    Speaking of OBX: is corolla ever any good? offshore winds and swell today and as alwasys the surf report pictures look lousy. Does it get good there?

Anyhow it was friggin perfect with some really good surfers out. In the 20 minutes I watched not one person make it into and out of those perfect cavernous barrels. The only guy that came close was pinched right at the end when the whole thing imploded. These were all paddlers that probably wished they could have been flung into a few.
    making it out of it is an amazing feeling but id def take the tunnel vision and the impending doom and washing machine over knowing i did all of it on my own power and if you do make it out.. well.. if you know the feeling its enough to make you just fall off your board in giddiness. i feel like being pulled into it is like using a condom. its safer, but it just doesnt feel the same.

    obx was fun as a biatch yesterday. Glad that swell stuck around. For whoever asked, yeah corolla can get good but its always better in town or south of the inlet. Always

    I'm not sure what type of camera/lens the guy uses but the pics never seem to match the report. It's usually the exact opposite of the Buxton report that says something like "3-4+ semi choppy - Nothing Special" after weeks of lake Atlantic conditions.

    It's almost as if EmassSpicoli does the corolla report and NJShredmachine does the buxton one.

    I think a lot of people are judging the waves in Rodanthe by the looks of the cam and have not actually been there to walk a mile north/south just to drift into the best break for one maybe 2 rides before your a mile the other way. I think tow in's/step offs are just as gay as the next surfer but I do think that If I had a ski I would use it for positioning myself on the peak of the wave. that way you can save some energy for actually paddling into a wave instead of using all your strength to get to where you need to be.
