They are a group of about eight friends who met on this beautiful Sunday morning, for a session of wind surfing.  The group meets at various locations where conditions might be ideal.  They told me that the winds were good for about one hour this morning, just enough time to form a line and catch the breezes as they surfed around in a big continuous circle, like sail boats do.   It is a strenuous sport, and you have to be in good condition; the surfers were a mix of men and women of varied ages.

I watched their session as the wind caught their colorful sales and propelled them at high speed through the calm surf. It wasn’t easy to stay afloat.

I got a chance to take some photos, then, as they reorganized on shore, we chatted for a while.  One of them, a professional piano tuner, gave me her card. I promised to send them some photos, which I did.

They all seemed to have a wonderful fun time. They were laughing and chatting away on the beach as they explained how good this sport made them feel. One of them said, “It’s a great workout.”
