Freestylin At The Canadian Hole

Avon Sailhouse doesnt just sell you the gear, they take the time to show you how to rig it. Olaf took an hour of his time to help me dial my new sails in.

Every now and then a strong puff came thru

Ego Beach was mast high on the outer bar, but no wind on the inside

Headin back home today. Its been an awesome stay and I learned so much about wavesailing, and also on where the best spots are to wave sail on Hatteras island. I've been coming here for 20 years, and ocean venues have always been Ego Beach or the Lighthouse. Pretty amazing to find out I had only scratched the surface. In some ways, Hatteras Island is BTM (Better than Maui). Because of the unique boomerang shape of the island, you can almost always find clean side off conditions. But true side off conditions in Maui only happen a few times a year when the Kona's blow.
