Subtropical Storm Andrea churns away throwing of some good wind and swells to OBX

Ty Luckett of http://kitehatteras.net/ just sent some photos along of the high wind and wave entertainment served up by Subtropical Storm Andrea off OBX last Sunday, May 6, 2007.

Winds were reported ranging from 40 to 53 mph and seas to 15 ft. as this early subtropical system formed in place off of Hatteras.

Ty was out on a 7 m Omega and boosted a really big one.

That must have been one interesting session. Hopefully Ty can post some of his impressions out in this nuking session with a light and lively 7 m Omega.

Julian walks against the flow. I understand he received some aid in this extreme session, no details though. If you know what happened please pass them along. Glad he is ok.

No flat water in this session, waves all the way!

Looks like a fun, intense session, rider input would be welcome.

This just in from Bryan with Real Kiteboarding up in Hatteras.

Just wanted to let you know that Ty was boosting huge last weekend. We (REAL Kiteboarding) had a LF demo on Sunday. I was out riding earlier that day and got blown off my 7m. by the time the demo rolled around (10:00) Kite point was packed with cars watching Jason Slezak and Ty going trick for trick in the KP pool. Slezak was on a 6m Assault. They did a downwinder later that afternoon when those pictures were taken. the kites ranged from 7m to 3m waroos.
