Mirlo Inlet, and South Ocracoke Wavesailing!

We basically have a new Inlet which has formed at the north end of Rodanthe. Unfortunately, a housing sub-division located there has blocked the natural formation of this inlet to transpire and run its course to the sound. Soon however, decisions will need to be made in how to "connect" Hatteras Island villages to the northern OBX. Beyond the Oregon Inlet Bridge issues, ocean overwash and new inlet formation is on our doorsteps.

Mirlo Beach this afternoon around 3:30pm. Good luck to all those attempting to vacate Hatteras Island including Emmanuel and Dimitri! Grab a Cutch Tuna Burger at Hot Tuna! I don't think you will be going anywhere for a while...

A victim of the housing collapse of a different sort...the wrath of the Atlantic Ocean this weekend!

On the windsurfing side, some shots from the Southside of Ocracoke yesterday. The only place that seemed to be working oceanside during the gale N wind! Looked like quite an adventure for all who made it down there.
