I've been going to OBX for the last 10 yrs or so and even up to last year, it was never this bad. It didn't matter too much since the surf was crap the whole time I was there anyhow. But on some of the more decent days I had a little sandy for just myself in a nearby town. My newly found spot will surely be my go-to break whenever I'm there. Only surfer out for two days - right in the middle of town.
