Windsurfed the Basin

We windsurfed the Basin tonight on my new 6.5 Ezzy. It worked like I had hoped. The low end matched the 12m kites. The Basin renovation looks complete now, including new parking signs that made ALL the parking spots for boat trailers only. The kitesurfers, windsurfers and kayakers got totally screwed. No parking for us and there are more of us than boat trailers. The Basin is a 3 foot deep mud hole. Hardly the popular boating place it was 20 years ago. There are just a few car parking spots down the road. Not where anyone with recreational gear, kayaks, windsurfers, or kites would want to haul piles of gear to and from the water. Lets hope the parking is policed with some common sense.

I discovered the basin last summer. It was a lot of fun on a couple good sw days. Did someone mention good slalom spot? Unless they have a full time wrecker truck out there I can't imagine how they'll enforce the boat/trailer rule. Unless the plan is to break it off in folks with parking tickets.
