Last week I traveled to Connecticut for work. They had snow and freezing rain while I was there. It definitely didn’t feel like Spring. I’m obsessed with taking pics from the plane.
Looks like ALL of them!
The crew down in Avon has been on the water literally every day since May 1! Surf, wind, sun, its all been down there south of Oregon Inlet bridge! For those down there either locally or visiting, its been a major score over the past 15 days. Great to see all the photos and its been a great late Spring offering during the welcomed warming period across the islands!

Riders include Mike W, SeaSquatch (Ken A), and the “Old Man!”
Addison lost her first tooth yesterday! It was quite the eventful day.
The first windsurfing day for the AWT Hatteras Wave Jam began Wed, Sept 17. Incoming swell from Hurricane Edouard arrived mid day and provided a fun set swell wave for the southern facing beaches. Winds were light/moderate, and though conditions were not consistent enough to run heats for the event, a successful morning Expression Session occurred during a short burst of 4.7m wind filled at Izzy’s. The Expression Session lasted about 40 minutes and all who where there enjoyed a fun time of wave rides and ramps. Kevin Pritchard scored the session trophy (champaign) sticking his signature one footed back loop.
Following the Expression Session, winds died off at Izzy’s and the swell remained marginal. Pro heats were on standby and Amateur heats were called off for the day. Many of the crew headed to Rmp 49 where the orientation of the island groomed the surf via side off wind conditions and the bars were nicely set for outside long line crumblers and inside fast barrels! Wind was marginal, but it was enough to get out between the sets and puffs of strong wind had many on full plane throughout the afternoon.
All in all, a really fun session at Rmp 49 and great practice for the upcoming Amateur heats later this week (likely Friday?!).
Here is a shot of Keith McCulloch on a nice outside wave at Rmp 49 yesterday!
The first NE blow came early this year as we are now in Day 2 of a three day run of wind and surf! Yesterday, as is typical for the first day, Old Lighthouse Beach was the call. I made it down to join the action riding a 4.6m MS Mutant and the trusty 92 Quatro Twin, Fun Time!
An assortment of wave kiters and windsurfers, even a lone surfer, were on the water ripping in solid chest+ conditions. Classic Lighthouse setup!
Keith snapped a few shots from yesterday.
