ABK Windsurfing Clinic at Napeague - Sept 2007

The ABK clinic this past weekend was a success, despite the mostly light winds. We all pulled off one new move (the sloppy but useful Gecko Loop), and got tons of instruction on many other freestyle moves. I'm on a hunt for a small fin to shave down, so I can start skipping into Vulcans and Flakas. I greatly enjoyed meeting and learning alongside such a cool and enthusiastic group.

I'm starting to upload pictures to Flickr: ABK freestyle clinic at Napeague - Sept 2007

On a side tangent, some fellow campers saw me trying out the orange waterproof Olympus 790SW. The camera is very sturdy and easy to use. Some of the pictures came out great (see the Flickr set), and some came out unfocused. But I was mostly disappointed with the video mode as it had terrible sound, and a 10-second limitation for the high quality mode (640x480 30fps). Read my more detailed rant if you are considering this camera.

Sebonac Bump-n-Jump Video (high quality)

Don't bother watching the Sebonac video on YouTube... it looks much better on the .Mac Web Gallery:

Sebonac Bump-n-Jump Windsurfing video

Sebonac Bump n Jump, Saturday, September 15th, 2007 (direct youtube link)

For some reason, the video stops playing 40 seconds before the end, right where the credits roll over some great still photos. You can joggle the slider a bit to see most of the end, but here are the credits. Apologies to those who I didn't list (need more names!):

Sebonac Bump n Jump - Winds NNW 15 to 30 mph, Sails: 4.7 - 5.2, Sailors: Scott, John "The Wolf" V, Jeff, Bruce, John H, Joe, John, Bill B, Jan, Video: Chiaying.

Windsurfing Labor Day 2007 (with video)

Red Cedar Point Flatwater - Labor Day '07 Session (direct youtube link)

Labor Day 2007 - SW wind in the upper teens at the Red Cedar Point sandbar on Peconic Bay. Jeff, Guillermo & Carlos work on jibes, planing jibes, duck jibes, and backwind jibes, while Flying Felipe gets mega air with his kite. The video stops 15 seconds before the end just as the credits come up (this seems to be a iMovie '08 / Youtube bug), but they simply list the Windsurfers & Kiter, and Videographer (Chiaying).
