Haha! What a world indeed. Thanks for winding me up that much tighter all the morning of. FOMO with a vengeance.

April was so beautiful.

Maybe next time you can take the camera out with you to get some helicopter pov shots?

Roosy/Arlington was pretty gnarly in the late AM... Broke 3-4 of my %$@!$@#! ribs when I failed to unhook on a jump and landed on my boom... See you in 4-6 weeks... I'll have time to edit some POV nonsense with all my couch time... Have fun out there... unhook for those big jumps!!!

OK, here's some POV stuff from 4/29, nothing too crazy but good swell perspective. Unfortunately the camera crapped out before the big bad jump that busted my ribs... see y'all in July!!!

I'm tellin' ya ...



In two full seasons with mine now, I've been slammed into the booms hooked in countless times, landed big jumps flat on my back, and simply don't care.

What's a few hundred bucks ($300 plus custom mods for windsurfing, such as more armhole room for for sprinting after your gear) compared to broken ribs, potentially fatal liver or kidney impacts, lost months or seasons, etc? It's light, flexible, just the right amount of flotation, and very highly adjustable to fit a wide variety of shapes. You can choose from dozens of color combinations, and mine has not faded at all in two seasons. I had them send me the right size, wore it in the living room to see what changes I wanted for WSing, sent it back with notes, and had them build just what I wanted.

Remember: If you've stopped crashing, you've stopped learning.

Can you use a waist harness with it?
