NE and More NE!

Bill with a backside aerialSince Saturday afternoon, it has been blowing sailable NE in the mid 20mph range! I cashed in a short evening session in Nags Head this past Saturday, missed it yesterday due to lack of decent waves, and today banked at Lighthouse Beach in Buxton. Sunny skies, cool dry NE wind, warm ocean water, and a head high swell provided fun times for today's session! Caleb, Keith, Jim, and I caught it along with some surfers and a few kiteboarders. We experienced typical Lighthouse conditions with head high fairly clean set waves and strong side to side-on NE wind. Lots of wave hits, jumps, backloops, etc... all good fun during the multi-day NE wind event.

I have a bunch of GoPro footage, along with some beach side video to work though.

Tomorrow, the call is Ocracoke as we are banking on the swell finally wrapping down to that area. Charlie and Dan were down there today, and reported small but clean surf. Hopefully tomorrow, the swell will fill in down there for a chest to head high playground?!

Stay tuned for the upcoming video report showcasing action from today, and hopefully tomorrow?!

Checked in a the lighthouse early and saw Caleb flopping around in the onshore mess. Luke headed to down in the afternoon to check out the surf and had some pretty funny comments about the windsurfers. It was my good fortune miss it again!
