About as sublime as a tap

...on the chin from Mike Tyson.

No windsurfing today. Above my pay grade. Big dogs on 4.0/3.7s. Really good windsurfers on as small as 3.3. Wings 2.8 -3.

Dimitri went out for a single run on a 3.7 before it really cranked. His take: ten years ago it would have been fun. Today, I just can say I went out and came back

One on the front row lost its thatch, though. They are built pretty tough. About a 4 inch main wooden pole, heavy wire framework and heavy straw thatch.

Today was more moderate and a lot of fun. Took a 4.0 and 78l board. Decided to call it a day and grab a late lunch after waterstarting istraight into the footstraps a few times.

Cool to see all the gear. Mostly people are using multi fins in these conditions (except freestylers)with some brands and customs we don't see often or at all in the states.

Last day here and Dimitris arranged a great forecast. It was blowing 40 kts this morning and supposed to increase. Went out on a 3.7 briefly and then 3.4. Very gusty so called it a day. I'm told it's not common to have so many windy days in a row so feel grateful

Now that I'm back and have a higher speed connection, a few action shots from Dimitris

Oh, to be clear. I'm only in the bottom two!
Lol

The windsurfing made it a very good adventure. The great friendships created made it amazing. I can't say enough about the kindness and hospitality extended to me by Dimitris and everyone else.
