AWT Hatteras Wave Jam Scored!

Wow, what an event!  All divisions have been run and conditions were excellent for a Hatteras wavesailing competition!  Ranging classic Lighthouse for the Pros with mast+ set bombers and action captured in photos and video unseen before in Hatteras, to south side clean lines of chest+ set surf for all other divisions, Tuesday and Wed delivered the goods for awesome exposure of when it is on fire here on the islands.

Here is one of the most impressive run at lip I have ever seen in Hatteras! Go Boujma Guilloul on this epic shot!  Interestingly, coming off the lip, he was completely engulfed in whitewater where nothing but white was seen from the beach.  Then suddenly he appeared out ahead of the mountain of white with sail in hand and recovered.  He continued the ride into "no mans land" where he spent some time recovering; however, with this first hit, it was the most impressive perhaps seen in Hatteras!  Epic!

All in all, see the AWT web site for the latest news and final results for all divisions!  Killer event and stoked for all that make it out here to catch classic "on fire" Hatteras wavesailing conditions!  Also big shout out to Sam Bittner for leading the AWT again this year, and Andy McKinney at Wind-NC for supporting another excellent year as title sponsor for the tour stop!
