The Paddlers are Coming!


This marks the sixth consecutive year for what has become the largest standup paddleboard race on the east coast. Make plans to participate or spectate during the 6th Annual West Marine Carolina Cup April 19th - 24th. Presented by Surftech, this year's race is bigger and better than ever! Athletes from far and wide are expected to attend this event, which kicks off the SUP race circuit season.

Along with demos and clinics plus before and after parties, the Carolina Cup features 4 courses: a kids course, the Harbor Island Recreational "fun" race, the Money Island open race and the coveted but treacherous Graveyard Elite Race.

In 2012, the Carolina Cup made the news as the largest race on the East Coast with over 400 paddlers turning out for the first day of races. In 2013, over 600 hit the water and over 700 paddlers participated in 2014! Last year's Carolina Cup was recognized as the largest SUP event in the world. This year is expected to be another record-breaker with around 800 paddlers expected! According to the event's organizers, "Competitors include Olympians, world-record holders, and champions in the disciplines of standup, prone, surfski, and outrigger canoe paddling."

Australia's Travis Grant will be back to defend his title as the male champion of the brutal 13.5-mile Graveyard race. According to Grant, "The Graveyard race is a very fitting name. It is just that, a tough one. Anyone can potentially win, there are a lot of different elements to get right: surf, flatwater, inlet currents, wind and there's always a slight bit of luck involved."

Grant defeated the 3-time title-holder last year, Danny Ching who has been ranked #3 in the world. Ching, who hails from Hermosa Beach, CA, will be back again this year as well! Grant and Ching will be joined by an impressive group of international competitors from over fifteen countries, including New Zealand, Australia, France, Canada, Spain, and Mexico.

An exciting new event will be unveiled during this year's competition: six-man Hawaiian outrigger canoes, or "OC-6", will be competing at noon on Sunday, April 24th. The Carolina Cup's race director Mark Schmidt believes that this will be the first event of its kind in the Wrightsville Beach area. Heats will take place around Harbor Island in Bradley Lightning outrigger canoes, which were commissioned by Reggie Barnes of Eastern Surf and Skate Supply. This is huge folks! Some of the biggest names in Hawaiian outrigger paddling are expected to attend. Race director Mark Schmidt reflected, "To see an event like this would typically require traveling to California or Hawaii. It will be a great show."

There will also be an outrigger clinic taught by designer Johnny Puakea, who is the founder of Puakea Designs-plus he's Danny Ching's coach! Other clinics and demonstrations scheduled throughout the five-day event will feature many of the top paddle experts in the SUP world, including Larry Cain, Travis Grant, Lina Augaitis, Dan Gavere, Dr. Bob Arnot, Fiona Wylde, and Zane Schweitzer.

Each clinic is unique and addresses a different SUP topic. Please be aware that clinics have a limited number of spaces, so register early to secure your spot. The event's Demo Zone will give visitors the chance to try boards, canoes, and a variety of equipment. In fact, around sixty vendors are slated to have the latest equipment, boards, and boats on display.

 The Blockade Runner Beach Resort will be the venue host once again and serve as the hub for all starts and finishes. Please note that a portion of event proceeds will benefit The Ocean of Hope, a team of paddlers dedicated to the sea of people affected by cancer.

Stunning Wrightsville Dunes Condo for Sale - Unit#3-F


The latest report from real estate data tracker Trulia revealed that listing prices in the Wrightsville Beach area have been slightly lower than this time last year. For house hunters this is positive news  as we sail into our busy spring season! Of course any savvy house hunter knows that location is everything and most "locations" can't hold a candle to oceanfront. Perhaps it is time to consider one of our most desirable listings: Wrightsville Dunes, Unit#3-F, located at 2514 N. Lumina Avenue. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo is not only oceanfront, it also has sweeping views of the surrounding saltmarsh.

Tucked away on the north end of the island where peace and tranquility prevail, this top floor end unit will certainly not be on the market for long. Thanks to the fact that it is an end unit, there is plenty of energizing natural light. The views are truly spectacular. From the front of the home, there's the glistening Atlantic, and to the back, a nature lover's delight: the saltmarsh that is home to an abundance of wildlife.


An open floor plan and classic interior features enhance the spacious first floor. Wood floors, white-washed wainscotting and a vaulted, polished beam ceiling convey a cheerful ambiance. Since glass sliders open directly onto an oceanfront deck, it's hard to be anything except cheerful!



The unit's updated kitchen is filled with all of those must-haves that today's discriminating buyers seek. Crisp white appliances and cabinetry, a large pass-through window, easy to clean tiled backsplashes and a roomy pantry make it a pleasure to use.

A spiral staircase leads up to the next level. The master and two other bedrooms all have built-in storage and large windows. The condo's master suite faces both west and soundside, and offers a ringside seat to each evening sunset. Of course one of the bedroom spaces would be ideal for a home office or media room.

Along with its unbeatable north end location, Wrightsville Dunes boasts enviable amenities. There are two oceanfront swimming pools, a tennis court and several private walkways to the beach.
When you'd like to see this property in person, please contact one of our experienced agents!

Community Spotlight - Plastic Ocean Project



As the purveyors of some of the most gorgeous real estate along the Eastern Seaboard, we take great pride in our community. That is why we strongly support the local and global efforts of the Plastic Ocean Project or POP. If you appreciate the natural beauty of our region and know as we do that it is irreplaceable, we encourage you to get involved with the work of P.O.P.

UNC-Wilmington is home to the first college chapter of POP. Samantha Athey is the chapter's current president. Last year for her efforts she was awarded the Lumina News 2015 Person of the Year award. The group is enthusiastically working within our local community to foster awareness and clean up area beaches, waterways, creeks and rivers. One of their biggest initiatives is to discourage and significantly reduce single use plastics. Those are items such as plastic grocery bags, restaurant utensils, cups and drinking straws. The Earth Day Network reports that, "Currently about 300 million tons of plastic are produced each year to make bags, bottles, packages, and other commodities for people all over the world. Unfortunately, only about ten percent of this plastic is properly recycled and reused."

An alarming amount of that plastic waste ends up in our coastal waters and poses a direct threat to marine wildlife. POP notes that, "Plastic constitutes approximately 90 percent of all trash floating on the ocean's surface, with 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile." That is why the UNC-W POP chapter is spreading the word to local businesses in an effort to get them on board with the Ocean Friendly Establishments agreement. POP is working with the Surfrider Cape Fear chapter and Wrightsville Beach Keep it Clean to encourage local businesses to be more mindful of their use of disposable plastics. The biggest step right now has been identified as limiting the use of plastic drinking straws. Please use this link to discover which businesses are already on board: http://www.plasticoceanproject.org/ocean-friendly-establishments.html

Please join the Hardee Hunt and Williams team and together let's become more mindful of our beautiful environment. For inspiration, check out these 3 facts taken from POP's website:

An average US citizen throws away an average of 185 pounds of plastic each year.
A discarded one liter plastic bottle breaks down into enough small pieces to potentially end up on every mile of every beach in the world.
US residents use around 380 billion plastic bags annually-that is over 1200 bags per resident each year.

Two Super Sundays in a Row!



With Super Bowl Sunday behind us, don't let this coming Sunday get away from you. If you're scratching your head, please note that this Sunday is Valentine's Day. Considering the naturally romantic backdrop of Wrightsville Beach, it will be easy to show your Valentine how much you care. Of course, nothing gets that message across quite like a new beach house!

If a coastal property just isn't in the cards right now, here are a few suggestions for the Valentine's Day holiday…

Weekend Escape - Check with the beach hotels and resorts to discover the different packages they are offering. From the north end to the south end, there are plenty of choices! Here are a few links to get you started: http://www.ihg.com/holidayinnresorts/hotels/us/en/wrightsville-beach/wrgnc/hoteldetail , http://blockade-runner.com/specials-packages/packages/

Wrightsville Beach Scenic Cruises - No boat? No worries! Just leave the cruising to the seafaring folks at WB Scenic Cruises. They have several excursions to choose from, including sunset cruises all Valentine's weekend and trips to Masonboro Island. If your Valentine is an angler, a fishing charter may be the perfect way to say, "I love you." For schedules and prices, visit their link here: http://www.wrightsvillebeachscenictours.com/

Don't Make Dinner - Make Reservations - The area has so many wonderful dining establishments to choose from, that a better idea may be breakfast, lunch and dinner! Although there are plenty of excellent choices on the island, it may also be fun to cruise into town and discover a new spot. The Port City is quickly becoming a hotspot for foodies, so regardless of your sweetie's taste, there should certainly be a restaurant that fits the bill. Please use these link for ideas, they include a number of Wrightsville Beach options: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurants-g49673-Wilmington_North_Carolina.html - http://www.wilmingtonnc.com/dining/

DIY Valentines Day - If you agree that the best things in life are free, this one's for you! Weather and conditions permitting, make some plans and surprise your Valentine with an action-packed afternoon. Perhaps a walk around the loop, stroll along the beach, SUP cruise or refreshing February surf session will be good choices? Of course you'll want to include a homemade card and home-cooked dinner! And remember, the more you save now, the faster you'll be able to save up for that Wrightsville Beach oceanfront condo.
