Nuclear Butter at 10am

We rolled at 9am, to beat the heat. The Basin was blowing WSW 25-30, super low tide, and the best fun you could possibly have down there. At 11:20 am, the wind started the SSW shift and dropped below 20. The wind was returning at noon, but the sweet WSW was gone.
Z you call that a jibe? haha. Z tried my windsurfer today. He's getting closer to joining the windsurfers.

Twisted to the max and pulled flat, yet insanely balanced. Sick!

Now this is a jibe!

Honkin Windy

We hit the south end at noon. Wind was SSW at 20-25. The best side shore wind we've seen in awhile. By 2pm it was 25-30. Butt kicking good wind! Sail flatten to the max

Lion on the Beach

More 2012 Naish info

Most interesting in this video to me, is the black area is not black paint, but unpainted, showing the carbon underneath. So maybe I was correct in my earlier speculation that all the black nose cones seen on Hokua's, is actually carbon to make them ding proof. The new dual density deck pad sounds appealing.

Basin Parking Situation


Hello Mr. Fisher,
Thank you for your comments and I apologize for any inconvenience you have encountered.  The Ft. Fisher boat ramp renovations were performed using Coastal Recreation Fishing License (CRFL)funds, Motorboat Registration funds and Division of Coastal Management funds.  Due to the variety of funding sources we included facilities for all types of users.

Included at the site is a temporary offloading parking space for single vehicles near the ramp and beach area for the kayak and canoe user.  Also at the site is approximately 15 single vehicle spaces and 26 vehicles with trailer spaces.  Single vehicle spaces being almost 40% of the parking, which is substantially more than any of our other 207 free sites.  I have also witnessed on several occasions quite a few folks parked at the site with trailers full of canoes and kayaks that can also utilize the trailer spaces.  Pic attached.  I have also included aerial photography from October of 2010 that shows 22 trailer boats at the site. 

Currently, the site is managed by the Wildlife Resources Commission and I'm afraid if you are not parked in an appropriately marked spot for the type vehicle you have you could be subject to ticketing or towing.  It is an extremely busy site and unfortunately we didn't have an unlimited amount of property to accommodate all of the users all of the time.  I would suggest getting there early in the morning on the busy weekends or holidays to reserve your parking space.  I hope you continue to enjoy our access areas provided free of charge and again apologize for any inconvenience.    

Sincerely,

Erik D. Christofferson
