The Black Shot...

A new move by Boujmaa - it's being called a crazy-pete into switch forward. Pretty neat stuff, but I'm not sure that he sticks any of these in the video (the attempt(s) start around 1:10) - rotation appears to be way out of control. It would be neat to see one landed!

Fall is here, and with it the winds!

Finally we are getting some sailing!! YEAH!

Last friday was decent 4.7 at Everitt on strong but gusty southerlies. Monday was solid 4.7 WSW at Ellerbeck. Fun stuff. I love the 4.7/105L Goya X1 combo - everything just seems easier when powered up on that sail & board. No luck on flakas, but the forwards were meaty and the spocks were flowing...

Good winds in the forecast too for Friday and Sunday. The Kingston Freestyle Jam is probably going to go this weekend, so that should be a fun time getting whooped by Phil Soltysiak and watching his switch and double wizardry.
