Hatteras Windsurfing Guide- Sound Launch- The Buxton Slick


Click to Enlarge

If you want to work on some freestyle moves, the Buxton Slick is the place to be!  You can head down there in almost any wind direction, but it’s really best on a WSW to WNW.  Rig up a tiny freestyle fin, and be cautious of the shallow spots.  I usually recommend rigging up for some extra power, too, since the wind can get a bit junky as it goes over the islands.

We usually launch from D’s spot or the Canadian Hole and make our way over.
