About Us

Gary Stone - Owner - Isthmus Sailboards
Gary Stone - I've been windsurfing for 34 years. My favorite spots to sail are our home lake, Lake Mendota which is awesome when it gets big, Sheboygan, WI (Lake Michigan waves in NE wind) and San Carlos with Solo Sports. I love the sport because of the exhilaration of going fast, jumping high, the joy of the energy of bottom turning on a wave, of ripping a high speed jibe, of feeling the wind in my face... it brings a smile to my face just thinking about it!

Jon Massmann - Windsurfing Sales - Isthmus Sailboards
Jon Massmann - I've been windsurfing for 37 years. I continue to learn new skills, experience new locations, test new equipment and witness first hand how the sport continues to evolve and improve. Windsurfing is such an empowering sport where thrills, excitement, learning and the adrenaline rush continue to keep me stoked to get out and ride. This sport keeps you young at heart and meeting and riding with incredible like minded thrill seekers. My favorite windsurfing locations are Maui, West Coast, Caribbean and the Great Lakes region.

Pat Skemp - Customer Service - Isthmus Sailboards
Pat SkempHandling warranties, order processing, Int'l shipping, general invoice/sales record keeping duties and website maintenance Patrick is old enough to remember when you first had to tie your boom to the mast. He has been fortunate to sail in some beautiful places in the world like Margarita/Coche Island Venezuela, Los Barriles/La Ventana Baja, Cabarete, DR, Crissy Field San Francisco and of course the Gorge. When it is not windy you can find him on his road bicycle in the summer and nordic skiing in the winters.

Dirk Hooks - Warehouse and Inventory - Isthmus Sailboards
Dirk HooksDirk is the Isthmus Sailboards warehouse/inventory manager & has had the surf stoke since '83. A Sconnie local, he can be found carving a snowboard when the water's solid, and probably in his waders or a fishing boat when it's not windy. Lake Mendota & the Great Lakes are favorite playgrounds.
