ECWF Cape Cod and Hatteras


Ladies and gentlemen, get your race gear ready, and polish your freestyle tricks - two East Coast Windsurfing Festivals are coming up in September and October! Both will include racing, freestyle competition, demo gear, a raffle for participants, and lots of fun!

The first ECWF will take place in September at Kalmus Beach in Hyannis, Cape Cod. The planned date is September 15 and 16 (with a social event on Friday evening before the action), but if the wind forecast looks bad, we'll move the ECWF Cape Cod to September 22-23rd, so that the demo gear from Fanatic and Duotone can be tested in planing conditions. This will be the sixth year in a row for the ECWF Cape Cod, so register now and join the fun!

The second ECWF this year, the first annual ECWF Hatteras,  will be run by Mike Burns at Ocean Air in Avon, NC, in the week of October 20-27. We are very excited to have an ECWF-style event at one of the best windsurfing spots in the US! The huge amounts of fun we had at Mike's original ECWF events on Long Island were a major reason why Nina and I started the ECWF Cape Cod in 2013. Chances are good that we'll have one day of high-wind racing and a day of light-wind racing, plus a day of freestyle competition, in Hatteras, since competition will take place on the days with the best wind between Monday, 10/22, and Thursday, 10/25. You can register for the ECWF Hatteras at www.ecwindfest.org/register_hatteras.php. Hope to see you there, and at the ABK camps on Cape Cod and Hatteras a week before the events to learn new tricks!
