The Great Outdoors

August 1998. Wind 25kts (estimated). Windsurfing (unidentified sailor) on the Columbia River at Vantage, WA.

Just an hour earlier, I was stranded downstream on my longboard with a big 7.4 sail, when the winds picked up in the late afternoon. I kept being blown over by the overpowering wind.  Needless to say, I had to dismantle my rig and carry the parts one at a time back to my launch site.

This picture was captured from 8mm video using a Snappy (320x240, 256 colour mode), and then converted to GIF.
