One of the many thrills at last weekend's East Coast Windsurfing Festival was the chance to see a PWA champion sail. We saw Josh Angulo's mindblowing speed in the races, we saw a Very Large Loop...it was a treat!
But blogger James Douglas gives us a unique perspective. James put on a helmet with a GoPro camera attached, took an overpowered spin on a new board and rig, then handed off both the gear and the helmet to Josh for him to sail. The difference in observed speed is as radical as it was during the event. Check it out! Note that you can turn it off 3 minutes in unless you want to see me walk up to Mark and introduce myself. Had I know the camera on his head was on I'd have fixed my hair.
Here's the video. You may also want to check it out in its original context on James' blog.
(This probably concludes coverage of last weekend's event. If you've somehow come upon this post unexposed to our previous chatter and wish to subject yourself to it, check out the 2011 East Coast Windsurfing Festival reports one, two, and three.)
