2015 Season Kickoff
Windsurfing Blog - Windsurf Sessions
Tuesday, 03 March 2015 02:42

I kicked off the 2015 season with an awesome session at Crissy Field.  Normally, I would have taken my FreeWave 75 and Legend 4.2, but I had a brand new Skate TE 85 I wanted to use, so I paired it with Maui Sails Loco 4.4.  I was a little OPd at times, but the wind was a little gusty, and it was nice to have the extra power and float.  A few of us traded off wearing the helmet cam, and my friend James put together a little video of the sesh and the day before which features possibly the first windsurfing drone footage from the Bay Area

 
New Windsurfing Videos Berkeley and Candlestick

Just thought I'd take a minute to share a couple videos.  Our friend Alex Dunkel, who is visiting from Germany, is a photographer with a new video-capable DSLR, and has started putting together videos.  Alex has a great eye and a nice feel, and he captured two nice days on the Bay.  You can also follow him at:

This first video is from the windiest day I've ever seen at Berkeley.  We were holding a Maui Sails clinic and demo at the Cal Sailing Club, and all hell broke loose.  Guys were mostly on 3.7's to 3.3's...  luckily there were some demo sails all the way down to 2.9!  

This next video is from a typical day at Candlestick.  "The Stick" is much maligned for it's seedy environs and gusty wind.  Suffice it to say that we love this spot, and it's the Bay Area hotbed for freestyle.

 

 
What Good Quality Wind Looks Like

Hit the water at about 3pm to a strong SW wind about 25 mph.  I was very powered on 4.8/100l, and I started to get OPd.  Then the wind took a dump at 4pm to pretty much zero.  What's not reflected in the graph is that what little wind there was was now coming from NE... a 180 degree clock.  Sails dropped like flies, and most people started swiming.  Luckily Bucky from Cal Adventures gave me a lift on the skiff back to the dock.  On days like this, I usually wait several minutes on my board for the wind to clock back to the normal direction before I begin swimming back to the dock, which would have worked on this day if I hadn't gotten a ride.  Actually, if I hadn't gotten a ride, I would've waited out the lull and probably gotten an extra hour of sailing in.  Oh well, no complaints here.

We had a fun day skate sailing at Ocean Beach.  It's been a fairly lean winter as far as windsurfing goes, but luckily we still have the beach and boards courtesy of Jean at www.streetsailing.net
