Summer Windsurfing - again

Had two days in a row of  Westerly winds blowing giving us a couple of good sessions windsurfing in Ghallis. I have said it so many times before but will say it again - nothing like windsurfing in the summer - no wetsuit, warm sea, warm air and just a very special feeling in general whilst on the water. Have windsurfed 4 times in the past 2 weeks - really good going for our windless summer days. Just hoping we will have more wind this summer but if so not for a while as forecast is a week of very high temperatures with variable wind.

July Wind

We had a good day of WNW'ly wind end of last week. Always very special sessions windsurfing in winter wetsuits, warm sea and general terrific feeling.
Had a great time on the water and also found time for a bit of photography too. I used my new SIGMA 120-400mm zoom lens and very happy with the results.

Full Moon on the way = Wind on the Way

It is quite amazing how every time there is a full moon in July (and most other months) the wind arrives. Hoping the wind will manage to squeeze two good days in - Friday and Saturday. We get very little wind here in Malta during the summer months so we have to make the most of these rare days.

Liam Dunkerbeck - a Future Star?

Above is Liam Dunkerbeck, Bjorn Dunkerbeck's son surfing at the Siam Park in Tenerife.
Photo was taken off Bjorn's Facebook page. Liam is already an all out ''Water Boy'' practicing various boarding disciplines. No doubt someone to watch ........I would say in the near future.

I love the contrast of the limestone against the brilliant azure sky.......and the cloud formation
