OBX report



I'll post more after I get back home, but here's a couple of pics. I didn't realize until now that I didn't have any good still pics of windsurfing from this week, only video (which I'll put together later and post, includes new helmetcam footage with my improved modified helmetcam). Had great wind on Wed & Thurs and it was blowing even harder earlier in the week. Sailed 4.6 on Wed and 5.4/6.5 on Thurs. Went stand up paddle surfing in the ocean today since there was no wind....more on that later too....it was great fun yet humbling. Here with Rob, Mark, Todd, Donald, Tommy & Eliza....good times. Always a beautiful sunset here.

4.6 on Wednesday? I was on a 3.4 most of the day (an hour or two of 4.5 in the morning.) Where were you staying?

Frisco...about 2 miles north of Windfest. I was a little overpowered but I don't have a smaller sail. It was the perfect sail close to sunset as the wind dropped just a little. One of our housemates, Donald, was on a 3.7 earlier that day.

I was glad you made it down to say "hello" at windfest. Awesome that you caught good wind... there was none left for the rest of us.

I'll be down there on May 2nd - May 10th so I should get some action with any luck...
