Photo Gallery – “September 30 Nor’ Easter Swell” (Part 1)
One thing is for certain on the Outer Banks is that this place is never short of wind. Just ask the Wright Bros. We’ve had over a week of non-stop relentless NE winds that carved out it’s name in sand dunes all up and down this stretch of sandbar. As I’m typing, I’m also checking the next forecast for the system that will start kicking into full gear on Friday/Saturday. It’s never a dull moment if you love extreme weather.
This past Nor’ Easter finally checked out leaving us with a 4.9′ swell at 10 seconds and light offshore winds. After days of waiting, everyone was ready to charge and every sandbar in town seemed to be working with plenty of swell in the water. The pack was thick at the stand-out bar but for obvious reasons. Below is about 50 photos with many more coming soon so keep your eye out as we continue to publish more pics and cover the next incoming swell. Thank you September! Photos: Brent Nultemeier
