Vanity

I keep saying that my only drive when I windsurf is to have fun.

But in this right moment I'm not windsurfing so I can indulge in a little vanity...
Bloody hell, a little?!?!!!! I would never post a sequence of six photos of such an average top turn if it was not me. Hey, at least I admit that!

There's something magic at watching photos of yourself windsurfing (or surfing, or doing anything you're passionate about, I guess). Why is that... I'm not sure. Maybe you guys can post a comment with your opinion about this.

Thanks to Andres for taking the photos and to Jazz for providing the camera.

Not really an average top turn in my opinion, nice stlye and lots of spray......and you look to be smiling as well.....or is that a grimace as you do a pee turn?

Andres Martinez said...

Lano,
wait until you see the other sequence... tomorrow's post.. ehehehe!

Andres, muchissimas gracias por las fotos.
You actually inspired me a lot to go for the aerials. It's amazing how much better you can still get after 25 years of windsurfing. I'm happy to be such a kook (compared to the Hookipa sailors)) after so many years. It's like a gift, so I always will have a lot to learn.

Attitude is everything.

Sweden calling!

I can only agree. NOT average. BUT where is sequence nr 7 - "did you make it all the way" is the first question that pops up?
Big ups for a great blogg!

Best regards

Average +++ :-)

When you are stoked that's (only) a matter of Feelings, I think. We go surfing because of those great feelings you all know, we like to see photos of us because they turn on into our mind what we was feeling in that moment...
and that is GREAT!

Allright, when I say average, I mean Hookipa average. Trust me, that IS pretty average for Hookipa.
But, who cares... it's me and I'm stoked to be able to do that.

Hey Patrick, put more hot Swedish chicks on the blog.
Jazz was nice enough not to send me photo #7. Or Andres was nice enough not to take it.
I actually think I might have somehow made that landing, not sure... for sure I didn't make the landing of the next, coming up sequence...

the sequence is great-as far as vanity, is the second day in a row that you post yourself. Meditate, bello, meditate.
