Phew- Alright- Here’s the week’s recap:
Early in the week, it was windy, and cold. It felt like winter, but Stuart, Justin, and I snagged the year’s first good Buxton Slick sesh! Booyah!! There’s no photo evidence, but it was sweet. How about a pic of Anne and Jenny de-rigging after their sunset sesh, instead:
Then the wind died but the swell was macking for a few days! Check out this video on Surfline to get an idea of the conditions!
Andy Brandt came to the shop for a THIRD FREE CLINIC on Wednesday! That has got to be some kind of record, we are hooking you guys up!! It was another good size crowd (50+), with topics ranging from The Sail Flip to The Shuv-It.
Then the swell faded and the wind hasn’t come back yet. Today was as flat and windless as it gets around here, and honestly kind of rare. All of the beach goers and everyone who owns a Standup Paddleboard is still loving life, though. Warm and sunny all day today!
I’m loving life, too, because a few 2010 World Sail Surges showed up at the shop this afternoon!! They are looking sweet, with a cool color scheme and some nice construction details like lots of x-ply, hemmed batten sleeves, and a heavy duty double thickness head cap strap (among lots of other things, of course). I rigged up the 4.2 and am pretty stoked with how it looks. Can’t wait to get some wind to try these sails out!!
And check out the sweet graphics on the Chinook Carbon Big Wave boom! Dang, lookin’ hot! Give me a call if you want to get your hands on one!
It looks like we might get some wind this weekend… C’mon out and join us!
