Hurricane Earl blew through Eastern North Carolina on Thursday evening, September 2nd. Wind-NC was closed from Thursday, September 2nd through Saturday, September 4th due to the mandatory evacuation of Hatteras Island. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Luckily, Hatteras Island was relatively unharmed by the close encounter with Hurricane Earl. Route 12 is now open to all traffic (albeit a bit wet, so take your time), and most of the local businesses should be back up and running within a day or two. Wind-NC will resume partial operations with normal store business hours on Sunday, September 5th. We should return to full operations by Monday, September 6th. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
If you’re on Hatteras Island and looking for skateboards, we’ve got ’em! Decks, Wheels, Trucks, Bearings, Bushings, Shortboard and Longboard Completes! We just received a giant shipment of Arbor Longboards, and man they are looking sick! Everything from the 26″ Pocket Rocket Bamboo Deck (Complete with 8″ Gullwing Mission trucks and Arbor 65mm 78a street wheels) to The 44″ Blunt (Complete with 10″ Gullwing Chargers and 70mm 78a wheels). The Arbors all have either a Bamboo or Hawaiian Koa top sheet on ’em- sustainably farmed, and carefully oriented to produce a one of a kind flex return. All wood by-product is reclaimed for re-use, and the ultra clear grip is composed of long lasting crushed recycled glass. So, not only do these sticks rip, but they’re very carefully put together to reduce strain on our environment. Ditch your car, save on gas, and Skate To Work or School!!!
If you’re more of a park rat, swing on by and check out the decks and completes from Element, Habitat, Girl, PlanB, Alien Workshop, Speed Demons, and Hoopla. Also, Wheels from Spitfire, Bearings from Bones, Lucky and HKD, and Trucks from Independent, Theeve, Royal, Thunder, and Randall.
