tandem sailing

With a month delay, a video that I absolutely love!



To thank Francky for the blast, here are some photos of him that I took that same day that show how good of a sailor he is.
Let's start with a chop backloop!


Shove it.


Chop forward.


By the way, on the tandem he's on a 4.7 and I am on a 4.2 and the board is an SOS custom SUP board that he converted in a tandem board. He's looking for a partner to ride outer reef mast high waves this winter...

absolutely great! I am just looking at your smiling faces... are you just having fun or are you watching a beautiful naked woman down there? :o)

This is a classic...I’m sure there’s a long list of pleasures that make Francky squeal like a girl and it’s a joy to hear! 100% exuberance, good job gentlemen.

Great photos and movie GP>
I am going o take a sabbatical year from work and figure out what my life it's going to be.
You are inspiring.

Great vid GP, Francky sounds like he is a hoot! Tandem sailing looks like heaps of fun, did you find it weird on the front of the board? When I have seen tandoms in the past, the rider on the front has always been in the air, weird sensation I could imagine.

Great fun. I did it with the frenchman and ulli - though not at the same time! We had a blast! The foot straps are massive, so your feet leave the board and get 5 inches of air in the foot strap on every bit of chop. Just adds to the excitement. Nice guys

Checco,
clearly both...
Hang on that 6.3 at the lake!!!

Sharon,
if YOU go on a tandem ride with Francky, I'm sure he'll squeal even more...

Luca,
that's what this blog is all about!
When I decided to take a sabbatical year, I had other people insipring me (thru books, songs, movies...). Now I'm just giving back.
Way to go, brah!

Lano,
it was quite a weird feeling indeed. Yes, you hit the chop and you don't feel the landing back on the water... I don't know how that board is still one piece. It was pretty windy...
By the way, if by "hoot", you mean definition #4 of
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=hoot
yes, that's what Francky is...
Not sure about the other definitions though...

Shoots Meesh, I missed your comment.
Did you get any jibe?
We were incredibly lucky on the first one and then we failed all the other ones...
But it felt like with a little practice it shouldn't be that difficult.

Hey, you would be the perfect partner for Francky's outer reef wavesailing project!
Just make sure that Ulli is there with a ambulance jet ski...
