I came back for more fromTaty Frans. This time I stayed up longer.
For the second year in a row, I gave hydrofoil windsurfing a try. This time I took a lesson from windsurfing star Taty Frans at The Frans Paradise. I got up in the air 3 times, and the third time I even managed to not crash.
I'm always thrilled when I make more than one planing jibe dry (w/o falling). Some day I hope to stop losing almost all my speed during the jibe.
Lac Bay can get a little hairy, with lots of speeding windsurfers. The guy coming from my left seemed not to have looked before starting his jibe. It was a closer call than this super-wide-angle video shows.
This is Bill vdB, sharing little vignettes of windsurfing on Sayers Lake, in Howard PA. and sometimes elsewhere.
