That ice windsurfing video from Maine is really great, those jibing tacks or whatever they are, are about the coolest maneuver in windsurfing.

A lot of monkey jibes in that video. Regular jibes don't work when moving much faster than the wind.

Well, we called them monkey jibes, I see Royn is calling it a donkey jibe? And calling what I thought was an Essex a monkey jibe... http://www.roynbartholdi.com/windsurfing/maneuver-descriptions Maybe someone with a tricktionary can set me straight.

Do people still do this? Those guys made it look pretty amazing.

Every chance we get! That was a great day with nearly perfect conditions and a large turnout. The short track figure 8 racing around the cones gets pretty thrilling.

It looks like we could get a stretch of good ice sailing starting later this week.
