116 Washington Avenue - A.K.A. Shred Shack
This morning, I woke up on the wrong side of my bed, fighting back the desire to skip my classes and go back to sleep. Then, from my bed, I peeked through the crack in my blinds and saw snow, in April! I rolled back over, dreaming of warm weather, white sand, and beautiful A-frames breaking on a pristine sandbar in the middle of the ocean. It’s time to go and find my beach.
On Friday, I’m going to pack up my boardshorts (read: wetsuit) and make the 5 hr treck down to a pristine sandbar in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean (Avon, NC) in search of a weekend of uninterrupted shredding of the surfboard, kiteboard, yak, fishing rod, or anything else I can find to shred while down there. In order to make this trip even better, I am seeking others to get all shralpy with me and join in on the shredfest.
Because this area has been hit really hard by some nor’easters lately, we will also spend some time picking up trash that has been pushed around in the storms, which will make this a service trip. We have some gloves and trash bags down there, so all you’ll need is to be willing to get to the trash before the ocean does.
We will be staying in my grandparent’s house and adventures will depend on the waves, wind, and what people going down want to do. We will leave on Friday afternoon after everyone gets out of class (or maybe before if people skip) and then get back sometime on Sunday night, all surfed out. As of now, I’m going to have to cap the trip at 4 people due to driving limitations, but if someone else has a worthy and capable car, we might be able to open up a couple more spots. Let me know in the trip questionnaire.
For this trip, just bring a beach towel or two and clothes that will get you through a slightly chilly weekend at the beach (make sure you have a light wind-breaking layer). If you have gear you want to bring down, make sure that you let me know so that we can make sure that it gets down there.
If you have any questions or want to swap some stories about shredding the gnar, shoot me an email (email@example.com), text or phone call (8049120206).
