Gabrielle Headed Our Way, Day 1
Tropical Storm Gabrielle is on the march towards the OBX, and is forecast to run across the islands. Saturday, we experienced some of her swell at the Hatteras Turnout between Frisco and Hatteras Village. Conditions included chest to head high set waves; however, the wind was quite light and remained in the upper teens. The kiteboarders were loving it, and the Real crew were on the water ripping. Caleb and I were the only windsurfers there, and with marginal wind it was a weak slog out with some decent wave rides.
Today (Sunday), we are expecting strong SE winds and a rare Cove Sesh! The only drawback to the Cove is that we have heard that the bull sharks are mating there at this time...May have to sail a little conservative in the waves to avoid any long gear swims?! This should be interesting.
I have both the GoPro and regular camera batteries fully charged. Stay tuned!
