What I Missed!!
Following the strong low pressure which passed the OBX on Monday; Tuesday, the east facing OBX was pounded with huge surf, whitewater, and strong NNE winds. Perfect setup for the south facing side of the islands where clean side to offshore wind provided a true wavesailing experience! Izzy's Inlet and Ocracoke were the spots to be had, and most of the crew reported awesome wavesailing sessions at those locales. I chalked it up as a "Missed It!" in my calendar, and from the photos, it looks like a major missed it!
The images speak for themselves!

wow -- great snaps!
Yea, that shot of Keith at the foot of that mast high wave is quite impressive!
I believe that is the shot of the year so far, in my opinion!
All of those pictures remind me of the April fools photo that I manipulated to make the waves look ginourmous... But these pictures are real... That was a hell of a few days!
Great photos...looks like a fantastic day.
