SUP days on Hatteras Island

Wednesday and Thursday were our stand up paddle surfing days of the week here on Hatteras Island. Both days Rob, Mark, Ralph, and I paddled and surfed for hours and caught tons of waves. Its been beautiful blue sky sunny 70s days with knee to waist high waves at The Old Lighthouse Beach. The water was crystal clear. We saw several bluefish schools feeding on baitfish, dolphin jumping around, and a ray that was as wide as my paddle is long. Here is a quick 20 sec GoPro clip of me on one of the waves in front of the lighthouse....

Rob has some great photos here and video here.

...and George just posted some great pics from Day 2 of the Hatteras Island Wave Jam here that really depict the fun day we had.

Looks like back to windsurfing this afternoon....

Sweet long ride! Good discipline in holding the paddle cam steady on the wave!
