An epic sailing adventure of surfing, skateboarding, kiteboarding, and exploration aboard the “Natural Mystic” header image 2

slideshow and video

January 19th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Here’s a slideshow of images taken in Newport and Hampton. I’ll include this video BUT only with a disclaimer:

This footage is from the first kite session of this trip. The riding is sub-par, the video is handheld, and the lighting is overhead. I can assure you that what you’re viewing here will end up on the editing room floor. So consider this the deleted scenes from the special features of a unreleased DVD.

    Dear Vacationers Well that is it for me, I’m giving notice next week, quiting my job, throwing away my coat, all routine responbililities and becoming a sailor with toys, in a warm environment. Your pictures and words are working me bad. Just so you know, the viewer experience was very different when you guys were stuck in New England and repair work dominated the agenda. Now that the wind and camera are working, some jealousy is beginning to creep in. So torture me some more with photos and words because all we have here is zero wind and washboard surf. ENJOY!! Charles

    enjoying a bit of paradise. Keep the updates and pictures coming and we will live virtual until we get there. Have a good one. Lars

    Sweet dudes, we can’t wait to hang out and have some fun times together. I’m sure we will be able to think of a couple of things to bring down, hope all is good back home and it will be great to see my friends again.

    …its all rain here this week in SB…windsurfed in rain and southeast wind…cold..with a 5m wetsuit and silver bullet head gear. My feet froze! Still, its always worth getting in the water! Have fun and find the killer white sand beach with a reef breaking on the outside! Stay safe! JD
