All,

Time to run the annual arriving time contest for when we arrive in OBX (Outer Banks aka, Cape Hatteras) this week. 13th - 27th of Oct.

I'm super late on getting this out, so reply asap.

Contest closes once we leave, so you have only about a day and a half to enter your guess.

Rules:
1) Post your time of arrival. Time will be Eastern Standard time.
2) Time is entered the exact moment we cross the first houses in Mirlo Beach which is by S - Turns and where the old Nights at Rodanthe house used to be.
3) 3 prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
4) Enter once only.


Hints:
1) We're leaving Friday the 12th. Morning or afternoon, not yet sure. Depends somewhat on the winds for Saturday. Hint, hint.
2) It's taken us anywhere between 19-22 hours in the past. Bob and Jens are exempt from entering.
3) We're taking any rock shaking acts to help with the winds.

Below is some info on the trip in general not related to the contest.

I didn't post anything yet about the trip due to it completely filling up this year by word of mouth and by others who have wanted to go in previous years. I'm very humbled by this and stoked on having an incredible house right on the sound.

Here's a link to the house.

http://www.outerbeaches.com/OuterBanks/ ... QuinnInn3/

There are 2 more houses from our area during the same time, so it's bound to be a great trip all around. Can't wait to see everyone.

There's been a lot of surf board riding in recent years and we'll have the following for us to all use and try.

Surf Boards (all demos):
1) 2 Slingshot Dialer 5'10" light wind board and Celeritas 5'11" light to medium wind board.
2) 2 Cabrinha boards to be delivered in OBX. Skillet and Sub woofer light wind board.
3) Lib Tech surf board that is being tried as a kite board. Bomber construction and light weight. 6'0"
4) Litewave 6'1" DV8 - Full deck pad thin profile design. Also bringing a new 5'7" DV8 for sale.
5) Underground 6'2" Freewave - Full deck pad thin profile design.

Some SUP's from JP Australia (Cruiser Carbon, All Around and Wide Body) are on the way in case there's no wind.

Kites from Cabrinha, Slingshot, Epic, Blade and RRD to try. Might be a few others also and going to do our best to get a good light wind test session going on some of the better light wind kites be theses companies.

Axis Kiteboards is taking over where Underground left off and I'll have some of the first Axis boards in the country to try. Thanks Adrian Roper.

If anyone is interested in any feedback on any of this gear, let me know. We have an incredible crew who is very forthright in opinions and feedback on gear.

Good luck with the contest.

Bob

9:11am as in Carrera ( had to get the Porsche number in before Tueiting did, even though the real model number is 997. My Cayman was a 987... wouldn't work. So I stuck with the icon)

I'm extending the time to enter until Midnight tonight (Friday the 12th - Central Time Zone) due to the short notice on the contest.

Jon Tueting is in at 9:01 EST. Must have seen his 911 taken. lol.

Keep em coming.

Sorry for the delay on the results. Had a login problem yesterday and today.

DRUMROLL........

DRUMROLL........

10:11 AM EDT is the arrival time.

How did it go? We had a 2.5 hour delay in middle of no-where VA (Ruthers Glen) where the wheel of the jet ski was literally ready to fall off. We got super lucky that a guy at the gas station at 3:00 AM told us we had a wheel problem. So the earlier guesses should have been close to the target, but in the end, it looks like Jeff is the winner at 1 minute off and I'll have to check the chicago forum and facebook to check on everyone else's guesses.

Thanks for entering and I'll contact the winners on the prizes.

Looks like 4 of 5 days of wind coming, so the crew is getting excited. Fund ay today though with 75 degrees, no wind and SUP on the ocean.

Bob

Final results.

10:11 is the time.
1st place = Jeff Folgert with 10:10 (Off by 1 minute)
2nd place = Dave Zager with 10:13 (Off by 2 minutes)
3rd place - Anderson Bortoletto with 10:05 (Off by 5 minutes)

One hell of a close contest.
