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!

Paddle out at Avon on February 28th was just flying on the Lost Rocket Redux. Note the beautiful 2-4 foot waves off Avon producing some classic OBX barrels.

Surfboard dimensions — 6’ 1”, wide, volume 39.5 L. Fins — FCS 2, five boxes. Config — Large Performer, Shaper Series, Quad.

OBX Wave Report Feb 27 — Heat, Storms, Sea Level Rise, Waves

Good waves forecast this week as two fronts are predicted to sweep through, one tonight, and one Friday. The primary driver being an easterly wind pattern pushing swells in from the stormy, Winter North Atlantic. Larger discussion of climate change related impacts to extreme weather, heat, and sea level rise. Let’s get on board for the rapid global deployment of clean energy so we can save the OBX and so many other beautiful coastlines.
