    I asked santa for froth this year!

    Who's not even going to try wb this weekend? I want to hit up CB I think just due to the crowd. Don't really know any other sic spots? I wonder if Fig 8 will be happening.

    I doubt you will find very many helpful suggestions asking that question on this forum. My suggestion is to look at a map and pick a spot. BTW, if you don't think it will be crowded at CB this weekend, you might want to lay off the pipe.

    So, this thread is long, but now that you guys have the swell over there, was Bill over hyped? Every swell that hits either coast gets hyped up, and from the pics and cams I saw this morning over in NC, it looks really fun....

    But did they overhype it? It looks a foot or so over head and pretty clean... Its only lunch time. You guys let me know if you see any of these illusive DOH sets. Either way, have fun. Its a few solid days of swell... And long period windswell is basically ground swell... So, that swell should be acting very "california-esk"

    Today around eight I was out at Hamlet Ave., Carolina Beach and I saw a freak wave that was at least 9 foot! I was close to crapping my shorts cuz im only 4 foot 9 inches, and then later while I was paddling out and another freak wave came and broke right in front of me the whitewash explosion was a little taller than the wave and it looked unreal. I wanted to watch it go all the way to the beach but i was about to get pounded if I didnt do anything. By that time it was too late to get me and my board under it, so i got a huge breath and swam to the bottom and hooked my hands into the sand, but got tumbled anyway. That wave looked a little bigger than the first one.

    Swell

    Yeah man, we definitely got some solid surf today for sure. Most of the sets this am were overhead to well overhead in Wrightsville. Early on they were walling bombs but got better shape throughout the morning, into the day and evening. There were some sick ones coming through the closeouts though this morning if you found the right one-but that is just where I was. I had buddies all over the island that caught it good as well. The best surf we have had in Wrightsville for a while. Should have another day of fun surf tomorrow as well. I'm sure some good photo will show up in the next few days....Especialy from up North a bit...Dude from Surferphotos and SurfCarolinas photogs will probably have some up soon....

    Nice, glad to hear you all had a fun day. I can't wait to see some shots of CB and WB. I bet Atlantic Beach etc. had a good day too. Its good to hear that everyone was able to get out and give it a try today. I know a couple of days ago a lot of people were worried about that swell getting way outta control. Sometimes a couple feet over head is all you want.
