    The forecast was calling for wind early so the first meeting at the beach was at 9:30am. We waited and waited as the wind gradually ramped up from nothing and finally became sailable at 4pm. By the end of the day, women, grand masters and youth heats had been completed (the final youth heat had to be canceled as the wind died just before sunset) and we had been treated to some masterful, graceful, and hard-hitting wavesailing. Even though the wind didn't hold up beyond the first day, this year's Santa Cruz Windsurfing Festival was a huge success: windsurfing fans from around the world and locally made up for the lack of a corporate sponsor by pitching in to the crowd funding effort and it was tons of fun to spend time with the windsurfing community at beautiful Waddell Beach. Thank you to Sam Bittner and the AWT crew for continuing to pour your hearts and souls into this fantastic tour.

      Day 2 of the Santa Cruz Windsurfing Festival brought no wind, but Sam Bittner, Cecilia Tolly, and pro windsurfers Morgan Noireaux and Camille Juban made the most of the scrappy waves at Waddell Beach, while osprey soared above the cliffs.

        • Ruben Lemmens reflects on the life of a windsurfer

          “Windsurfing has always been an integral part of my life, introducing me to my best friends and taking me to places I never thought I’d visit. As I improve it’s difficult to look back and watch how I sailed, however memories from these trips have lingered. To me this concept devalues the actual sailing but shifts the focus to how I was influenced by the situation as a person; a windsurfer. Although this is just a preview, and I’m not sure when the actual video will be finished, I hope to convey how profound the sport of windsurfing is and how wonderful the people are. A special thanks to Kevin Pritchard for the footage, and the motivation to start a video. Also thanks to Graham Ezzy for taking me to Madagascar and the Gaspard family for hosting us.” Ruben Lemmens

                Wavehog Films goes "behind the scenes" at the American Windsurfing Tour, 2014 Starboard Hatteras Wave Jam (Sept. 15-20, 2014). Filmed in picturesque Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, "Movie 14" traces the history of the Wave Jam from 1590 to the present. Based on actual events…but not entirely true. Thanks to everyone in the AWT family for participating, especially Sam, Cecilia and Sarah and to Kevin for help in post.

                  This was a really fun heat to watch, with some amazing sailing from legendary windsurfers, Josh Stone, Jason Polakow, Kevin Pritchard, and Antoine Martin. I left the recorded sound in -- you can hear a bit of the commentary on the PA system, the waves breaking, and that lovely crunch of wind noise blasting the camcorder's mic.

                    I had a great time sailing in the AWT in Maui last week. The waves had been over mast high the days before during the pro heats and I was relieved that they ran the amateurs in more easy-going conditions. The challenge was actually finding waves big enough to do more than one turn on. Thanks to Ally for filming.
