Zachary get out of that sport asap unless you got a good chance of going pro. I dropped to much $$$ in that sport and surfing is way better.

magicalmrm... there is nothing factual whatsoever about your statement. Check out the pics from the recent contest in the OBX. There are indeed world class waves to be had here. In fact, its just about as good as almost any beach break in the country. It doesn't regularly get as big as say Blacks -but it does pick up lots of swell from different directions. Its as good as Sebastian which is widely considered one of the best beach breaks on the EC. I've surfed both so thats my opinion.

Get a clue british guy. The outer banks cranks out world class waves! It is no Hawaii but neither is any spot in England. 1/1000 is the size of your brain measured in millimeters.

kmart the pics have posted. The quality is pretty bad and some of the pics posted twice by accident. Yours was definitely the pic of the day. the pictures dont really do the swell justice as they were taken after the tide began backing out and the wind picked up.

Squirl-Thatd be great, that was a really fun day. The one pic you did post is actually of me so I figured there would have to be more. Alex- I was wondering cuz he actually owns a shop in Mancora and i was looking at the pictures you took.

Hey Kmart14, no I don't, I surf mostly Masonboro Island and Wrightsville Beach. But I always want to make it up to S-turns, just about every other picture out of S-turns is a barrel. By the way Mase on Monday was on fire. The sandbar is back again. this coming Monday should be a good day for Mase again.

Kmart, yes. The problem is that I am lazy and spend all my time commenting on photos instead of downloading them. The quality of the pics is pretty crappy but they give a good idea of what the swell was like and showcases most of locals. I will try to post them soon.

Squirl...Do you have any more pictures from Hunting Island during the Hanna/Ike swell?

No offense taken. American on American violence is a terrible thing. I take back my grow some nuts comment. Should we hug and sing cumbaya now?

I really wasn't that angry Squirl but having re-read my comment I can see how it came across as rather heated; my apologies. I agree that the outer banks hold some of the best breaks on the EC. The barrels really do dredge and your right about the sand-in-teeth, I've been pummeled here plenty of times. Go to www.surfline.com and check out the video from the recent OBX contest between Virginia Beach and Outer Banks teams -freakin ridiculous tubes galore.

westmonster, where is your since of humor? The rodent thing was just a low blow (but funny). Dont be so sensitive your as bad as british and irish. I am glad to hear that you are an east coaster. I too have tasted the sands of the outerbanks as a result of pulling in to unmakeable bomb barrels. By far the best wave on the east coast once you pick the sand out of your teeth.

In NC its most likely a low tide spot.

By the way Ed SOME of them putter out and reform, but hardly all. Come to NC on a day like this and you'll see what I mean.

Wait a minute, why are fools insulting me just cause I spoke the truth. I'm AN EAST COAST SURFER, and I've had my share of barrels in NC including here at S-turns. The outside bars pick up the big ones but they mush out and like I said they simply clean up. Its not a matter of having balls, I'd like to see how long it takes you to paddle out on a day like this rodent, and then I'd like to see you navigate the outsiders that come from nowhere and cause havoc.

hey k-mart14 , what's the best tide for this spot to put out the barrels?

alexfv's avatar

alexfv Oct 23, 2008 Rating: 10

westmonster, you're absolutely right. I think what's worse is that you never get to ride those bombs, and when they break outside. It kinda sucks a little because the waves loose a lot of power by the time they reach the break. That's still a sick wave though.

Those outside breaks just roll and roll and when they get up to where that guy is getting covered thats usually the bigger set and the place to be. But if it was on a reef then it would stand up the whole way through. I love me some EC.

Look out back! I freakin can't stand that crap about the east coast. When it gets real big and good, like this, the outer sand bars pick up some of the bombs and obliterate everyone in the lineup. Theres no safe place to be. Riding beach break like this is so much harder and more shifty than lots of reef breaks of similar size.
