We had a good share of windy days in May and here are some pictures from Lisa Brown from a recent session at Chapin.

Why did the surfers go to Cape Hatteras, a windsurfing mecca, in April?

Monday, 20 May, 2013

Marietta Hitzemann, surfing wahine A. To stare at the ocean and watch dolphins for a week. Actually, there’s surfing to be had on Cape Hatteras and at least one pro surfer from Buxton, NC. Sadly for me, I’d forgotten my contacts and had limited success with surfing while blind. But our week in Buxton (April 10-17, 2010) was […]

Stand up paddling with Penny Pug

Monday, 20 May, 2013

By Carrie Crook, surfing wahine I’ve wanted a stand up paddle (SUP) board ever since Sailworld gave us that great demo last summer. The demo gave us a great opportunity to try all the different SUP boards and learn enough of the basics to get us on our way with a piece of equipment that we could use anywhere and anytime […]

Travel tip from Bonaire: pack an extra sports bag

Monday, 20 May, 2013

Elizabeth Babich , windsurfing wahine Mothers learn early on that the art of bag packing is a prerequisite parenting skill.  In fact, months before delivery, it’s one of the first recommendations they make in the birthing class: “Pack the overnight bag for the hospital.”  The bag you take to the hospital is important; an initiation […]

Abby just turned 16 in October of 2009, so she’s five months younger than Jessica, who will be 17 in May of 2010. The current record holder […]

Can you surf in your diving gear?

Monday, 20 May, 2013

Sara Grady, surfing wahine I have a secret. I am also a diver. Chances are, if you see someone wandering around a parking lot in a wetsuit, they’re either going surfing (of some variety) or diving, but it seems never the twain shall meet. The diver’s realm is below the waves, the surfer’s realm is […]
