You just made me snort my lunch! Rice and broccoli up the nose. My 5.7 gets around an awful lot, too... But she's magically powerful over me, so I don't really care what a ho she is! More power to her!

Nice pictures! Why do you call the JP freestyle a "cheater board"? Planes too early? Too easy to sail?

I learned the expression "cheater board" years ago to describe a board that is oversized and exceptionally friendly for a given sail size. A board that makes you look better than you are. For me I can do some tricks with that combination (donkey jibes, for example) that are otherwise very challenging, so it's definately a "cheater" setup for carving freestyle. (Obviously there is no way to "cheat" in windsurfing...if you're dry, you're good!)
Re the photos, Jeff is the man! Check out his Flickr page for all sorts of fine photography.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
