Buxton Lighthouse seemed to be the place to be during the latest swell event that went down on February 17, 2013. Outer Banks lensman Jon Carter was there along with some of the area’s finest surfers to fight the freezing temperatures and score some great waves. Surfers include: Brett Barley, Jesse Hines, Joey Crum, Michael Foard and Zach Knapp. All photos from Jon Carter Photographry
