Cold Weather Is Coming-Time To Suit Up

I wore my new Mystic 5/3 Crosfire Steamer, and was very impressed with the performance.
the material is strong, flexible, and I especially found the inner neck collar/seal to be very effective.
Take it from some one who sails all year round, these suits are very effective at keeping you warm and on the water


Happy Halloween Session

Sunday is Halloween, and that also happens to be my birthday. I’m hoping for a repeat of last year's epic session on my birthday.
......and looking at the forecast, sunday looks pretty solid, so bring it on...

Here is the coolest house decorated for Halloween that I've ever seen. If I was a kid, that would scare the heck out of me!

haunted house for sure

RRD Wave Cult 90 ltr

Today I sailed at the Secret Spot, lit on a 5.3 Super style and the RRD Wave Cult 90.
The wave cult 90 performed great as a bump and jump board. The NW winds where super gusty, and she planed up nice an quick, easily handling the lulls.  Gybing off of the outside swell was sooo much fun..
....and despite my assurances to myself that I would take it nice and easy today and not jump that much, I did blast some pretty high aeriel's. The 90 felt great in the air
If you always sail at your same spot, you'll never know what you're missing..
Every now and them, step out on faith and try a new spot
Wrap up to another awesome day of sailing on the Delmarva
Weekend looks good!

The RRD Wave Thruster is a new fast and early planning board that feels secure as a single fin but “turny” and radical as a surfboard

and it wont be long cuz..

Delmarva Water Temps Warming Up

Got out again today, this time down at Tower Road.. Not really all that windy....but.....any day of sailing is a great day of sailing....

clew first-switch stance-sup sailing
We've had several consecutive days with temps in the 70s. The water temperature at the shallow water venues closely parallel the air temps, so it doesn't take much to get the water temps back up into board short territory
Looks like we have several more days of sailable conditions, especially tomorrow.
Stoked cuz I have a new Wave Cult and a Wave Thruster arriving tomorrow.

Sam, can you make it out? I think the North end of the inlet tomorrow afternoon may be the call...

Autumn Foliage On The Delmarva

Not quite full color Yet, but almost!
water is still warm here
and crystal clear blue
I was just standing there, allowing the wind to blow me accros the pond, when I noticed this turtle floating out in front of my board, checking me out. As I brought the camera to bear, I startled him and he dove for cover under the bed of see grass.  Can you see him there off to the right? He was diving for cover.. Click on the picture to enlarge to full screen...
so many ponds, canals, rivers to explore by SUP here in Delaware
Water is very clear this time of year. From the standup perspective, you're at the perfect vantage point to really check things out and get up close to nature

the water depth here is about 5 feet

I love saw grass
Come out and try one of our eco-tours... Our latest eco-tour is the Oyster Rocks to Milton Paddle. A 10 mile guided paddle down the lazy Broadkill river, ending up in Milton for lunch and perhaps a tour of historic Milton.
Delmarva Board Sport Adventures, leading the way on the Delmarva for windsurfing and standup paddle board rentals, sales, and eco-tours.

Come stroke it with us this fall. Now is a great time to learn to windsurf and standup paddle board!

ps-solid forecast this week, and it all looks to line up for a wave sailing session beginning Monday afternoon. Stoked!
