Hey, don't judge. He may be rigging next to you the next time you are at Van Pugh. Say hi to your new neighbor.
It gives us great pleasure to inform you that your parking place is endangered. We are so happy that we could barely sleep last night thinking about it. We are excited. Estatic. Pumped. No, the Corps hasn't changed anything at Lake. We still have the same access - well, better since they've done some improvements to the walkway and grass at Van Pugh. The reason your parking place is endangered is that someone else will be using it. And, that someone else will be a new windsurfer.
Windsurfing is back upfront. It's always been cool but it has both slipped to the back of the public consciousness and become a bit esoteric (we call it the "Soccer Syndrome", to be addressed in a future article). Here are three reasons that is about to change:
It's Preppy (or, at least Vineyards Vinesy)
We mention this one with some trepidation. Due to the spending habits of of someone in our household (lookin' at you, Princess), we've found ourselves on the Vineyard Vines mailing list. If you aren't familiar with the brand, it's the current generation's answer to L.L. Bean. They carry the same theme of khaki, plaid and madras that's been found in fraternities and sororities since Delta house was banned from campus.
The owners of the firm are a clever bunch, setting photo shoots in really swell places while their friends back in New England suffer from frost bite. We don't know what possessed us to thumb through the latest issue shot in St. Barths but we found a very welcome surprises: windsurfers, windsurfing, people learning to windsurf.
