Big waves are coming to the Outer Banks driven by a series of ocean gales. Just completed surf session #14 and have had the pleasure of teaching a new surfer as well. Lots of motivation to get out into the waves!

Went on a Dawn Patrol surf session with a new surfer today. Surf instruction is fun! good waves in the 3-5 foot range at Jennette’s Pier. A stormy ocean and gale force winds are likely to kick up big surf this week.

Sick Barrel Wipeout at Avon Pier on February 28

This beautiful barrel got away from me at Avon yesterday. Got board into a nearly perfect position. But didn’t quite get the rail set before the wave face rapidly steepened. The result was me taking a splash in the barrel as the board got pulled up and over the falls inside the barrel. I’m on the hunt for another one of these beautiful beasts to dance with. We’ll get there!

Above is a still image from inside the barrel as the board was hurled over the falls. So gorgeous!

OBX Wave Report Feb 25 — Nor’easter Light

A light nor’easter sweeps across the Outer Banks bringing cooler weather, rain, and larger 2-4 foot surf. Weather expected to improve tomorrow with decent surf conditions expected. Out west, a severe storm system hammers California with heavy precipitation.
