Regarding Wind-NC and it’s staff:

Thank you so much for all of the emails and phone calls expressing concern and offering help and places to stay.  We couldn’t feel more loved!!  Rest assured, we’re all safe and healthy.  The shop and our homes weathered the storm with very minor damages.  Our hearts go out to everyone who has lost property, or worse, a loved one, from this storm.  I know that the whole East Coast was affected by the hurricane, and damages in the Northeast were especially severe.  I hope everyone can have a speedy recovery and get things back to normal ASAP.

Moving Forward:

We are back on the island, we are open daily from at least 10am-5pm, and we are happy to process online orders and offer free shipping (on standard size items over $50).  It doesn’t matter if all you need is a fin screw, we’ll get it to you so that you don’t miss your next sesh!  Please order directly from this website via our secure Paypal checkout, or call the shop to place an order.  If you need assistance, please call or use the email form on the “Contact” page.  If you don’t see something on our website, but wonder if we can get it for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thanks very much for your business, every little bit is appreciated!
