RipCurl's Right Coast Raid Tour Stops in Nags Head
Today, we had the best of the best from the surfing world hit the water just north of the Nags Head Fishing Pier. RipCurl's Right Coast Raid Tour is in Nags Head today, and featured some world class surfing in some surprising surf generated by the afternoon NE wind. Conditions were messy onshore, but these guys ripped it up for the crowd of judges and onlookers for the contest/event! Tonight, the festivities continue at the Outer Banks Boarding Company (OBBC). See some photos from the BBQ party which included great food, music, autographs, and videos!
