A nice evening in Dunbar to take out my red air sup, the westerly wind died to a very light breeze, and we were blessed by a very interesting sky and some heavy showers, Gordon and laura where out with there new toy, so we had a little play around, the red air paddle board was not designed as a water ski but good fun all the same, gordons jet ski is capable of speeds up to 47 knots all great fun and a great way to spend a sunday evening, I'm glad i decided to take the tachyon camera with me as the light conditions where fantastic.

This guy makes some great little films with his go pro camera, this one is called a beautiful day off, the go pro cameras are probably the best cam around at the moment and although i own two HD cameras a tachyon HD and a bullet HD wide head cam the quality isn't anywhere near as good as the go pro, plus getting mounts for the tachyon is proving a little difficult, where as the the go pro has a lot of different mounts to chose from, so come pay day i may have a new camera to play with, we will just have to wait and see.
This is one of my favorite bands of the 90s, this song was the theme music for the movie american pie 2
a great time to be young, the band are still going strong with a new album due out shortly, and the new american pie film the reunion is out soon on DVD.

With the sea winds not showing any sign of letting up and my shoulders and back muscles aching from constant paddling i decided to head out on the pugsley for a ride along the coast and give the surfing a rest for a couple of days, i also decided to have a play with my tachyon micro hd camera, the weather was quite pleasant with the sun making the odd appearance through light broken cloud warming me nicely as i cycled along the beach, the light northeast wind was a little cool and kept the overall temp around 12 degrees just nice for a bike ride, i headed west towards the tyne and out towards the boundaries of john muir country park, i made a quick film of the ride along the beach and stopped for a quick paddle in the cold north sea, before heading home for a shower and a rinse down for the bike, a quick ride of about an 1hr 30 min.
