i built a shanty surf shack on top of 3rd house from the left, the neighbors couldn't complain (squatters rights and all) it has a motorized zip line tied to an anchor near the line up... honestly!

hahaha! u KILL me soutie:) but yeah Carpe, it's pretty remote, wildrenessy, there was a contest hosted by a pro body boarder for morey last week(surf/BB), Rickey Miller...I heard the Hoobgoods were there, Curren ect...I think the waves sucked, but I've gone there at times when it's crowded and tents every where, and crowds just aren't my thing anymore, so I'll just keep driving down to the light house, or Frisco...but aren't the locals great! They hate us Va. Beach boys though:( Their women love us! Only thing to do on that Island is surf if ur from there, my girls uncle lives in Hatteras Village and my parents had a time share in KDHhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8LS0rakLSw..Noah Snyder and Jesse Hines has some really good videos on u-tube of this place on fire!

That's awesome Dangalow. Actually, the reason that I went here was because of researching. Surfline's spot check on OBX pretty much sealed the deal. I was hoping for "death pits" too! I was super stoked that it was barreling at all though! I got a few more, hold out and let me see if I can get one up that you like better. I believe you about the 14 second hold downs. I've seen videos of this spot mental. Looks like that if you can handle big surf, you can score OBX pretty empty huh? Everyone was so nice at the spot too. It was a wonderful experience for me!

Not to start an "east coast" debate....but check the credentials in mags ect...I've been to Florida to NY...nothing beats the OBX! BTW Almost died at this very spot....14 sec hold downs...all u can do is count and hope u surface! LOVE IT CARPE!
