April 2011 Hatteras Trip

Postby adseguy » Thu Apr 21, 2011 8:43 am

So we are done with half the first week in Hatteras and here are a few pics. It's a great group of 7 guys in the house for this week then mid week myself and a few others leave while others are coming in. Epic sound downwinders in the sound. We are located right by the real slick which works in any direction. The wind has been unrelenting here. We are all getting bruised and beaten, but we just keep going out. I'll get some videos up real soon too.

Made a video boys. For those that don't know I lost my GoPro camera in a VERY epic crash thathad my head hitting sand under a few inches of water. I was fine, but the GoPro was lost. I didn't buy another until the last few days so I was not running off of many shots, but thanks to Jens and others for holding this thing!

As usual let me know if you liked it. Can't wait to get a video done for the Chicago area guys!

As usual, I really appreciate it. I 'm not exactly a left brained (or is it right brained....which ever the creative side is) type of person so if I'm doing good in that field I'm happy.

Ben - Ahh yes, the hand drag. One of my favorites too. It's all about timing and being able to hold a jump that is only a few inches off the water. Just move the kite slowly over the top of that wind window and at the end (timing) pull hard for a kiteloop.
