"Oh, Tiana!" Scott sings, though he's usually waxing lyrical about the ocean launch. But the user friendly and convenient Tiana Bay launch will be the site of ABK Boardsports windsurfing clinics this year, May 17-19. Tiana has many advantages for a Long Island windsurfing clinic:
-Lots of shallow water,
-Sailable in every wind direction,
-Loads of parking,
-15 minute drive to the windsurfing shop if you need something,
-40 minutes closer (if you're coming from west) than Napeague. Napeague was (and is) an excellent spot to windsurf, but I'm excited for ABK's triumphant return to their old Long Island clinic spot.
So sign up ASAP (don't get shut out...it's happened, as long time ABKers know). Here's a link for more info. ear, May 17-19. Just make sure you're there. Andy Brandt and his mighty crew are coming...
