    Anybody had any luck in Oak Island? I've never seen it break on the outside so can't if there are decent bars.

    It'll be breaking on this upcoming clean-up swell, but how good? Nobody knows. That's part of the fun. Do you drive down tomorrow during the deluge to try and snag a few? or stay at home and play it safe? I won't know that answer til tomorrow.

    Is that the same Oak Island the Ark of the Covenant is buried? If so, that a very small window for any kind of swell to get thru. But if Buckroe Beach in Hampton Va can get chest high tubes, anything is possible.

    take a SUP...you don't need google maps to know when Oak Island breaks...just some common sense.

    sucks that the south facing beaches are said to be "closed"...it's real clean and fun apparently on Holden right now

    With a nice hurricane about 200 miles due south and a N wind Oak Island will produce incredibly long, fun lines. Other than that weak and gutless for the most part.

    Thanks! I'm loading up the bus with a crew, some snacks and supplies, and will be there before you can say Jim Cantori.

    Time to break out the Lazy Boy SUP with the stripper pole as a decoy, will bring drones to record the carnage
