Change name of Windsurf to Sailsurf.......,.

The term "Windsurfing" might excite more newcomers if the term were to be switched to "Sailsurfing." I say this for two reasons: 1) Sailsurfing visually places a sail to a surfboard. With Windsurfing, some people just can't figure out "how can you surf the wind on just a boa...

Re: Quetzalcoatl Contact?

Greetings Hutch: Great to hear from you. I'm still enjoying your Ezzy 8.0 Freeride sail. But I don't think you are giving up windsurfing completely because you didn,t include your 8.5 Ezzy Cheetah on your for sale list. My current cell phone is 507-261-1901. Safe Journeys. Eric. AKA----Quetzacoatl.

Yo, Quetzalcoatl, DID sail on Friday, March 1st, 2024. I launched from Roadside Park two miles upstream from Lake City. All open water and I never had a "lull" moment. Air was real warm, fingers never felt cold. I had my Dry-suit on, Hood and 6mm thick booties. Dakine Mitts with a big hole...

Pete, are you sailing tomorrow, Thursday? Where? Are you bringing your 85 liter Pocket Tabou?

I'm sailing tomorrow, either Waseca or Cannon. Waseca, a bit stronger and longer. Cannon probably more fun.

Winds are slowly coming back. 10ish wind speed SAt. sun. and MOnday will be 18ish! Get out there and sail hard!! Sail SO hard you break a ...

I never got skunked this summer of 2023....

Well, one way to NOT get skunked is not to go Windsurfing. But,,,I can't do that.

As frustrating as this summer has been I CAN say that of the Only seven times I've gone sailing, I never once got skunked.
I was planning every time I went. So There you have it.

Yeah,,,,it's not uncommon to get trapped briefly under the sail when ya fall in. And usually it's just a matter of swimming out from under the sail. But this time....(as I mentioned in a previous post), I was wearing a tight N-95 (with the two rubber bands around my head) and once in the water this ...

Re: windsurfing sails, booms, masts to give away

Hi Grant: I inadvertently slipped on the Keyboard and gave you ONE wrong number of my cell phone.
It is 261 (not 262).....So, it's (507) 261-1901.
Thank you.
Eric from YOUR original hometown. (yeah!) I really would like that Blast board!
