First, I've been remiss in mentioning the upcoming Hatteras Wave Fest 2008 event that OBX Bill has organized. It will be held September 15 - 29, 2008 oceanside on Hatteras Island. The event will consist of three elements which include: Freeform wave sailing, Wave Clinic, and Wave Challenge competitive event. Click on the link above for more details. Thanks to Bill for organizing this and getting the competitive juices flowing again on the Outer Banks....it's been awhile.
Speaking of Bill, he put together a great video of the Loop Fest event he also organized. Check it out here along with some other videos from others. Oh yeah, and our very own Donald makes an appearance in Bill's video as well.
Second, I'm off to Punta San Carlos this weekend. I'm a beginner wavesailor, so this will be a great learning experience for me...and one heck of a trip. I hope to post some updates and pics as next week progresses, so check back. Charlie from Ride Hatteras put together this cool 1 minute video from his trip there last winter. If you can't open it from the link, copy and paste this link into your browser and the video should start automatically: http://www.ridehatteras.com/videos/sancarlos.mpg
