Windsurfing is Cheaper Than Therapy

Our good buddy Mark said that once. So true. Cheaper than drugs and mistresses too.

Light Wind Windsurfing from Mac Barnhardt on Vimeo

This was 2 Saturdays ago on the last warm day we had until this weekend. It was very light wind 8-12mph...picked up to 15mph at the very end of our session. Temps were high 50s and sunny. Rob and I took advantage with our big sails and wide-style boards. I mounted the Go Pro wide-angle camera on the front of the boom for this shot. Those dorky sunglasses are Sun Specs...those things work great when there is a ton of glare on the water...saves my eyes. I would always rather have 25 mph wind, but planing along in 10mph wind is better than not windsurfing at all....especially when you live inland 4 hours away from the closest beach.
