Mid-April Wave Action In Hatteras!

Its been going off in Hatteras over the past week! Strong S and NE wind, killer wrap swell, and beefy leftovers, and lots of visiting crew in town to catch it.  Of course, first off, I have missed most of it as I was out of town during the NE window where all the action happened on the south side with killer wrap swell.  However, I did catch the kick off S and follow though SSW with very fun surf conditions in Nags Head riding the trusty SeaLion. 

Today, following the past 6 days of nuking NE wind, the wind switched SSW and really cleaned up the surf.  From Nags Head to Avon, Surfline was all green with excellent conditions breaking on the outside bars.  I caught it at Conch St in Nags Head riding the Sealion.  Surprisingly, no surfers or SUPs were out and I enjoyed the surf all to my self.  Down south in Avon, the local crew caught it at Rmp 38 and Keith posted this killer pic riding backside on the Sealion on logo high bomber!

Over the weekend, the South side was firing and the action was scored at Izzy's and the Washout down near Hatteras Inlet (location of the 2013 AWT Hatteras Wave Jam contest).  Caught this shot of Charlie in for one of those classic looooong line setups with wrap swell firing!
See more of the south side action here!

All in all, a killer mid-April Hatteras wave jam!  Welcome relief following completion of taxes for 2013!

I love this post. I can almost smell the salty air from the ocean. I have to plan a trip to catch some waves. Perhaps Hatteras! Thanks for the great post.
