Began the day surfing, then the wind filled in around 3pm and had a sweet 5.8 session at ego. Awesome to get out on the ocean down here. The water is so blue.
Hit some pretty sweet springy jumps off of ramps on the outside. No solid waves really, although I did make a few turns.
Then we carried our stuff back over the dunes to blast at the hole.
A lot of Hatteras locales showed up, and the skill level of the sailing was very high. No loop attempts from me today although there where plenty of flat water loops tossed by Bill Bell and Andy Mckinney. Stuart, thanks for getting most of these shots!
Andy Mckinney, i think doing a vulcan

Me gybing at the hole
We all unrigged as the sun was going down over the sound, then Andy and Anne, Bill, Stuart, Drew and I headed over to Mack Daddy's for some grinds and beer. I'm so stoked to have made new friends down here.
Shot lots of video today. Here is the first short video pulled from Ken's helmet cam.

So a great sunny and windy day on Hatteras, a special place for sure. Wind is cranking out there tonight and is should continue thru late AM. Looks like a dawn patrol at Izzies. I'm all over that.
