Breaking News

Break Dancing has been approved as an Olympic sport. Really? Just when you thought the Olympics could not possibly be a bigger joke. So, does windsurfing really, really want to be in the Olympics????? I guess people who can't get tickets to break dancing can watch windsurfing. Or they could just go to a street corner in most major cities and see it for free.

There is no off season.

Re: Breaking News

That Seabreeze thread on the 2024 Olympics is pretty entertaining. A lot of strong feelings about which board should join Break Dancing in 2024.

Uh, Webguy, we don't start a war with Aussies now, do we? They probably think that's what we all look like. Well, at least the rest of you guys.

You mean the army that literally lost a war to a bunch of birds? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emu_War

(I kid, the Aussies have been tremendous from Gallipoli onwards. When you live in a place where everything is either poisonous or will eat you whole, you don't take crap from anyone. )

Re: Breaking News

Here is the perfect compromise for the board/sail combo for the Olympics. Both the old and new school boys should love it. Plus, I think it will fit in with the retro vibe from Break Dancing.
