You are wrong, you are not the wind sacrifice. I am. Let me demonstrate: Thursday: I taught until 2 PM. Watched and critiqued science research presentations until 3:45PM. Then, tutored from 4 to 5. Ran home to change, shave, and eat a banana. Then, parent-teacher conferences from 6 to 9. Result: apparently one of the windiest days of the past couple of years.
Today: ran down to the beach as soon as I could after school ended. Result:wind was dying as I was rigging. Got in two planing runs on 6.5 with my new Fanatic Ray 130 LTD that I got from Jon a couple of weeks ago. (really amazing board).
This coming weekend: not much wind forecast as I have nothing else to do.
Monday: wind comes up as I go back to work.
So, as you can see, it's me, not you.

okay Dennis we are partners in misery. I'd love to take a spin on that Ray if we"re ever on the water with wind together!

Michael, perhaps you are currently the wind sacrifice for the east end windsurfers, and I am the current wind sacrifice for the western Suffolk windsurfers.
Also, I was thinking that my wind problem began around the time I put the Naish in the van for the "windy" season!!

Hi Michael!

My name is Juan, and I am an avid follower of your blog. Last week we had some amazing conditions here in the Midwest, and as we sailed Montrose beach, we were photographed and actually made the news. I just wanted to share the stoke with you guys, because I know that East coast sailors can really appreciate a cold, wet, windy session :)

    "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.
