I was dropped off thursday with my hiking gear and didn't walk off the island until tuesday. Just as i walked across the va line i found a abandon old house and set up camp there. Saturday night was pretty scary but sunday early morning i was standing up in barrels. I brought 2 camcorders and am making a documentary of it.
I surfed there on Friday. The National Seashore had posted on their website they were going to close the park at 7. Around 4 pm waves started lining up and peeling, not huge, but solid head high with push and no wind. At 4:30 rangers started blowing their sirens. I was one of the last out of the water around 4:45 and my last three rides were my 3 best waves of the sesh. I'll be there in the AM to check things out tomorrow. I wrote a long and courteous email to the Park Superintendant about the early closure... oddly enough, I haven't heard back from her.
