NJ Trip Summer 2021

Made a trip to NJ to visit family late July into early August. Was able to get a couple of good days windsurfing on the bay. First day was outstanding 6.0/85 L and the second was good 7.5/115 L. Also got to try wing foiling for the first time in salt water, both in the bay and the ocean. The ocean was definitely intimidating even though the swell was very small. With a side-off wind(more off than side) the wind became quite a bit stronger the further offshore you went. There was also a small wind swell from the north that wasn't noticeable from the beach that made heading south challenging due to increased likelihood of breaching. In total, I winged 2 days on the bay and 2 days on the ocean. Also got out kayaking a few times and a couple of days surfing. Overall it was a good trip.


Costa Rica 2021

In April, 2021 Barrett & Peggy traveled to Costa Rica, including a four-day stop to windsurf at Lake Arenal. After being postponed for over a year due to the COVID Pandemic, we were really looking forward to the trip. Lake Arenal is on a continental divide between the Atlantic and Pacific where wind funnels through a low point in the mountains. The result is epic conditions for windsurfing on Lake Arenal from December into May. Water temperature averages 72ºF throughout the year.

Maui 2020

Hello from Columbia Gorge,
Sophie and I decided to get away from the NW fall rain/cold so we escaped to Maui for a bit. It was really fun to stay right near the North Shore beach (Spreckelsville) and windsurf mostly at Kanaha and a bit of Ho’okipa.
