    same path as Hurricane Fabian


    I hit double overhead plus during hurrican Fabian in 2003, which has did was cat 3 and same path as projected for Bill. Hatteras has the spot... it will hold and peel 10ft+... 100+yd rides all day long. Question is do i wanna get stuck south of Rodanthe when the road washes out?

    well, have fun guys. Wish I was back in oc md to hit the shoals or something.

    But for all the guys that sound worried down south, my advice is to think outside the box as far as where you choose to surf if the swell does get heavy. There are tons of little rivermouths and inlets all up and down the carolinas that have deeper water and probably never break on normal 3-4 foot days...

    Nobody usually paddles out to their local beach break when its 12 ft. You gotta look for things with some deeper water, possibly way further out. Outer sand bars collected off a river or something...

    But good luck. Grab your pintail minigun so you can have a ton of speed and an easy paddle..

    No such thing

    I hope this pans out. Any one ever surf the KOA park in Hatteras? That's where I am going to be paddling out from, unless it is cleaner elsewhere. Hook a brother up, I am back into surfing after 14 years in the Marines... I did surf on and off all over the place; but VA beach and OBX is my new home break. Where are the sweet spots? Any other gay rules about surfing VA beach I should be aware of?

    Rock and roll.

    Surfed the Ec since the early 90's . Some spots will hold clean breaks . Looks like north florida will be clean if the swell direction keeps it course . Central Florida looks like a direct hit for close outs sat . just my 411 , PADDLE OUT .

    nws is saying 4-7ft. i think triple overhead is a bit overstated.but, if that's the case, monday will probably be super fun head high+ light offshore. i'm hoping to get my arms a bit loose on friday night but i think it might be just outa control s wind blown storm surf

    If this pans out to be even head high, it'll make me the happiest man alive. I've been in Germany since July 24, and I'm coming back on Saturday. Trying not to get my hopes up too much, but yeah...

    I don't know, when i rode it that one time, it didn't really paddle any faster.

    Thanks, but I need a more substantial step-up than a 6'1.

    I just want some 1-3 ft over head and clean conditions. You wont have to waste all your energy getting out.

    OC NJ has been able to take some pretty big swells. It was ridable for Ernesto. I'll probably head down to the south end so I don't have to worry about getting slammed into rocks.
