I often find myself singing while cruising along. Some songs I like to sing while blasting along include, "Great balls of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis & "Im sexy and I know it" by LMFAO.

what do you sing?

Ok ,I'm biased, To me this is the best windsurf song.

He sounds quite different now,I wonder if he would re=record it

I don't really sing while sailing, but I do run music thru my head, this last season this was going thru my head quite often.

I had this one playing in my had a few times.. obviously because of Paul Van Bellen's beautiful YouTube clip. Pity the audio is removed from it due to copyrights.



Actually you can play them together to enjoy Paul's clip with the soundtrack again.

When the wind suddenly picks up and I think about changing to a smaller sail then the song "won't let you trick me twice" by Kelis comes to mind.

For all these years I thought I was the only one that sang something every now and then when sailing. Glad to know I am at least marginally normal. Don't mind a bit of Tool, Ticks and Leeches, ... hope this is what you wanted coz this is what you're getting . :)

"Skipping over the ocean, like a stone"

The line is from "Everybody's Talking", by Harry Nilsson. Whenever I get planing after a while off windsurfing, that line just blasts out, possibly through my mouth

A few years ago someone grabbed the riff, and made a modern version of it, and about that time I made the pilgrimmage to Gnaraloo. When I got home I just had to:
1) Mix the two tunes together
2) Edit the footage from my trip to exactly match the mix
3) Post it to youtube.

Here it is:

Can still picture every move to go with the tune in Robby Naish's RIP vid.
