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. 😎👍
