Assateague Was Firing!

Photos by Kristin Markopoulos and Dave Hartman. Thanks for the great shots!

Today Niko and I scored some great wavesailing in Assateague. Powered 5.0 conditions with unsually little current. Surf was chest to head high, with a few bigger boys to play on! We had a blast! My daughter Kristin and here friend Porchsa where again along for the adventure. They loved driving out onto the beach!

Show time


Plenty of carnage today, mostly my own!

The amazing thing is that everywhere else, it was pouring rain, even lightening up in Milford. All of Maryland was socked in too. But Assateague stayed dry all day. The sun even came out.



There is an air show up in Dover tomorrow

The water was warm and the girls had fun, although they got a bit to comfortable in that shorebreak for my liking.














Crowded spot huh!


Fabulous conditions!






Niko was ripping


Formidable shore break today. Fortunately the current was not much of a factor











Niko making good work of it




I find the overhead carry method most effective in heavy shorebreak. Just walk your stuff out and toss it over the shorepound.
















I like this one


And this one isn't bad either!





I feel blessed!

Thanks for catching this moment Dave!




After the sailing, i took the girls exploring soundside




Great day of sailing the Delmarva. Assateague, my favorite wavesailing spot north of Hatteras.
