Dimitri Charges Hatteras at 40+ on 20081019

Postby sperry » Tue Oct 21, 2008 1:48 pm

This past weekend was rippin' down on the sandbar. Sunday saw gusts of what had to be above 50mph. I haven't looked at the iliesurf graphs for the weekend, but I was on the water and had trouble holding down a 7m '09 rebel (fully depowered) on my 127.

There were a handful of us riding from Kite Point (or, just below it as the beach was gone) on the sound side. But the real show was just beginning across the dunes in the ocean.

With the NNE wind and a nice swell, the conditions were ripe for anyone who wanted to take them on. Only one guy was in the ocean - at least in the immediate vicinity. That guy was Dimitri. No surprise really if you've seen him ride.

Anyway, I pulled out the camera and managed to get a few shots of him in the surf. I wish the pictures could have done the conditions justice, but you really had to be there to get the full effect.

A couple others launched but immediately ended up a few thousand meters downwind. Dimitri was the only one holding an edge... on a surfboard.

Enjoy... http://www.samperry.com/20081019_dimitri_hatteras

great pics,

we just got back from hatteras and many ocean sessions, but man, those waves looked so smooth and huge periods with stronger winds than we saw. great stuff.

riding with dimitri is always a must have if you get a chance.

definitely not conditions for the novice, or even semi expert. intense. respect must be paid to those who've got the chops for conditions like that. that's heavy water...
