Yesterday, wind and surf aligned to provide some really FUN conditions in Nags Head town proper!
I was out at Conch Street across from Jockeys Ridge
and conditions were solid 17-20+ mph SSE wind and a nice SE swell providing chest + outside surf! I rode both kits including the 92 Twin as well as the Sealion Pro. Sail throughout the day was the 5.1m Maui Sails Mutant. On the Twin, the wind primarily was on the light side, but for about an hour I was well juiced even for a few rare Nags Head loops! Swell was perfect for easy pickup on the outside, and the energy always was enough to plane upswell and into the surf zone!
Late day as wind shifted true S and decreased, I switched to the Sealion and remained out there riding wave after wave. A full 6 hours of wavesailing and at the end, I did not want to stop, but was simply too spent with a tired body and sore hands. Given the rare Nags Head wave sesh (surprisingly with nice sized surf!), it was hard to give it up to end the day!
I was solo out there other than a few surfers who paddled out. Inside current was strong so many did not stay out long as they drifted north towards Nags Head Pier. On the windsurfing kit though, I was able to remain out most of the time. Did have to do a number of up wind walks but that was mainly due to the long DTL rides connecting 5+ turns!
All in all, an excellent session and I wish they were not so rare for Nags Head?!
No images, but if you happened to view the Nags Head Pier Cam
yesterday afternoon, you likely saw the sail in the zone when the cam pointed south!
