Hey, i have posted on other forums but thought it might be fun to share here as well.

I have been lucky enough to help build surf racks for this plane and join the pilot on flights. we just started flying around with windsurfing kit looking for new spots up here in iceland. Very fun :)

Great idea, can you load enough fuel to make it to Aus?

So you can get planing in light winds?

Aerial photos of the flat water spots you found would be very interesting. Even better some action shots.

Do you find any (geothermal) warm water to sail on?

I?ll post some pics soon :) About sailing geothermal water.. Well there is a spot about 20 min from my house which has geothermal hot water that mixes with cold water. Not to keen on sailing there, temps go from 2c to 80c from one meter to the next...

Until then there are some pics of the plane and landscape on the pilots instagram www.instagram.com/p/BnDxra7gS5S/?taken-by=stol_iceland

Does your harness hook get caught in the control yoke?
Wish I had your day job!

Elevated photographs of the level water spots you found would be exceptionally intriguing. Shockingly better some activity shots

Who was it that was asking for windsurf vehicle recommendations recently? Sure, the pilot's licence and the purchase price might be a sticking point, but I think we have a winner.
