The other day my wife Rhonda graciously came to the beach with me after work to take some pictures of me windsurfing the 14' Fanatic Falcon SUP that I recently converted into a windsurf. I would have gotten some onboard video, too, but I loaned my GoPro to my graduate student a couple months ago and haven't gotten it back yet. Anyway, the pics are below. It was a day with disorganized knee-high waves and 5-10 knot side-offshore winds, fading to 0-5 knots. I used a 6.4 sail.
When the wind got to too light to get around with the sail I paddled for a bit. Man, trying to surf a race sup is hard. It's really tippy, it takes a long time to turn around, and when you do catch a wave it's hard not to crash. But it's fun.
