Its Been a Windless August

My posts have been a little slow this month, at least with tales of high winds, fun surf, and wild rides in the water. As compared to August 2005, 2006 has been quite a "let down." I do not have a single "W" (windsurfing) or "S" (surfing) on the calendar for the month! This year we did have a few fun beginner surf sessions, but I usually do not mark the calendar unless it is at least chest high. Last Sunday we had some decent SW winds (missed it), but other than that...nothing. During 2005, as you can see in the lower calendar, there were many "S" entries. We had awesome surf last year due to all the hurricane activity. By this time last year, were were already at "Katrina" as compared to "Ernesto" this year.

September is just around the corner so hopefully the wind/waves will kick into gear. I need some sessions here on the OBX because I do not want to be too green when we leave for Maui at the end of September.

Here are a few "reminiscent" shots from August 2005:
