AWT 2015 Preview!

Wow, what a line up for the 2015 American Windsurfing Tour (AWT)!  This year adds Cabo Verde as the first stop on the Tour.  Cabo is one of the top world class wavesailing destinations located just of the coast of northwest Africa in the eastern Atlantic.  Our own, Andy McKinney (Wind-NC) will be there participating with many of the top wavesailors on the planet!  Good luck Andy, and major dibs for the opportunity to hit it there!

To spark up stoke for the coming 2015 AWT, see the new Promo video!

November Wave Action!

Yesterday, warm windy SSW blanketed the OBX providing fun sessions across the east facing beaches from Nags Head to Buxton.  I caught it at Conch St in Nags Head both on the Sealion and standard kit.  Fun waist+ conditions with some overhead peaks and gusty warm winds ranging 10 to 35 mph!  Water temps remained relatively mild at around 60 degrees with no booties or hood required.
I did have to swim the kit in as the wind completely dropped out in Nags Head following a squall burst of 30 mph wind... luckily, I was in the inside when all dropped out, so the swim was short.

Down south, the Avon wave crew caught it at Ramp 43.  From the pics Keith sent in, appears Rmp 43 was the prime spot to be for day!
   All in all, some FUN, warm OBX November wave sesh all around!

AWT Hatteras Wave Jam is a Wrap!

What an awesome ride again this year!  The American Windsurfing Tour Hatteras Wave Jam experienced some really FUN conditions last week.  From a contest perspective it was a tough year as the wind and surf in general was just below par; however, throughout each day of the contest window, pulses of wind/waves aligned allowing all heats across all classes to run and score.  Overall, it was a great success and special thanks to Sam Bittner, Chris Freeman, and Andy McKinney who led the Tour Stop and really made it happen!

Also of course, special thanks to Kevin Pritchard who put together this excellent experience video of the event!
