To the windsurfer who would be a better windsurfer:
If you're assuming that you're going to take one of the upcoming ABK Boardsports windsurfing clinics at Napeague 9/23-25 and 9/30-10/2, you'd best be registered already, as they're currently showing only 3 slots left in the first clinic and 5 in the second. There are even ABK veterans who believe that if they show up on clinic day with cash on hand that they'll be able to participate, but I'm here to tell you I've seen Andy Brandt turn people away on several occasions.
Here's the good news: When ABK gets a bunch of people registering a week before a clinic, they bring in extra instructors and add a bunch of new slots.
Earlier this year the spring ABK clinic was cancelled due to lack of registrations. Afterwards it turned out there were plenty of Long Islanders who had been planning on taking the clinic but just hadn't gotten around to signing up. There were disappointed people then, and there could be disappointed people in the coming weeks if they don't sign up.
So sign up!!! You know you want to. The first clinic will include a group just for people who want to focus on racing (look for notice here about upcoming Long Island fall windsurfing races) and the second will include a similar freestyle group.
