    You guys get that fear going when it is big and scary at OBX? I sure do, I think that is part of the allure! The power of the pitch at OBX! I was at KDH after Eart and could not make a section on a head high one so I turned out towards shore to miss the lip and the big white puff just pummled and worked me! I love it but it reminds me of the power and respect and yes the fear.

    Look at www.obxsurfinfo.com they had someone surfing Frisco with pics for Danielle with hard offshores I beileve. Big!!!

    thought i'd revive this thread for this latest swell. i like whitewater's advice. it might be amazing, but even if it's not it's not like it will be any better in vb. think i might make the drive just to check it out - anybody else headed down?

    At the least, you might want to make sure Hwy 12 is actually open. It looks pretty flooded at Mirlo Beach right now.

    Holden was nice (i surfed the inlet and it was epic), but the main reason it wasn't closing out at such a period was the direction of the swell...the little east in it kept it from closing out

    I guess it depends on the size but if its head high or bigger, 15 knot winds are probably the max you'd want to go out in. If the winds are any harder, it's usually real pitchy with a ton of closeouts.
