Arrived here late last night after a long day travelling especially as only just got back from the British Champs there was no wind here in Hateras today, well I tell a lie it was 1-2mph straight up and Dimitri put up the proto Infinity, we were all convinced it would even go up, then he went out on a sup....it was peaking at 3mph!!!

It was mad..took loads of vid and pics..truly amazing..then we had a sup in some pretty heavey waves!
Took this photo just before I went in....heavey waves!!

It was f'ing big today!
Sandy is really kicking in now, got to the beach (ocean side) at 8am and Dimitri had already been out for half hour.
I decided to try the 5m Renegade as it was already pretty mental winds, there were film crews everywhere...and in my face when launching in extremely hard conditions.

Only D and myself went out, I was pleased just to get out off the beach asi twas such a heavey shore dump and then out the back people were calling 15feet!

Didnt get many photo's in the surf, think D may have a few but not seen them yet.
Managed to get a few from other kiters here that were there on the beach.

When we finished the 17mile downwinder in cross on from the left (back hand for me) I was interviwed by NBC News live.

They could not believe I had stayed on longer here just to kite Sandy lol

NBC News


Dimitri in the thick of it!


Just me and D out and he still drops in on me! lol

Oh dear, they are shutting down Philly airport for the next three days ( I was meant to fly on Tuesday)

http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nightly-news/49590379/#49590377

D pumped up the 2.5m Tutor today and the Police and film crews once again showed up

We had an interesting drive back from D's to our place late tonight....the roads were all flooded so it was foot to the floor!

May try wakeboarding it behind the car tomorrow!

Sandy has now passed north of here and the swell has dissapeared as quickly as it came.



It's gone really cold here now though with N.E winds.
There were thousands of dead star fish etc washed up on the ocean side shorline this morning too.


Anyone need anything Epic let me know, especially apparel like hoodies etc Wink

I was present for this(obviously before Sandy) we were amazed that Dimitri was even going to attempt to launch the kite let alone then even think about getting on the water with a SUP
Not exactly exciting but impressive all the same

Just seen this photo, the houses top left were nearly wiped out a year ago when Irene hiy hatteras, they were all leaning over then when we went in May they had jacked them back upright...looks like they may have just survived this time.

The road is damaged beyond repair though and is still only open to 4x4 and the bridge's are still closed so ferry still for now.

The other thing about the photo is it shows the "sound" on the left and the ocean on the right, so flat water or waves are only ever a stone throw away!




I was standing on top of that dune...now washed over the road when i took tghe photo on page 1 of this thread.
