My winsurfing gear!

Check other photos of me windsurfing on the playa!

Sadly all my land sailing gear got stolen (yes, stolen!) last year at Burning Man 2007 (board, 2 sails, 2 carbon masts, 2 booms, streamers), more than $1500 worth of equipment.­ The equipment was stolen just before the dust storm on Friday afternoon, near 8:00 and Esplanade in front of the minigolf camp.­ I filed a police report.­ Any information about this equipment is welcome, e.­g.­ maybe you have seen your neighbors coming to their camp with all this gear?

I don't know if I'll have the heart to do that again.­.­.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
