Met the 100+ Mark Today
The OBX 100 Rule: Water temp plus air temp (Fahrenheit) must be equal to or greater than 100. Again, SW winds ramped up during the afternoon hours in Hatteras and the 100 Rule was met...wavesailing time! I decided to take the afternoon off work, and make the trek south after completing a software release this morning. Conditions at Ego Beach included strong SW winds in the 25+ mph range, air temps in the 60s, waist to chest high surf, and cold ocean water hovering in the upper 40s. I rigged a 4.7m and had plenty of power! Caleb Jacobs, Jim Myers, and I enjoyed the afternoon session along with some crazy college spring breakers from New York who were boogie boarding in board trunks and bikinis. They were definitely from up north!
For the Hatteras Wave Crew, three south wind windsurfing days so far in early March!
Here are some more photos:
