I grabbed a boat for a couple hours this afternoon to get a different perspective on the windsurfers at Crissy Field. Instead of shooting from shore as I do most often, I headed outside of the Golden Gate to get a view back toward Crissy Field and the City. It’s not often that all the factors line up – wind, swell, sun, boat, sailors. Today was one of those days.
While most of the sailors stayed farther downwind, there were a few brave sailors that were riding the waves at Fort Point or outside The Gate.
Here’s a shot of Wyatt Miller navigating the big swell and big traffic and one of him mid-trick. Click on the photos below or on this link to see all the windsurfing photos.
Back closer to the beach, there was still more traffic to contend with. Drifting through the buzz of windsurfers was a bit like standing in the middle of the freeway during rush hour, non-stop action.
