Hatteras Wave Fest 2008 - Wave Challenge?!
Hatteras Wave Fest 2008 has wrapped for September with an assortment of successful FreeForm Sessions: (Sept 18, Sept 19, Sept 20, Sept 21, Sept 22, Sept 23), Wave Clinic, and Awards Party. However, the event is not over yet! We had awesome wind for the majority of the festival and an exciting forecast leading into the Wave Challenge contest weekend, but...the storm which brought huge surf and crazy wind mid-week, killed our promising conditions as it passed. We were left with great surf, but no wind to drive our wave rigs! The rest of the weekend has been all but windless with spotty mid to upper teens, amounting to a "no go" for the contest weekend. Though, we are heading into October and must keep the Hatteras Wave Fest fire alive!
Therefore, The Wave Challenge has been rescheduled, and is currently planned for the October 11 - 13, Columbus Day weekend. If wind is forecast, we will have a contest! If you will be here, be sure to register to participate in the upcoming event.
UPDATE: Avon Sail House is planning a killer party during the event weekend on Saturday night, 7:00pm, October 11 the celebrate the Fall Hatteras windsurfing season! Be there!
