The Grind

I asked RRD rider Sofien Sehiri to show some vulcans this Tuesday. There was very little wind, I am amazed he planed at all. (Clip that can be scrubbed frame-by-frame, with the full set of moves, is here – download and use a desktop video player).

When it Rains, it Rocks

Gusty as usual: best of Half Moon Bay’s wind from this morning:

Reach for the Sky!

Seeing on WRAMS a promise of improbable winds at this time of year, I promptly took a day off. Although 30kt average did not materialize, I was able to sail my 84L wave (and tack it twice). Never mind his messed up ankle, Kevin Kan delivered quite a performance. Team Crushpad (Dave) showed Aaron a thing or two about catapults :)

Crissy Field

I finally paid a visit to the awe-inspiring site to be respected. Libretto is here and here (I was way overpowered on the outside, though):

It was well worth it, 3hrs of traffic, mental blocks and all.

Powerlines

Saturday, May 30th. 27mph wind average + ebb. I need 15 more kilos on the belly or 15 less liters in the board!

The Fleet

With most of the bay shrouded in 3000ft-tall fog blanket, shining sun and steady WNW in Palo Alto made sailors appear in record numbers. What a day!

Huge holes, killer blasts, white-haired mogul swell. Happy Thursday!
