Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and Marine Science Center

Yesterday we spent the day with my parents being tourists.  We headed to Ponce Inlet for the day.  Our first stop was at the Marine Science Center which features a turtle hospital and bird rehabilitation.  Our next stop was to climb the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse which is the tallest lighthouse in Florida (175 feet tall – 203 steps to climb).  Afterwards we went to Inlet Harbor for dinner (the restaurant where Brian and I met).  They always have live music and by the end of dinner we were all out on the dance floor…kids included!   Make sure to check out the dancing videos below :)

NE Blast At False Point Near Hatteras Inlet

The Spring Hatteras Windsurfing is well underway and there have been many great sessions so far this year! However, with a busy work and family schedule this year, I have not been able to catch all the sessions as in the past. Still, I catch what I can get and today the gettin was good!

False Point down near Hatteras Inlet was the call which featured residual south well and a build wrap from the strong north swell locking in today. Surf ranged from waist to head high and sets were breaking nicely on the outside sandbars. We had a nice sized crew out and everyone caught some great waves! Check out the slide show! Looks like more to come tomorrow with bigger swell!

Yea, OBX-WIND is underway! We have a excellent group of celeb pros in town from Maui to participate/host the event, and share the Hatteras windsurfing stoke! Gonna be a great week for windsurfing!
