Video of my ride on the Melges 32 “Star” the other day

House of Air

Had an awesome weekend opening up the new indoor trampoline park in the Presidio (House of Air). I was not going to bounce because I am coming off a badly sprained ankle but I could not resist. I bounced like a maniac. So much fun. Was sore in places I never knew. Been doing yoga nonstop ever since to get back in form. Here are pics of the place.

Took a ride on Jeff Ecklund’s Melges 32 (STAR) today while they prepare for Big boat series and World Championships. I was not the only Olympic medallist on board. Check out this crew I sailed with.

It was totally awesome. That boat rules. It was nuking by the afternoon so it was quite a ride. Enjoyed hanging in the back and shooting some pics and vid. I will attach some soon.
Thanks for the ride guys.
