Figure 8 Day June 9,2007

Jenn Butler and I thought it was about time we get all of the Wahine’s together again so we pulled off our fifth Figure 8 Wahine Day at Paula Bushardt’s beach house. (Figure 8 is a private island just north of Wrightsville Beach, NC).

We had a great turnout with about 30 girls of all abilities and all ages. There were many different types of boards ridden too, ranging from Barbara Corey’s virgin blow up raft/sponge to Devon Plumer’s beastly longboard. A good time was had by all in the 1-2ft. surf which was actually rideable. Chris and Julian, a couple of local photographers, were kind enough to come out and take pictures. A big thanks goes out to those guys, especially for making the waves look bigger than they were and also for hanging out in the nearly unbearable heat. (Check out the photo of Leilani Pickett ripping up the small surf!)

As always, Paula gets a big thanks for letting us use the house for the day. I really enjoyed our pre-surf coffee clutch with her and a few others. We just sat around the table, reminisced, and got caught up in the “now”.

It is always a pleasure to meet new people and to catch up with some long time friends. I look forward to doing it again! It makes the flat days a little more bearable.

Here are a couple of links to the photos:
