Phil and Mike in Cape Hatteras 2016

We had another great trip to Cape Hatteras again for 2016. It's not only my favorite place to windsurf, but also my favorite place to just chill out and relax. Phil and his brother Tom were there for a couple week with us and we had wind 6 days a week which isn't uncommon for Cape Hatteras in April. The first 5 days of the trip were a consistent 30-35 knots, so 4.0 and 3.6 was the call. I also had some fun with the 3.6 on my 81 liter Starboard Flare. Perfect for when the wind is cranking and the 93 liter is just too big.

Big thanks to my wife Christina, Ace, and Dima for shooting!

OBX-WIND 2016 Long distance race

It started as a simple idea to have a fun race out to the reef and back which is about 3 miles with maybe 20 people. It snowballed into 106 racers, 2 safety boats, 2 jetskis, 1 hobiecat, 2 top level PWA sailors, and 2 separate 12 mile races. This is the start of something very special...
