May Not April

The old Greensboro windsurfing crew reunited for a trip back to Hatteras Island recently.  Most windsurfers normally flock to Hatteras in April when springtime rolls around.  We chose to go in May, thinking it would be a bit more consistent warmer weather and water....but we got the up and down April weather instead.  Hence the title of the blog post and the video below.

As most of you know, the first rule of Hatteras Island is to bring everything.  We windsurfed in light to medium wind, SUP wavesailed in small waves, and SUP surfed in medium to fairly sizable waves, in cloudy and sunny conditions.  Still had to wear some rubber due to chillier temps but it was all good despite some rain too.

Hatteras Island will always be one of my favorite destinations.  Such a wild and beautiful place with world class windsurfing and surfing.  I have so many great memories of years past there dating back to the mid 90s to now.   Despite spending more time in Charleston and making mostly annual trips to Hood River these days, I look forward to making more memories there.
