OBX Wind = Awesome event

Caseys Blog:

Wow that was one crazy action packed fun event.  one of the most fun events I have ever been a part of. I know I am this crazy waterman who does everything and anything on the water, but Windsurfing is still my favorite thing to do, its just so dang exciting. whether its Hitting the Lip or going as fast as you can the rush is addicting.

I haven’t done any Windsurfing racing in 19yrs, But I felt I still had the need for speed. hahaha.  Even thou I gave it everything I had in the tank, between the rust and lack of horsepower. I couldn’t knock off the 2 Big dogs (Pros) Tyson Poor and Phil Soltysiak.  They had great board speed.  Congrads to them.👍  At the end of the day I am pretty ecstatic with a 1st (master) and 3rd overall in the very competitive Downwind slalom racing.   I also got 8th overall in the Long distance race, there my lack of gear really made it tough to do any better. trying to hold down a 116L board in 40 knots gusts is quite challenging. 😆

Hatteras once again show cased how much it is “world class” and a truly special place. With perfect conditions, and off the chart fun. bring on OBX-Wind 2019. 😎👍

Turning the Page, 2017 Session Recap

Casey’s Blog:

Well 2017 is going down as “Awesome”.   It was Pretty much a repeat of 2016 except supercharged.  Its was another year were Dareef was Liquid all year, that made  accomplishing my goal of 100 days in the waves easy, and now that I have found my niche in the Foiling game , with “Surf foiling” its going to be sooo easy to get 100days every year.

Now that I am looking back at the last 12 months it was a incredible year of so many first. Building 2 Special Boards (Red Barron, Mystery Machine) that really broke the boundaries of what is possible was awesome by itself.  Then to be truly at the for front of an emerging sport with Surf & Surf wind foiling is such a addicting rush.  I will never forget the luck of catching and experiencing some of the best hurricane surf in Hatteras ever!  Last but not lest,  getting the chance to live on one of the best fresh water surf spots in the world for 100+ sessions, Its hard to imagine a better life.  But hey! ya never know, Bring on 2018 and Da stats.!
