Wetsuits!

It’s been windy, every day!  In the last post I made the claim that I hadn’t put on a wetsuit yet.  Well, yeah, that’s all changed.  I’ve been suited up every day since!  I had a few Lighthouse sessions, in pretty weak waves but it’s all good.  Here’s an image grab from some boom video:

See the Lighthouse in the background?

Yesterday was pretty solid, too, NNW in the AM so I went to the Hole and threw down some freestyle.  The crowds were building just as I had to leave, but I took a few little video clips of Andy Brandt, Dave C, and West Coast Meredith on my way out.

Speaking of Andy Brandt, he threw down a huge windsurfing clinic at the shop last night.  I counted over 60 people before everyone even showed up, at which point it was impossible to even try to count!  I’m stoked that everyone came out, it was a great time and I think everyone picked up a tip or two. Hopefully, they’re all out on the water trying some new tricks right now!!

The forecast is looking… interesting… ?  Keep an eye out for soundside flooding Thursday night/Friday morning…
