As stated ‘’I am only an occasional customer from Canada” i hope my posting is received in good taste and not seen as misusing the forum. My goal is to promote the windsurfing stoke, and support windsurfing at the brick and mortar level which i see as an advantage to manufacturers and retailers everywhere.

Hurricane Irene & WIND-NC
I am only an occasional customer from Canada but am stealing the WIND-NC flag and waving it proud for a moment. I want to draw attention to Hurricane Irene’s aftermath, and it’s effects it must be having on the shop that makes everyone's favorite east coast windsurfing destination ‘’Cape Hatteras North Carolina’’ so special.
I intend to talk with Andy McKinney at WIND-NC today for the first time since summer. I can only imagine how having his shop severed from all walk in traffic is effecting sales, especially going into the freeze up season. At a time when we all are struggling with a bad economy it’s easy to imagine the effect a natural disaster would have on a business when it cuts you off from everyone. Checkout wind-nc.com for aftermath details.

I want to encourage all who are contemplating a windsurfing purchase to make it at WIND-NC. Big purchase or small, rash guard - sail / board, get on the phone/web and support one of windsurfing's greatest assets. From Windsurfing Magazine board tests, countless free clinics, event organization, web blogs, to daily care for his customers Andy and the WIND-NC staff have contributed to the sport in ways we can’t afford to lose. If you don’t need anything now, by a gift certificate.
I know Andy and WIND-NC will have their chin’s up and be weathering this Hurricane with the ease shown during Hurricane’s past. Let’s take this opportunity to show him some appreciation for all the stoke he has shown us over the years ! Go team !
