Your Missing Out on Some Real FUN!

Your Missing Out on Some Real FUN!

OBX Outer Banks, NC – Yesterday, leftover swell from the recent string of NE wind remained on the east facing beaches providing some really fun summer time surf!  The standard surfing crew had it in the morning when the swell was up and the tide was pushing near low with very light offshore W wind.  By late afternoon, the wind switched SSE and increased to perfect “Light Air Wavesailing” strength hovering around 10 to 15 mph!  I signed off work a little early and headed out to Enterprise St in Nags Head.  Solid waist+ set waves were breaking nicely on the outer bar and though the tide was a little high and the surf was mushy, on the SeaLion it […]
