Forecast for outer banks today was waist high. I had to go down anyway to pick up a board so I figured I'd stop off and check it on the way down after hearing a swell interval on my NOAA radio of 13 seconds offshore. I made a good choice. A real good choice. The only two people in the lineup were both carpenters working on a condo on the beach and decided to ditch the hammer and nails.
I would like to thank all the forecast pages for missing this swell today. Just me and a buddy of mine had miles of open water with pumping head high sets all day!
Kooks (not talking about the forecasters) missed this one!
Totally agree. I am so happy that I was able to get out for a few hours after work. Definitely the best day in the last few weeks and the fact that it wasn't crowded (like Sunday) made it even better!
