PWA Live Ticker

The PWA freestyle event in Lanzarote is going off at the moment. Lots of wind with the top freestylers in the world going head to head. I guess for someone who loves windsurfing, the PWA live ticker and video clips are as good as it gets for live coverage... a real shame that is all we get.

Definitely biased, but I just don't see how watching a lame-as baseball game can even compare to the action one can witness in the strong wind and waves. Sheesh! Get this stuff on prime time! And whatever happened to coverage by High.TV!

I am definitely a techy and love to figure out the tricks these pros are pulling. Probably the most insane thing has got to be Kiri Thode's Air Funnel. The trend seems to be to take some frickin' hard slidey freestyle moves and complete them in the air. I like it!!

Amongst those competing is Canada's own Phil Soltysiak. Tune in and cheer for Phil from the comfort of your office desk! Go Phil!!

Damn those summer doldrums

Yup, it is starting early. The summer doldrums. The endless weeks that go by without a decent session. This weekend is also the first of many hazy, smoggy, and humid periods to come. Synonymous with thermal killing.

Hate to publish negative posts... but sheesh! Give me a good session already! ARGH!!!

Time to brush up the geckos.

Costa Rica

It's booked. We are going. Seven weeks - Dec6 to Jan24. Stoked.

I've got a week-pass to get to Arenal and sail my ass off for 7 days straight. Cheers to honking conditions.
