Check out this awesome BFS video I ran across over at CA (posted by flyingdutchman):



It's howling and the kid is as cool as ice...or cheese. Either way - this is what BFS is all about.

No doubt. I remember when I posted the still photo of this a while back, no one (not even the salts) could believe that the boat was being sailed at that angle. They thought for sure that it was being pulled over from the mast top - or was some kind of trick photography.

Guess those guys can sail.
