Wrightsville beach is the most closed out beach in the world...
Finding an open face is rediculous. Its deep right off the beach with NE winds taking out the bar. Rips and closeouts are usually the call with anything long period swell. It's either flat, sloppy or closed out...rant over. I'm moving to CB.
Combo swell was working great where I surfed this morning. Nice a frames peeling left and right, only saw a few closeouts all morning. Sometimes you just get skunked though. I agree you should move away from WB.
have the day off tomorrow and would just love to wake up to waves here in the 458. the possibility exists and my expectations are so low anymore that i'd be just thrilled with waist-high and clean...while the water is still warm and before DST kicks in on 11/2.
unless you have an exceptional sand bar setup working and at just the right tide (higher), aren't closeouts what long period groundswells usually do at beach breaks? Find a point, reef, maybe even a good jetty, but for most straight beach breaks, windswells are usually the call
