The New Taste of Windsurfing

Post by wind.s » Tue, 03 Apr 2007 15:01:46


After 15 years of heading up the Taste of Windsurfing Tour, Roger
Jackson is calling it quits. "I've had about all the light wind
planing ***and inquisitive students one man can stand," Jackson
stated as he launched his shiny new jetski at Waves. "150 HP, baby,
I'll show those windsnobs some Serenity."

Meanwhile, Bruce Peterson and Starboard turned over the "Taste" tour
to none other than Surfingsports' WARDOG and with windsurfing being
cancelled last year, the tour will now be called Taste of SUP.

The east coast leg will feature gear tuning classes by cosmiccharlie.

Sure glad this is an April Fools Day Joke Post.
Otherwise I'd be more than a little upset.
I'm just getting into some new aspects and issues involved in
light wind planing, so that's definitely not over.
As long as the majority (probably 90%) of the first time
sailors we get in the "A Taste of Windsurfing" program continue
to amaze us with their ability to learn most of the windsurfing basics
in < 30 minutes, we'll continue to teach them.
Thanks again to Sailworks, Trident Sports/Starboard, HPL/Powerex,
Streamlined, GSports Fins, True Ames Fins, Tangent Dynamics Fins,
Lessacher Design Fins, Epic Gear, and DaKine for their support
over the last 8 great years!
As you may have heard us say.... what we do is a passion.
No one could pay us to do what we do!

But of course that is exactly what it is. At no point in the post
could anyone who knows squat about Taste or you or windsurfing or this
group take that seriously, right?

Prolly not, but then again we have "the Cosmic One".
Fortunately we've "lost" a few others who had the
"wonderful" (yeah, right!) ability to take nothing
  and make something of it, or vice versa.
rec.ws is a fairly nice and somewhat informative group
at the moment.:-)

For a nanosecond, you had me going there. It was the jetski thing that
tipped me off. I was wondering what to fill my calendar with, now that
I was going to have all this spare time. Whew.
  and now back to my taxes,

Forgot to add: Since the tour is now a SUP event requiring less
instruction, Ellen Faller joins Mo Gunn as Cosmic Charlie's Angels. :)

Now *that* could be an immensely entertaining movie, but careful of what you
suggest. ;)

well you got it long before I did.
My newsreader displays the date as 2nd april as I'm in Oz, plus I dunno any
of the people or the classes they refer to.
However tuning tips from cosmic$#khead made me realise straight away!!!!!
