Corolla still has a cold wind coming out of the north that is cutting across the sections. Wave height is chest high but the faces only stay open for 2 seconds. AM wind speed is about 13 mph, combined with a 37 degrees air temp, Corolla is dealing with a wind chill in the high 20’s. The locals are keeping their fingers crossed for warmer weather this weekend. NOTE: YES, WE RENT WETSUITS. GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP
Corolla is on the tail of a winter storm that moved across NC last night. We did have 45 minutes of sleet last night. The sun came of this AM. Corolla’s choppy surf is well overhead and breaking on the outside. Water and air temps are matching each other at 43-44 degrees Fahrenheit due to a 22 mph wind coming out of the North. We just need for the wind to calm down. NOTE: NEW INVENTORY IS ROLLING IN. WE ARE GETTING READY FOR SPRING BREAK. GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP

An anti-climatic ending to a week of dramatic surf. Wave height has dropped down to about thigh high. The wind is out of the Southeast, at 7 mph and Corolla has semi-choppy conditions. The original forecast was for the surf to build tomorrow. Push that forecast till Monday. The “weather” forecast for today was warmer air temps…..Not happening!

Today is a great day to head out on the surf. Corolla’s high tide is at 1:00 PM. The wind is off-shore blowing at 11 mph & lifting over the dunes. We currently have waist plus barrels peel primarily to the right. NOTICE: A lot of sand has been pulled out from the dune line into the ocean. Obstacles that were previously covered w/sand up have now starting to appear on the shore. The Corolla crew will need to access the better breaks in Corolla. GARY, COROLLA SURF SHOP
