Martin - webmaster - formerly K-62, treasurer & ex Kommandant of the Bristol Nomads Windsurfing Club. Was a committee member from 1990-2002, and has been a member for more years than he cares to admit to.

He's recently managed to rationalise his boards down to Starboard Futura 121L and RRD 95L Freestyle Wave. His wife denies any part in this rationlisation.

In the past he has occasionally been known to jump on an overgrown skateboard with a rig attached and, thus equipped, zoom up & down the beach at Weston frightening the children. Sadly old age and a tad more common sense have prevailed, and the Speedsail has been donated to a better cause.

first ever time on a board cruising at Sotavento
In case you failed to notice, a couple of years separate these two photos. On the left, my very first attempt on a board near Grenoble, France, 1980 - I'm not convinced the boom was actually connected to the mast! On the right, looking marginally more at ease, if not somewhat bulkier, in Sotavento, Fuerteventura, 2003.
