Devon Roesch was sailing in the junior division and came in first

Right you are Pete...another Roesch for me to trail behind in defeat (congratulations, Devon!) I don't know what happened to the junior division info...will ask for it immediately.

Congrats to all the competitors! It makes all the planning worth while to see so many smiling windsurfers in one place. Congrats to all the winners!

I must admit, I was losing my stoke for windsurfing a while back. It's guys like Mike Burns and Michael Alex that have really helped in windsurfing's revival.

While I may still be a cranky old timer...I see new faces at Heckscher all the time now.

In fact, because of lite air, free style windsurfing's numbers are beginning to climb again.

Thanks guys

Thank you, Frank, though as I've said a dozen times before and I'm happy to repeat, watching you and Lorelei carve the first jibes I'd ever seen poured gasoline on my own stoke years ago!

I think Long Island windsurfing is growing because we're able to communicate, we've got so many good places to sail, and there are loads of great people with generous personalities on the water. We've got MC Thom helping create great events, we've got ABK coming three times per year, we've got a great windsurfing shop out east, we have a star in Mike Burns (and perhaps another coming with Jimi Sobeck) etc etc. And to your last point, wind snobbery is on the wane...a lot of guys are happy to get out there in 8 knots and play with tricks.

Hope to see you on the water soon!

    "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.
