Yea holden beach was off the hook, but there were other places close by too. Ocean Isle pier was firing at 6-10 foot occasional bigger. Only the strongest surfers could get out...100 people sittin on the beach watching. Sets were breaking 50 yards PAST the pier between 3 and 5 pm. For a second I thought I was in Costa Rica. Thank you Earl for one of the best swells in the last 10 years.
