X/Alphabe-Thursday

 Wind surfing - Xhilarating!

X is for exhilarating  Xilerating 

Well, I have never tried this sport but this guy was having tons of fun!

 Another wind surfer

Although the day was dreary, cold and windy, this guy seemed to be thrilled to be out sailing on the water too.

Looks like an OOPS! moment

Actually, the windsurfer was coming in for a break to adjust something on his sail.

Brief stopover

His friend came in for a few minutes too.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

I've always wanted to try this but never worked up the courage!

Andy said...

Excellent shot on the first photo! Well done Camera Girl!

Revrunner said...

Judging from the wet suits they're wearing, I'm guessing the water was rather cold.

They are fun to watch, I am too chicken to try it though.. Great action photos.

Although I'm not a sports type, I wish I could enjoy sea even if just swimming. (because of my broken ear drum, I can't since child, haha) Just surprising that they don't care the cold sea :-)
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Terri said...

Looks like fun, but I would like to learn to paddle board first..then maybe..maybe...I might try windsurfing. NOT! LOL!

William Kendall said...

Great action shots! The water looks choppy, and cold!

Jeanne said...

i admire their athleticism and upper-body strength!

Lowell said...

Terrific action shots, esp. the first one. I've not done this, either...I think it became popular after I had grown up and realized I could hurt myself doing something dangerous! :)

RedPat said...

I think you have to be very strong to do that sport!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

That is quite the sport. Many of us with back issues can shudder at the thought!!!!

Halcyon said...

Great choice for X - that's a toughie!

Sylvia K said...

They do seem to be having fun regardless of the temperature!! I love it!! Fun captures for the day, EG, as always!! Hope your week is going well!!

Ginny said...

This is really exciting to see, and great pictures even with all the action! I have never seen a windsurfer for real!

Linda W. said...

Looks cold to be windsurfing. But I know they do it in any type of weather. I live near Hood River, Oregon which is a huge windsurfing mecca.

Bob Bushell said...

Windsurfing is a sport, and it looks like he is having fun.

cieldequimper said...

Sorry but I can't help looking past them to enjoy the colours of the trees!

Jim said...

Nice pictures, Ms. E.G.T. Guide. That looks like fun, "xhilarating" to say the least. They all picked pretty places to surf too.

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous scenery. This is something I would not try. But admire those that do.

Randy said...

Beautiful trees.

Kathy said...

I think you just became a sports photographer!

Jack said...

Personally, I like your position better. Behind the lens.

DeniseinVA said...

Great action photography EG. It does look like fun. Alas I was and always will be too timid to try it but I do love to observe the brave hearted :)

Eden House News and views said...

By the loks of the lovely trees I would assume the water was cold .Fab pictures

Mascha said...

Great series! I've never heard this word (and except x-mas and Xerox did nothing come into my head - )

storybeader said...

looks like loads of fun - two things that I love: water and wind! And they look like they can stand the cold in their wet suits. Wouldn't catch me in a skin-tight outfit, even if I could windsurf. {:-D

Lmkazmierczak said...

Cool shots...Fun and full of action♪

Gattina said...

It's hard to find an X word, lol but you made it ! Nice pictures !

Jeevan said...

Amazing surfers! Surfing has just began to become popular here in India esp. in the state where i belong.

Betty said...

I was distracted by the beautiful fall foliage in the background. Great pictures!

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

there is a school 5 mins from my house, I son went once, and he didn't go again. I suspect he didn't like falling.

Judie said...

Your photos are GREAT!!! Love the fall foliage, too.

Pat Tillett said...
