Been a Long Time….!

Well, its been quite a long time since my last post. Family life has impacted my free windsurfing time considerably, and those “old” days of dropping all to make the run to Avon have been gone for a while. Fortunately though, with SeaLion Wings and a foil, I have been able to enjoy quite a few fun sessions in town (Nags Head) during the warm water days of summer when the ocean is flat. Of course, when there is surf, the Wings shines too with plenty of wave action in town!

I caught a fun Ego Beach sesh back in Feb where it was 3/2 fullsuit but no cap/booties (warm SW wind and surprisingly warm water)!  Recently, have been able to hit JRidge for a few 4.6m and down sessions this Spring!  Fun times to hop over for a quick sesh during the “extended” lunch break, or prior to the evening little league baseball practices/games.

Hopeful for some future runs to Avon or rather the ramps between Salvo and Avon for a few afternoon sessions.  Not sure what the breaks are like down there, but will try to make a recon run soon.

Also, if you have noted, I added a live YouTube video feed in the upper left of the blog.  This replaces the old Bambuser version, as Bambuser has retired from live video streaming.  The YouTube option works quite well though, just need to get out for some upcoming reports!

All in all, stay tuned!

Great to see all the sails out on the water and a level of participation unparalleled for some time here on the OBX!  Congrats to all the participants and organizers who put the race and event week together.  Awesome to see windsurfing very alive and strong with both the visiting and local stoke!
