Four of the Best Days of Sailing, EVER!!!!

I just wrapped up four of the best sailing days I've ever had. I've said it before, Hatteras is a special place; and I'll be back, very soon. We had a great time at the Hatteras Loop Fest. Thanks to everyone involved. It was just what the doctor ordered to reach the rotation I've been longing for. I've really taken my sailing to another level and I'm so stoked!

First thing this morning we checked out Old Lifeguard Beach. Great spot. Epic Epic sesh yesterday that won't be forgotten soon.

Then over to Ego to check out the conditions. It looked pretty sweeeeet!

I rigged my 5.8 with the 91 ltr. Ken and I hit some nice jumps. There wasn't much wind on the inside, but the outside was magical with a fun little peep from a seal, who poked his head up, only to see me bearing down on him. He took the deep dive, quick.

I must have had an hour and a half sesh without coming in once because I knew as soon as I hit the beach, this epic trip would end and we'd have to hit the road for our trek back to Delaware, so I wanted to savor a little solitude on the outside, and make it last as long as I could.

Ken is slammin' through the break and catchin' a little air.

I purposely sailed today with my back hand further back on the boom all day today. This will position a jump like this to rotate much easier. Jumps were floaty and nice on the outside.

It takes us about 6 hours to scoot up the eastern shore to our Delaware house. A couple cool shots along the way.

What's the forecast for next weekend?
