Across these waters of Peconic and Shinnecock there shreds a small but fierce band of primal watermen known as the Windchimps. Public sightings of the chimps can be as rare as summer wind and waves, which is why last Sunday I nearly dropped my paddle on seeing 2 female standup paddle surfers in the lineup.
NOAA recently announced that no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found, but today I present photo proof of the elusive Chimpette! Knee-high waves and shorty weather seemed important to drawing her out. With the summer season hitting high gear, I'm hopeful we'll see more female aquatic humanoids catching their first SUP waves.
