last photo was firiebob struggling to pass me with his heart monitor on his arm!


Happy I didn't flat line on the flat water

It was fun buzzing you and amazing to see how long you could sail facing backwards, it put some fun into the sandbank runs Your shots from the water look the ducks nuts, very good Mr Leader Was that BE GoPro with the remote and were you using the remote, the still images look much better than my original HD Pro.

Justin, again it seems like Windfest was a amazing event. A big credit to you, Kellie and Dylan. Sorry I missed it this year. Hopefully next for me.

thanks brendan, appreciate the kind words.
i would like to drag you up there for sure. there really is lots to do. even if there is no wind. sups races, fishing.......

also, the unofficial word is there is a push to include longboard racing at burrum in 2014. it would be held in the mornings at high tide before the afternoon low tide speed sailing. that way the speed sailing can continue uneffected as it has in previous years. it's not a definite yet but someone has put up their hand to set the courses so i'm going to really get behind the idea and try and make it work. would even like to enter a few races myself.

we've also slowly started to get social sailors coming along so i'm going to try and build those number as well.

viva la windfest!

hey graham, more great shots!! that camera of your's did an amazing job. you showed some steel standing waist deep in murky waters for hours while mad windsurfers buzzed past at 35+ knots within 2 feet of your head.

all of the different shots from everyone has become a lesson in how to photograph windsurfing.

you'd love it Jodi. Should definitely come up some time. I've started referring to it as the brown water classic. Fingers crossed we get the blue water back next year.

Justin, I have just got in from a early session on the speed bank with Ray great sail, the bank is the best it has been for 10 years now all the sand has come back and more the next two days look great with 25 to 30 knot winds, and the water is BLUE.
