Have you ever windsurfed in Bonaire? It is one of the best windsurfing spots in the world. If you've been there, chances are that you have seen Caesar Finies working his light wind freestyle magic right in front of the beach:
We just had tons of fun at the East Coast Windsurfing Festival in Long Island, and started to plan for the ECWF Cape Cod that will take place at Kalmus Beach on September 13 and 14, 2014. One of the great things at windsurfing festivals is to see great freestylers in action. So naturally, we started dreaming - "How great would it be if we could get Caesar to come to the ECWF Cape Cod?".
So we asked Caesar if he would come if we can pay for his airline ticket - and he agreed right away! So we started a fund raising campaign on indiegogo.com. We are trying to raise $1200, enough to pay for Caesar's ticket and his board bag. We are up to $300 in donations after just one day, so we are hopeful! Caesar will be staying with at our house while he is on Cape Cod, probably for about 7-10 days around the event. He will be showing his unique "Flowstyle" at the ECWF event if we have lighter winds - if we have a nice strong southwesterly, he'll show PWA-level high wind tricks that are rarely seen on Cape Cod! We are really looking forward to see a few of his trademark "Hail Mary" moves, where Caesar throws the rig up 20 feet in the air, and then catches it again after a few flips when the wind carries it back to him.
So we are asking all enthusiastic windsurfers to help us to bring Caesar to Cape Cod. We have set up a few perks as a "Thank you" for all contributors, including pictures with Caesar at the ECWF, "I Sponsored Caesar" T-shirts, and more. Check it out at http://igg.me/at/ecwf!
