I cant rember, they had a few of those shots in the mag a month or two ago... If i rember it was the first hurricane this fall that stayed off the coast. I think it was Danielle, we had so much action there from mid august to early september i can't rember. I am pretty sure that was Danielle though

June in the OBX... I surf it often. If there is a loggable wave in vb then there will probably be a ridable or even rip-able wave in southern outer banks. I would bring a retro over a log or funboard. When the waves are little down there they break in really shallow water and move really fast.
PS most of those 2 foot days in nags head will be 3-4 down south. Nags head is were the tourists go, the stretch from rodanthe to the lighthouse is where the surfers go. (dont get me wrong, there are a lot of damn fine surfers living in nags head / kdh, im talking travelers)

Remember, he said end of June. Tropical energy hasn't really started yet, and summer flatness has basically set in. Expect lots of SE background swell, mostly logable but occasionally 3 ft on the right tide/sandbar.
Also, although everyone has mentioned that driving out of town south will get you bigger waves, conditions can change drastically as well in that 40 min drive. Believe me, the drive south is definitely worth it, just expect more intense winds/conditions. Hatty faces a different direction than Nags Head.
And again, like everyone said, things can change quickly down there!

i saw it said end of june
We all agree though it can get good, come prepared. Like i said if i could bring only one board i would bring a shrotboard that grovels well, ROcket/ dumpser diver/ white diamond . Stubby shortboard basically.
ok now i need to go daydream about hot summer days and really fun chest to shoulder high waves with the cooler of beer on the beach waiting for me when i get done with a 3 hour session, cant wait!
