Small Yet Fun at Cape Point!
Small but fun session with lots of little white water peaks on the sand bar at Cape Point Friday, April 16. Juiced 5.3m warm SW wind, and plenty of inside power while riding the Tempo92. Great setup for goiters, and lots of loops on the trip out over the bar. I was solo since the surf was small, and some of the key wave crew were out of town, plus 4WD is required for access to the spot. There were plenty of fisherman out on the Point, though none were near where I was sailing.
Great warm weather and water, now all we need is some Spring-time Hatteras surf?!
Unfortunately for Hatteras wave sailing, popular and convenient spots such as Ego Beach, across from Canadian Hole have no working sand bars this year. Therefore, the Hatteras wavesailing scene is fairly scattered. If you are visiting and interested in hitting the Atlantic, definitely check in with Andy at Wind-NC, Olaf at Avon Sailhouse, Stu at OceanAir or Charlie at RideHatteras for the latest on where the crew is at. Also, if you have a wireless device, be sure to bookmark the OBX Beach Life Forum, as we update near real-time with wave session reports and locales on the site!
Simply hiking across the dune line at Canadian Hole will not find you any waves, at least now...though hopefully, perhaps this will change later during the Spring?!
