Ladies and Gentlemen, it's here. The wind. The wind is here for real (the Tomales Bay buoy showed 28 mph at around 4:25 pm). Today I'm sitting in my home office working, and there is a contractor here cleaning lint from my dryer. I'm constantly checking facebook to see who is doing what today and where they are doing it. Some are doing a "Windy Wednesday" with the Barbary Ghost, some are on Tomales Bay, some are just surfing little bumps on the river. Me? Just working. A little sad that I'm missing out for sure but I know this is just the beginning. There are many "SUP Safari" adventures aboard the Ghost, the Davenport race, and Tomales Bay runs with my DownFrienders. My friend Matt Palmariello and I are even running a three day downwinder camp on Tomales Bay in about three weeks.
Let the downwind season begin! I can be patient. I know there are plenty of bumps for everyone. Surfing for miles at a time with no line-up, no waiting, and no problems. Not a care in the world.
