    Those aussie slabs look pretty knarley. I dont think I will ever say I wont paddle out. But def respect all of those knarley breaks and know that if I were to paddle I would be doing alot of breathing training...

    Don't forget, that Outer banks can get huge too, and that's practically in our backyards.
    I doubt you'll ever surf either of them, when they're going off. You grew up surfing summer swell which barely exceeds 4'. And you wanna go pound out 20' at chopes while the lip is about 20' as well... Get outta here. He's not talking about surf them when its a ****ty swell.

    I didn't say that any of the aforementioned spots had to be during a big swell

    Edit: Nevermind, I just now understood what you said

    But really, Outer Banks is a good training ground.

    i agree that the outer banks are a good training ground especially when it gets good and big with nice a frames coming in.

    You have more guts than I do. I was in Hawaii last year over Thanksgiving break and witnessed Pipe going off at 10-12 foot (Hawaiian) and was in awe. I couldn't imagine charging anything bigger/heavier than that or something with a lip half the size of the face like Chopes.

    I think there has only been one time in OBX that looked so gnarley that I was afraid to paddle out. It was at S-Turns once during some hurricane swell and it was ridiculous, easily double overhead and about as hollow as any world class break. I was humbled. Not trying to disrespect any East Coast wave with this thread, but lets face it, we ride sandbars that are constantly changing. I didn't want to discuss our super secret sandbar breaks on a public forum either. blah blah

    I'm not saying that i have the guts or the skill to rid any of those waves now... I just want to ride them eventually, I'm only 14, I still have a lot to learn.
