Kyber’s Salon

February 29th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Yesterday I visited Kyber’s Salon on the transom of the Natural Mystic. Like a scene from “Edward Scissorhands”, tufts of hair were flying through the air giving local birds ample nesting material. You see, I haven’t had a real hair cut in about seven months so before Paul Mitchell-Kyber got a hold of the clippers, […]

Yesterday we saw Ty off to catch his plane to the great old USA via St. Thomas and the USVI. Since we can only get a 30 day visa here at a time and Ty took all his stuff with him, which amounted to 9 bags of surfboards, kites and crap we decided to take […]

While cruising to Anegada from the Bitter End, the Natural Mystic had her best sail since arriving in the BVI. With help from our new friends; the crew of the Chippewa, we were blasting along at 19 knots with more people and supplies then we’ve ever had aboard. Once we arrived, we loaded our gear […]

The whole Natty M crew was in the water for yesterday’s afternoon session. Lars rigged another sail up and rode it down to the beach on the Bitter End. After the whole troop launched from the small beach, it was rush hour in the water. Lars soon found himself on the radar of Kyber’s water […]

Broken Boards, M&M Strangler, Ripped Sails and Hooters

February 11th, 2008 · 5 Comments

After a good breakfast, we piled in the Red Rocket towards Eustacia beach. Lars had discovered the sail he rigged , flew and ripped in the morning was too much for the winds out by the reef, so he opted to spectate the carnage that would soon ensue. Ty was first to launch and was […]

Back to the Bitter End

Sandor and Lars are present and slowly sinking into the Caribbean ways of windy, wet days and evening Caribbean cocktails.  As usual Sandor showed up with a bad back from the Plane flight and right away it looked like we were on a Rainbow Charter as I being the good friend that I am and […]

Wind and more Wind

February 5th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The wind continues to blow here every day as it has before man ever walked on this part of the earth. Nonstop trades and fun people make the islands here a true water playground. More of the same today, the rash is a little better after sitting it out a day and hopefully with the […]

Waves and Wind

February 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Well, we made it out of the boat yard and Natural Mystic is better than new and working like a champion. With her help we were able to anchor right on the inside of the wave at Cane Garden Bay and score some super fun overhead surf for two days. With uncrowded conditions and a […]
