Bowl Wave Sailing video - May 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.



Watch on Youtube or downloadable Quicktime file (better resolution and larger size).

Great video, Jeff! Full props to Chiaying who did indeed stand in blowing sand and wind all day to shoot this.

Nice wave ride, by the way...that was the run I mentioned to you on the beach!

Puffin is right. Not only you guys have pushed yourselves to the next level on wavesailing (I remember watching you guys at Ponquogue last time and for the first time just last summer), but this video totally has a new spirit to it, too! Excellent action with airy jumps and smooth wave riding as well as a humorous tone... Great editing! Bundling up in the cold easterly wind (read "looking like a nomad wrapped in man's gloves, hat and jacket") to take it all in is no doubt worth it!

Jeff, What a great vid! You "east enders" have some great terrain and the ability to enjoy it.

Thanks Frank, maybe we'll see you out here for a future storm? The forecast this Monday is for upper 20's to low 30's from the E / ENE, which could be a HUGE day for Ponquogue and the Bowl!
