Robby Naish Autographed Windsurfing Van

Ya'll remember when Robby Naish was here on the East Coast back in 2008?
I was fortunate enough to meet up with him at the Canadian Hole, and he autographed my windsurfing van.

Solid WNW At Secret

Another day of just awesome sailing here in Delaware. Sailed solo at the secret spot again. Lit 5.3 conditions: half the session on the 90 ltr wave cult, and the other half on the 76 way thruster.

WNW is pretty much dead side shore at the secret spot, if you time it right with the tide the jumps are just amazing. The only downside is that when there is any west in it, it can be very holy on the inside. It's not that really much of a big deal however, cuz it's not that far off the beach before the wind fills in, and you're blasting, headed for the breakers and that first aerial
Show time 
Steve, great to meet you again today and stay in touch.
Another magnificent Delaware sunset

I'm Thankful

Yeah I scored my Holiday sesh today. Sailed alone at the Secret Spot. Lit 5.3 on the 90 ltr Wave Cult.
This spot is so much fun on a NNW. Full power side on conditions, a veritable Jump-a-palooza. Today I kept it reasonably conservative, and just blasted back-n-forth over the rolling swell. I actually sailed out thru the Cape May Ferry shipping channel, all the way to the lee of the break wall. Such a nice contrast. On any given reach, you'll be boosting aerials off the inside sand bar just off the beach, then negotiate the psycho shop on the outside resulting from being out there on the wrong tide, but upon approach of the channel, the swell develops allot more wavey characteristics. Very steep, with big, clean, predictable faces. Ahhhhhh that is sooo much fun to play in. The only risks being that it is quite a ways out there, perhaps 3 miles, However given the side on conditions, you'll eventually get blown back to the beach, just not the same one you launched from.  Once you blast thru the channel, you come to the leeward side of the break wall, and thats a flat as the baby pool, and its gybe city. Full Gs',, lots of the spray, flip the sail, adjust your eyes cuz you're now sailing into the sun  which is low in the western sky, set the fin and blast back to the beach..
The view looking west 
Time to pack it up 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Skate Sailing....

...is a blast. and a great way to get a sail in your hands when the wind is less than what it needs to be to get out on the water. You'll be amazed at the tricks you can do, and the moves you can learn on a skate board with that old and battered storm sail. All you need to do is attach and old universal to the front of your long board, and rig up that tiny sail thats collecting dust in the corner of your garage with some old rig components that are probably also lying around, and you're good to go!

Standup Paddle The Broadkill River

Sunday I took my RRD  Cruiser Classic and paddled the Broadkill River. I launched at Milton and came in at Steamboat landing.

I launched around 2 pm, and pulled into Steamboat Landing around 4. Lo tide was around 2.30ish
This section of the river was sheltered from the wind, water is nice and glassy....perfect for standup paddle boarding-one long pull with my carbon paddle and it was glide city
plenty of hunting blinds along the river 
passed a few villages along the way 
Wide open spaces 
You can clearly see the high water mark 
Destination Delmarva 
Crossing under Route 1 
Sun getting low in the sky behind me 
Almost there now 
Get out here and enjoy our beautiful state 
There is my ride, right on time
