Hatteras Loop Fest LoopOff Trophies

The 2008 LoopOff Trophies!The 2008 Hatteras Loop Fest LoopOff trophies arrived today! We have five categories to award for the event which begins one week from today (June 20-22). The LoopOff will feature accomplished loopers competing for the various titles, along with exposure in video and photography. The action will be documented both on/in-the-water and beach side. It will be an aerial spinning windsurfing extravaganza! Forward, back, push, wave360, etc...if the rig and rider goes for a spin, its game for the LoopOff! Following the event, an awards celebration will be hosted by OceanAir.

If you can spin around in the air or on the wave, and have not registered yet, sign up today! Receive a FREE t-shirt too!

Eastern NC Wild Fires

source: Outer Banks Sentinel/NC Division of Air QualityAnyone who has been on the OBX this month has likely smelled or seen smoke in the air. Dependent upon wind direction, the smoke from wildfires in the eastern mainland area of NC has impacted the entire Outer Banks. Currently, the northern OBX is smoke free due to the past few days of onshore NE wind; however, the southern OBX has been impacted. Last week the northern OBX was blanketed in smoke, even ash, while the southern part of the islands was free due to the predominant SW onshore winds there. All in all, when the smoke is in the air, the impact is felt and gives us a small glimpse of what the western US must endure when wildfires ravage CA. For more local coverage on the fires see the Outer Banks Sentinel.
