Windsurfing in the Sweet Spot

big windsurfing crowd, kiting crowd in the background

I sailed for 4 hours straight without being overpowered or underpowered once! Did I dream it or did it really happen? I'm not sure.

I was in the zone, only took one 5 minute break to drink some juice pouches that I had stashed in my harness. I didn't stop until the wind got sleepy, just before sunset.

W Dennis Notes- In S wind you can really cruise the coast so I went all over searching for the best chop hopping- upwind and downwind of the rock island, towards Kalmus as far as the breakwater by Lewis Pond, South Village and the point beyond, in front of the Lighthouse Inn. The waves weren't really happening so I took what I could find for ramps. I was very tempted to just keep sailing towards the horizon, either to Kalmus or Chatham but I didn't have a ride back lined up and, luckily, reason prevailed.

West Dennis, Windsurfed, S, SSW, 18-23, Low Tide, 5.7/ Acid94, with Gary, Sam (kite), Andre(kite), others.

Summer days like that are the stuff of winter dreams. I love a perfect summer windsurfing day in the sweet spot!

Yeah, the only thing missing was good ramps. It gets harder to find bumps in the Summer around here. We aren't as lucky in waves as you southerners.
