Windsurfing is Educational

In addition to providing a physical and mental challenge that can help one grow as a person, windsurfing can serve as a metaphor for other aspects of life. Witness this animated banner ad for Chinook mast-base extensions and universal joints. (May not be visible in FireFox.)

Haha, before I even read what you wrote it was obvious! Good stuff.

That's probably the least sexy "sex sells" ad I've ever seen! Remember their carbon boom ad from a few years back? That one was WAY hotter!

Aaron- I see we're both attuned to same, sophisticated, intellectual humor.

Andy- Oh yeah, I remember that ad. With the tanned and toned women in a sweaty tug-of-war over the boom in front of a rocky desert outcropping suggesting a prehistoric or post-apocalyptic scene. Classic. :)
