Windsurf 2008

Ladies and Gentlemen, the year 2008 rapidly approaches. With it comes windsurfing season. Are you ready for a trip to Corpus Christi in March? If not, now is the time to start preparing.

Early indications suggest we might visit sometime during spring break (March 8-16). I hope to see you all then!

OK, this year, can the March windsurfing trip not happen during SXSW? Ridiculous music/art festivals are the reason to live in Austin, so let's try to dodge them this year. :) SXSW film festival is the weekend before spring break, and the music festival is the week of and weekend after spring break, so I cast my vote for either March 1/2 or March 22/23.

I think that some folks who wish to attend can only make it to Corpus during Spring Break. I'm not a South by Southwest hater, SXSW is a Spring Break hater.

I think Matt is out of town for the 22/23 weekend. I'll let you guys duke it out a bit.

I'll be back in time for the 22/23 weekend. Plus, I tend to think later is better when trying to catch the first spring surf.

As an aside, there is going to be a Cirque du Soleil show in Corpus on the 22nd that Karen and I were thinking of seeing...

i'd definitely like to make a few trips down there with you guys this year, but if sxsw weekend is chosen i am most definitely out :-(

Sounds like there's not much duking... warmer water, less crowd, Cirque du Soleil... 22/23 weekend for the win!

I vote for sometime between march 8-16th, since that's the only break I have from UF... then I can combine SXSW with a windsurfing trip to make a great spring break

Sounds like there might have to be two trips made during March...

Due to popular demand it looks like we will have two trips. See how much I love you all? :)

James and Jolyon want to learn to windsurf March 14th and 15th (a one-night stay in Corpus). If anyone else wants to tag along for that trip, they're more than welcome. Spring Break in Corpus is fun.

The next weekend, March 21-23rd, we'll enjoy a traditional three-day stay. It sounds like this is when the veterans want to come out of the woodwork. It might be a big group -- this will be fun!

I look forward to hanging out with you all. But mostly, I look forward to lots of water time and lots of seafood! ;)

I'll put the details up as I get everything planned. Stay tuned.

Oh, and I'd love to hear suggestions for inexpensive SXSW-type activities while James and Jolyon are in Austin. Are Amy Glen & the Forgotten Heroes playing anywhere? Milhouse?
