Offshore shallow continental shelf absorbs wave energy from those waves that have size. Up to 94% of the wave energy from a good 10-12 sec period SSE swell ( the one that is always overhead+ on Hatteras Island)
we can thank the obx for that one. they always block the swell from the south and the eastern shore blocks the swell from the north. basically, were in of the worst spots on the east coast. due to the lack of significant swell, our sandbars are also sh1t most of the time
Yeah we dealt with record numbers of a$$holes from the north this summer. VB or wherever they claim to rip. I saw many insta-crowds show up at some of our breaks and try to catch bombs right off the bat...only to be called out (or slapped) Don't show up down here paddle out with ya boys and fade the locals! Drop ins loudmouths and kooks can surf some random bar or start paying dues....frigg

they messed up the north end when they ran the storm drain pipes 1/2 mile out. the break at 79th st was sweet. it would break when a fish farted. use to have 3 line ups. now the beach is big and goes out to the outside break.
