I just returned from the Awesome OBX-WIND 2019 windsurfing event in Cape Hatteras. What a week of soo much fun and Non-stop action. The weather and conditions were great, and the vibe was even better. definitely a highlight of the year.
As for racing, my expectations were pretty low this year, as I had all new gear and was completely out of shape from not being in the water for 4 months. With a couple sips of rum to go along with all my experience in the need for speed. I am super happy with a 2nd place finish in the very competitive and famous Long distance race. As for the slalom racing which is my favorite, the winds were too light for my gear and I couldn’t get going. which was a bummer but thats how mother nature works sometimes.
I have to give a big shout out to, WIND-NC, Goya Windsurfing, CNCFins, Tectonics fins. If it wasn’t for the best gear in the world there would be no Zoom, Zoom. I cant wait for next year hopefully see ya all there. https://oceanairsports.com/pages/obx-wind-2019
