Today was awesome... people here told me over and over again "GO TO PLUMB BEACH" but I never listen (that is one of the reason why Iam here today in USA.. hahahaha)

So, with all hurry to get there, I forgot bring my mast base and extension,.. but a good soul.. a good windsurfer soul... come to my rescue and save my day... DO YOU IMAGINE AFTER 1h BIKING WITH THIS TRAILER REALIZE IT WAS FOR NOTHING?... So..,there was George,this russian guy save me with his kindness (something really commune between windsurfers) And I also meet others windsurfers that where surprise that I had build such "thing" and used to caring my gears to the beach...

My saing is:... IF YOU REALLY WANT SOMETHING.... NEVER STOP CHASING IT,NO MATHER WHAT.

hOPE ENJOY THE PICTURE!!!!!!!

PS:I should open a business and build this bike trailers... ah????...hahahaha

Dude, you are an inspiration! How far do you pedal
to get to the beach? You had alot of courage to sail
from Cuba to Fla, so I guess everything else is a
piece of cake.

Forget NYC and come to live in Boston. You would be able to pedal that
thing to the beach (Pleasure Bay) in 5 minutes.
And there are a few Russian windsurfers over there in case
you forget something again Smile

that's plain badass! I definitely imagined it much differently when you first mentioned it. Fortunately, I have a very efficient little civic and I can strap just about anything on the roof of that thing.

With that, I'm quite excited to go Friday night and possibly Saturday.

I know most people imagine a bike trailer defferent.. but check this, that is the only efective desing you can imagine that use the less ammunt of materials and at the same time use less space at the time to storege,and have to be light and easy way to desamble. So.., it come out in this...

This is already my 3rd time that I build a trailer.. but this is the first time that i had to consider the "space issue" of this city of NY...

But it works perfect..., and also my girlfriend is not to angry with my for been usin her hause has nautical station... hahahahaha

sweet deal dude. I live up in the boonies in Burlington, VT...now that's a green city you want to live in! Bike paths everywhere, beautiful mountains, not much traffic and a TON of space. We don't have the ocean, but Lake Champlain is not bad.

You are about as cool as they come, Ray. The story about windsurfing over from Cuba was fabulous, true or not!!

If you ever make it up to Cape Cod to windsurf, I'm good for a lobster dinner. Plus if you need any old equipment, I have a bunch of stuff in my garage and I would be happy to help you out. gigglewithme@hotmail.com

Well my friend... is so true... that the next issue of windsurfing magazine (July) got 2 pages of this and more... but I tell you more... I got the all tripulation of the COAST GURD USS CONFIDENCE of April 22th 2004 (around 4pm of that day) ...I know is hard to get information from the coast guard... but if you know somebody or some way... here I just give to you all the info that you may need to check that...

I know...., sometime... not even I believe it.
