Hatteras Loopfest 2014?!

For those who have been following this blog for a while, waaaay back in 2008 we started a rebirth of Hatteras windsurfing events with the inaugural Hatteras LoopFest 2008. The event was a huge success with local and industry sponsorship support along with participating windsurfers from Florida to New England. George Markopoulos took home the grand prize with a successful loop commit captured on GoPro video; while Keith McCulloch was crowned “Loop King” winning the LoopFest Loop-Off held at Ego Beach. 2008 was a long time ago and now/upcoming in 2014 (late Spring/Early Summer) is it time for LoopFest again!

Who is Ready to Rotate!?!

Friday Happenings


Friday started out rough as Enzo woke up in the middle of the night with a fever.  Both of my parents had appointments yesterday morning as Mom prepares for her upcoming surgery so I stayed home with Enzo and took him to the Doctor.  Poor guy kept saying Ouch Ouch Ouch.  He has strep but glad we caught it right away.  I keep thinking to myself…at what age do they outgrow getting sick every few months?  I’m sure it’s because they are both in school/daycare but I always feel awful when they are sick.
The day ended on a good note as Addison enjoyed her first gymnastics class.  She was so focused and did very well.  Two of her good friends from school were there as well so they had a blast.  Watching her brought back so many memories of when I was in gymnastics as a child…hard to believe I’m now watching my own daughter…bittersweet!!
