yes, INCREDIBLE picture

The weird thing about ice sailing pictures is that you can't tell if someone is going 100 miles an hour or just standing there, because there's no spray or wake.

WOW that's a fantastic shot! Such an alien looking landscape too. Well done!!!

We got some ice sailing in on cape cod this past weekend. There are a couple of freeskates here. A few of us have home made boards with a plywood deck and wide or modified skate board trucks. Riding the ice is great for fast jibes, duck jibes and laydown 360. I have seen some videos of airel flakas but not trying that.

Peter, how well do the homemade boards work? And what are you using for blades? It would be great if you posted some photos online of your homemade ice gear.

The home made boards work really well. The deck is not as big as a free skate. ABout 4' long and 12 =15" wide. A wide skate board truck is good. or you can also use a mountian board. Blades are 1/4"x2" steel about 10-12" long. We hand grind them to a v. The sand smooth with 320 of finer grit.
I can take a photo tonight and will post some where accessable.

I love it!

I posted some photos on iwindsurf eastern forum

Pete always was the winter daredevil..I cannot believe I used to sail with he and Gil and Jerry in the snow..

Mike, We will be out at Belport again this weekend. Hope to see you there. I posted up a Vid on my blog that Scot Y took there last Sunday.
