Im from va beach but have a house in kill devil hills and never actually make it down as far as frisco... I have heard about the cove and the point alot but never have made it down there... usually get around rodanthe and find a spot but it looks like its going to be blown out on the east facing beaches. OBX? corolla to hatteras is what I say... Been coming down here for 15 years so all you new jersey headz stop hatin'...
double it and subtract one (if you can find your slide rule). Iv been surfing the outer banks for about 13 years of it - so I DO know what I'm talking about.
Dude is right, historically, the "outer banks" stretches from the C Bonner bridge south, past ocracoke to portsmouth island. North of the inlet was considered the "north american mainland", even though it is separated by a bridge. The tourists wouldn't understand that sticker.
PS, i hope you enjoyed the drive from jersey to get sloppy side-shore storm chop. I saw this coming days ago, right here on SWELLINFO.COM.
technically, obx is va/nc line to ocracoke. but most people differentiate north of oregon inlet as obx and south of the bonner bridge as hatteras island (HI). south of ocracoke it's called "core banks".
this thread is amusing me to no end...i love that it's folks who don't even lie there debate what does or doesn't constitute the outer banks!
& just to throw fuel on the fire, i've found that most of the people in duck, corolla, southern shores, etc...are from northern nj or pa. personally, i prefer to be a bit more south than that. i keep a house in buxton near the old coastie base.
Its to bad like nobody on here knows what the cove is... I tried to spoon feed it to them... They thought I was talking about oregon inlet....
I do. And it was my FIRST trip ever down there. Shows how far you'll get if you don't act like a kook and be cool to the locals. I even accidentally wandered through a bird protection area (yikes!!!!!) and still got hooked up. Or maybe that got me more street credit hahaha. If the guy who clued me in is on here, thanks by the way. That park ranger jeep passed me like 2 more times, and I was just waiting to be cuffed for being an idiot! I kinda wish the Amsterdam flag guy was there so I could see him through a hissyfit for all the bird poop I disturbed along the way.
Anyhow, back to the original topic...who the heck cares?! The fact that you guys are arguing over this is pretty hilarious.
