I got my Windsurfing Canada sail number yesterday and I had this weird
thought.....

Flash back to 1979 and the Steve Martin movie "The Jerk"........

After a long wait Endo rushes to open his e-mail and see that he's
registered as CAN136.

"Whoo hoo!!", he shouts.

"After being beaten up on and abused for lack of experience, I'll
finally get the respect I deserve!! I'm a somebody!! I'm a somebody!!"

Meanwhile, little does he know, a crazy van driving ex-army militant
has gotten hold of the latest Canadian sail register and has decided
to assassinate a random victim.

His finger walks down the list and lands on sail CAN136.

Endo arrives in Haterras and gets planing early on his wide style
board. He gets dialed in and is about to attempt a carve jibe.

Just then, a series of small bullet holes start popping up in his
sail.

"Well isn't that strange? He guys come look at this, my crappy Chinese
made Neil Pryde sail is coming apart before my eyes!", he shouts.

As the bullet holes start hitting the sail, the rig becomes depowered
enabling Endo to pull off the most perfect carve jibe of his
life...which further infuriates the assassin.

The whole incident gets ignored by the local windsurfing mag writers
since they refuse to admit a newcomer could jibe in the first year
(and Endo's sail number is lower than there's....Nah Nah).

Should I move to Hollywood to become screenwriter?

Endo, Endo,

Have you been working with too much epoxy in a closed, non-ventilated area?
Please leave the writing to those of us that are professionals.  Perhaps you
would enjoy my book, "Visions -- a story of too many face-plants on a new
Carve 111,"  Broken Nose Press, 2001.

Keep 'em coming however, because I am a big Steve Martin fan.  All need is
this Formula board... and this sail, ... and I need this new boom,... and
this mast, ... and this chair -- Steve Martin, in the movie "The Jerk."

CI

For the first time, I agree with Endo.  Sweet, suite Marsha.

Someone should name a band after her.  Marsha Brady Overdrive.

Brian,

You've taken too many masts to the noggin'.  Did you see that Dukes reunion
about 3 years ago?  Daisy didn't age well.  Boss Hogg looked better in his worst
days.

Quite possibly, but if they did they would absolutely kick the ass of
the last generation of narrow boards.

Things may be cyclical, but each cycle's improvement is more than just
marketing.

Definitely potential here.  Try telecommunicatiing first.  Or maybe
submissions to the fanzines.   Good luck!!

You may be a righteous man, Tom, but there was definitely something wrong
about some of the criticism leveled at Endo recently.  It wasn't just
disagreement with his posts, whether he was being serious or inflammatory of
purpose.  Rather, there was an element of suppression due to the level of
his experience, the suggestion of a hierarchy of who may or may not qualify
to offer opinions/advice on this forum.

OK.. fine. You got me. I didn't see Daisy this year, but I did hear that she
looked like a career *** user. But were we really talking about then/now
looks? I was thinking of then looks. You can't tell me that Marsha would've
beat out Daisy then!

As for now.. maybe I'll go with Wonder Woman....   ummm.. gotta love her
magic downhaul... I mean lasso..
