color of the year

by Graham

The eagerly awaited announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year!


Pantone, the world’s leading expert on color, finally released the color of the year for 2012, Tangerine Tango: “Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.” I know most of you were eagerly awaiting the announcement from Pantone, which occurred some time past, and therefore will find my news unforgivably outdated. And to you, I ask not to forgive but rather to forget my tardy mention of Tangerine Tango.

Given the lack of windsurfing over the last days, here is a photo from a few weeks back of my father doing a cutback on a smaller Hookipa wave. I like the arc in the carving track.

A cutback from David earlier in the year.


Hopefully the windsurfing conditions come back by the end of the week. Wouldn’t that be fun? The forecast does look windy (see below). Till then I’m working on plans for next year.


Wind and waves! Ireland conditions come to Hookipa.
