park-and I drive on the beach searching for a good setup. You need an annual permit do drive on the beach. They lomit the # of people that can drive onto the beach, so crowds, or fisherman, rarely get in the way.
All in all, azz can be world class when it fires! Oh, and yes you can camp on the beach, but I never have
