Oct 1 NNE at Canadian Hole, OBX NC
The last time I was on my 85L exo wave was the end of July at the Basin. That was 2 straight days of SW with the 5.2/85L combo. Yesterday evening I sailed the same kit on the 85L stick with Dale Bendula. Dale was on a 95L slalom board with 5.5 and passing me on each run. We worked it out so that when he jibed I would too from a distance behind, he would catch up midway, pass then repeat jibe so it was great sailing with a buddy for a change! He covered more ground but I could out jump him, at least yesterday :]
The Raleigh crew (Triangle Windsurfing Club) is sailing up at Salvo this weekend too. I'm looking forward to putting faces to names! Sounds like a lot of excitement for the sport with those folks.
The wind forecast has changed for the next few days. Looks a little lighter with NE switching to NW towards Monday. The surf has been massive but should be dropping to a more manageable level starting today. Hopefully we'll be wave sailing and SUP surfing soon too. More updates to come.
The 9' Mana is at Wind NC. Wow.
