Fearless Friday

A couple weeks ago at work we had an afternoon of team building at a local park. We played frisbee gold then did some zip lining. Shockingly I wasn’t scared at all. The tightrope walk was the hardest of the entire course. I had so much fun doing the zip lining that I told Brian we need to go some weekend and do the advanced course. The next day when I came into work my co-workers were calling me the wooded warrior…lol!

What a week for the 2013 AWT Hatteras Wave Jam!  Two solid days of heats and perfect surf conditions for all brackets, a week long experience of sunshine, warmth in the air and water, solid long period surf, nightly parties at host windsurfing shops, and a community of participants/spectators enjoying the camaraderie of Hatteras ideal experience.

AWT Hatteras Wave Jam 2013 is in the books as one of the best, if not the best windsurfing event ever hosted on the OBX.   Rivaling the 2010 event, 2013 featured a caliber of competitive high action wavesailing though all classes from Amateurs though Pros.  The talent on the water was top notch and feature quite a show in conditions perfect for a wavesailing event.  Interestingly, all heats across all classes was completed in two days early in the event window and the follow-on days focused on perfect surf and extremely fun SUP sailing and SUP/surf under cloudless skies and trunks only weather.

For those who made the trip to participate or experience Hatteras Wave Jam 2013 week, as Mac B said to me while out in the lineup on Friday…. “Pinch Me, is this real!?!”

Brian and I had a date night this weekend.  Found a highly recommended Italian restaurant in the area.  It was a small restaurant with phenomenal service and food.  It was like a scene out of The Sopranos.
