Hey Dudes and Dudettes! Greeting from sunny Avon, North Carolina, where I am participating in the Windsurfing Magazine freeride board tests for 2011. We have an awesome batch of boards here. These are just some of them...
More importantly we also have an awesome batch of people here, notwithstanding several Canadians. Andy McKinney, the owner of the "Wind NC" watersports store, filmed some of us at dinner the other day.
Today is our one "light wind" day of the week. I got planing this morning on a big board with an 8.5 sail, but it seems to have tapered off a bit since then. Sunday was super windy (25-35 mph) and monday was pretty windy, too (10-20 mph), so we're not missing it real bad. The rest of the week is supposed to nuke. If it was just a little warmer it would be perfect.
I'll post some helmet camera windsurfing action videos pretty soon.
