Wave Sailing at Ponquogue Beach and the Bowl - May 3rd, 2008

Side-shore wave sailing at Ponquogue Beach and the Bowl at Shinnecock Inlet in Hampton Bays, Long Island, NY. Conditions started with low tide and small, sloppy waves on 5.8 - 6.2 and big boards, and grew 6 hours later to 4.7 on small boards, dodging (or not) the shore break at high tide. Personally I've been attacking the waves more aggressively, and saw several others out there pushing themselves as well (George Pav). Special thanks to my girlfriend Chiaying, who bundled up against 20-30+ mph easterly (read "cold") wind and blowing sand, for shooting the video. For a much more colorful and complete description of the day, check out the post on the Peconic Puffin.

I lived in Southampton from 1970 to 1974. I remember Ponquogue, the Bowl and Threes, and shorebreak that could knock you down at 2 ft at Cooper's and Flying Pt.

It was great to watch your real world wave sailing video.
