Windsurf

Windsurf Calm

Windsurfing on hot calm days

Standing as you gently glide

Easy across the rippling surface

Burbling wake, barbeque smells from shore

.

Windsurf Squall

Fast moving squall, white caps

Leaning far back in strong howling air

Planing over tops of waves

Ripping, shredding water

Spray off hull, snapping sail

Pure sustained acceleration

Sail driving lifting becomes a wing

Fighting to leave the surface, taking flight
