Riders are packing their bags and preparing to head to the East Coast for the Wind NC Hatteras Wave Jam next week.

This year’s top riders to watch include last year’s winner Kevin Pritchard from Maui, along with Boujmaa Guilloul from Morocco. Boujmaa is traveling to the Outer Banks for his first time. He is looking to secure his overall AWT ranking for the 2015 season. Russ Faurot and Morgan Noireaux will also be top pros to look out for at the event.

Wind NC, a local shop owned by Andy McKinney has stepped up to be the Title Sponsor this year. Andy has been supporting the AWT from the beginning, and is happy to welcome windsurfers from around the world to the town of Avon.

New to the event this year will be SUP events during low/light wind periods of the contest window. Hatteras has many beaches and sand bars to explore. Bring your SUP and get ready to watch your favorite windsurfers on SUP boards.
