Weekend NE and Surf on the Southside

This past weekend saw a nice swell hit the southside from Frisco, westward.  Billy Mitchell, Izzy’s (now named “Sandy Bay?”) were the focused spots.  Hatteras Inlet was scoped, but there were no outside bars found throughout the spit.  Thus, Rmp 49, Frisco Bathouse, and Izzy’s had the best lineup.

Below is a shot from Saturday at Rmp 49 captured on my wife’s IPhone.  Kudos to her, her sister, and our little dudes for weathering the stinging sand while I was out catching a few waves.  With 25+mph gusts on the beach, not the most pleasant conditions for enjoying time on the sand.

Here is interesting shot from the very end of Hatteras Inlet spit where basically the sand road “ends.”

Southside Wrap Plus Christobal Swell Equals BIG!

Wow, the south side has been firing over the past few days courtesy of the NE wind wrap coupled with incoming SE swell from Hurricane Christobal!  If the AWT Hatteras Wave Jam was this week…. Hatteras would be right up there with conditions similar to San Carlos and/or Peru!

Keith sent in these photo galleries from the past few days.  Quite impressive conditions and classic big wave Hatteras!
