Weekend of Windsurfing and Kiteboarding

It's blowing about 10 knots and your formula windsurfing boom is broken. 48 hours of weekend yawns before you, and you have important work to procrastinate on. You:

a) Rig the biggest sail you can on your smaller boom, and ride a longboard
b) Put that sail on a shortboard and try bobbing for waves
c) Kiteboard
d) All of the above

If you answered "d", then you and I have very similar approaches to weekend management. This weekend's activities are documented in the two videos below, both shot with my gopro helmet hero wide camera and edited with windows movie maker. I finally learned how to add music... so you might take this moment to make sure you know where your "mute" button is.


Shortboard and Kiteboard

Good music. I still think when you get some high speed runs filmed you should try some blue grass tunes like Foggy Mountain Breakdown or Orange Blossom Special. Of course I realize that this opinion may date me. Perhaps blue grass isn't the hot music for modern wind sport guys.

I'm reserving Foggy Mountain Breakdown for when I get some footage of YOU doing high-speed windsurfing. How's that going, by the way? ;)

Watching the videos makes me glad that I'm here on Cape Cod.

I love the slurpy sound at the end of your kiteboarding adventure. Glad to know you have "doh" moments also.

Man, that smooth Kona sailing is what it's all about.
