Thanks for the compliment... (never too many of those)

If you are ever in the Delta this Summer and want a photo session just send me a PM or e mail me @ rich.baum@sbcglobal.net or call 916-296-5778 and I will be happy to shoot you..
I will also cut you a killer "Bro" deal. If you get together with a couple of friends it comes really cheep (for what you get) and I can burn a CD right on the spot so you don't have to wait for the photos. I am camped right at "The Sign" all Summer (till Sept.) and can shoot you any weekend at any location on the Island (though I am partial to "The Sign")

it sounds like although it could hahve been the windiest day on record not that many actually "sailed" but 'held on for one or two runs" instead.

we all should join team pussy.

you could definitely sail if you had the right sized gear or were just fearless. i heard accounts of Whit Poor throwing huge port push loops on a 4.1 just 50 yards off the launch at 3rd that day. I just got my neighbor a 3.3 for the next nuker Laughing

it's awesome to those pics from the delta, and there were a few pics on facebook SFBA group page

now.... if it would only warm up a little bit... freakin' cold lately!

i know, i'm a whiny CA wimp.

I have to disagree with you, as Vince, Jason and Mike were not "holding on" but killing it in 50+ mph...

Some guys just have the talent and balls.

Nice shots Rich- great combo of action and scenary. One thing though did you photoshop the swell Laughing ? It felt much bigger than the pictures show (so did the jumps!).

Thanks for sharing!

Mike,

Face it, the swell was small and your jumps were wimpy... you couldn't be more than 12-15' in the air (if that).

You just need to learn to jump higher... try harder next time.

(PS, how many times have you checked out your photos? LOL)
