Another year - right on!

This coming year will mark 30 years of windsurfing for me (yep, I started when I was a pup). It's been a great ride, and over the decades (whoa, sounds odd to put it that way) the sport has given me so much to be grateful for. Lots of exciting experiences, lots of personal growth, lots of physical and mental challenge, and just tons of all-out fun. It's not one of those things that provide instant gratification - I assume every windsurfer would heartily agree with that (even those who live in places where warm waters and reliable winds prevail; not that I'm jealous or anything given the uncharacteristically cold and snowy December we had...).

May the New Year bring you lots of breeze, great sailing, and lots of opportunity to enjoy what to me, after all these years, is still the most amazing and thrilling sport I can imagine - Happy New Year, everyone!
