While many Rocklanders were checking flashlight batteries and stocking up on water and food, one West Nyack man was getting his board and sail ready for Sandy.
Igor Manoylovich was wind surfing the Hudson River during the storm—and the day after, on Tuesday.
As Manoylovich stepped out of the water Tuesday near West Shore Towers in Nyack in a wetsuit, he carried his board, sail and mast back up to Gedney Street.
He noted he was not allowed to get into the river at Memorial Park.
"The water’s roughly 58 degrees," Manoylovich said. "I’ve been sailing since 1983. I sail during all the big storms, Hugo, Floyd, Irene, Igor, you name it."
Manoylovich did not seem worried about the potentially dangerous items in the water, and said he's sailedmuch worse storms in the past.
"The wind pushed everything to the shores, so there's not much debris out on the water," he added.
