Its Memorial Day Weekend

a perfect Hatteras sunsetIts that first weekend of summer when the grilles fire up and folks enjoy some outdoor activity. The long weekend provides an extra day for most to enjoy time off work and/or school. Its a time for driving to weekend getaways, and of course a time to think and pay tribute to our fallen soldiers present and past.

This weekend on the OBX, friends are in town and we decided to fire up the grille. After a day of kiteboarding and warm beach weather, the posse headed to our place for burgers, dogs, steaks, brews, and cake. It was a fun evening of hanging out and reminiscing about the past few days of kiteboarding, as well as what is upcoming. The forecast looks promising for SW every day though Monday; therefore, anyone here on the OBX for kiteboarding should be in for a fun time! From the windsurfing front, we may tap some sailable winds during the early evening hours, but I have my kite gear loaded in the truck this weekend.

Its a learning day, and where better to learn kiteboarding then the OBX

Memorial day week both prior and post holiday was fantastic for wind. A little on the lite side for windsurfing but fantastic for kiteing. Let's keep up the good relations with one another when on the water...kiters, watch your lines and the distance the kite may be from other people windsurfing. We are all on the water having fun regardless of what we are riding that is capturing the wind! Both sports can compliment each other; when the wind is lighter learn to kite and have fun and then get on the short board when it picks up! - Gary
