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.!

once around the wreck/labor day weekend

The great poet laureate of Margaritaville once said:

” It is hard to reason with the hurricane season”

This statement is a fact when it comes to planning for this year’s

Once around the Wreck Paddle.

Our event will be held on Labor Day weekend Saturday, Sept. 2 at 10am.

Let’s get everyone on the beach by 9:30ish.

As of now the weather is looking most promising for a Saturday morning paddle. Light winds are forecast for the morning with the breeze picking up later in the day. (Unlike Sunday’s forecast which has the sailors jumping for joy!)

Please bring your pfd! The aqua cops have been around often and we don’t need to raise funds to bail someone out of the brig!

Join us as we gather all manner of paddle craft for a trip around the Sherkston ship wreck. Then gather in front of ledge 12  for some post paddle treats, make new friends, catch up with old friends and swap some stories.

A great tradition to begin the countdown to the end of the summer of 2017
Reef Warrior swag will be available for purchase.

If any one would like to donate some time to help set up or any goodies to share (morning snacks/water/soft drinks/ice,  ect.) please stop by and see Lou or Gail at ledge 12.

Please spread the word and let’s attempt to get over 100 paddlers involved!

See you all Saturday morning! Stay tuned for updates! (just in case :))
