Luckily, once the tide switched around and started pulling back out, everything reorganized. Just in time to rig down to a 4.2!! Even then I got yanked over the front while trying to drive down the line on a few waves... man that wind was punchy! Anyway, the sunset sesh was sweet, to say the least! I don't know that I've ever seen a bigger, redder, sun make contact with the dunes... It was very distracting...
Bill posted up a bunch of great pictures on OBX Beach Life (Thanks for shooting, Keith and Martine). Hint- if you click on a picture, a slideshow comes up, with captions.
While rigging, I snapped a few pics too:
I also tied on the ol' boom cam. I've had a bunch of requests for pictures of the GoPro Wide setup that I've been using, so here y'all go:
And here's what I got for video from the early sesh, on a 5.0 with the weird high tide waves. When am I going to learn to save the batteries for the real deal footage??? Oh well, something's better than nothing, right? :) Enjoy!
