Wow, just an amazingly warm day for late December. Had to be pushing 70. No gloves, and no Hat! Every one showed up by 1pm, but for the first session around 10am, it was just James and I.
Wind Graph from Dewey. Lit 5.0 conditions.
Here are a few shots of the action before the wind filled in. We are riding our big boards for this sesh
We both rigged 5.0 and they happen to be identical colors. I love my RRD.
Still working on those heli-tacks. Not so dialed today
Time to come in and get the smaller board
Change of fin too
When the wind filled in, these guys got their strings all jimmy jacked up
Windsurfing on the other hand comes with no strings attached. Sorry, had to get that dig in.
2nd session on smaller boards! Rock N Roll!
I was sailing out of my gybes clew first today. Its alot of fun!
Stan Iwamoto showed up just in time for the fun
Stan and James
Stan was ripping today
So much more fun when there are others out to share the wind!
I watched a Peter Hart Freestyle video last night so today I.....
worked on letting go with the front hand during gybes
Tons of port ramps.....my jumpin side
Clew first again
fully layed out swan dive
I wore my drysuit, and lemme tell you, i was way overheated. In fact, i looked forward to the times I'd fall in, and i was purposely dunking my head to get a flush of cold water thru that suit. Amazing.
A few others showed up, that i don't know who they where.
I think this is Jules. I believe his wife Donna was out there too
It was easily 4.0 at this point, and pushing 70 degrees, on December 28th!
So all in all, a fantastic day of winter time sailing here on the Delmarva. Full on stoked to get back out here again this week. New Years Day historcally has been a pretty windy day, so I'm anxious to see 2009!
Actually, Tuesday and Wednsday look insane! Bring it on.
