When all the elements come together…

The month of April can sometimes be a giant question mark when it comes to weather and waves. This year, we scored several swell events that lasted for days with a zero crowd factor. Warmer weather and water definitely helped keep the locals happy. The real benefit to being here at the right time is paddling into empty 4-6′ A-frames and being able to look down the beach with hardly a soul out.

 

Here’s what Ian Cross had to say from April 26th surf:

Apparently the entire surfing population on the OBX headed south to greener pastures as things were pretty wonky surfwise in town this morning. As the tide dropped out, Anthony Arturo Leone and I traded barrels by ourselves at one one of the most notoriously crowded spots on the Banks, It was cloudy and a little grey but things got really good late morning and all of the sudden i was by myself getting a tube on every wave, took a break, fueled up and got back out there. The size had dropped off quite a bit, but the sun finally came out and the ocean was looking quite tropical today late afternoon on the Outer Banks.

Brett Barley:

“I couldn’t believe how much swell there was left today. Happy face!”
