It Windy In Hatteras!

And its gonna contnue for the extended period! I've never seen anything like this forecast. Unreal....
Conditions today were pretty dreamy. We sailed The Point. First session on my 5.6, completely lit, then rigged down to 5.0 for the majority of the day. 5.0 Was perfect. The conditions today reminded me alot of Uppers in Maui



To get out to The Point, you need 4wd

The more the merrier




Wind was out of the northeast, and port is my strong side. I was hitting jumps like this all day! It was a port jumpers dream today!

Mostly backside rides today, but a few frontside smacks where had by the more experienced riders.
