Swell Event: February 27, 2013 – Part 1

First of all, I’d like to thank February for delivering the goods. I can’t remember a February this good in a while. We had a strong SE swell mixed into an already built NE swell. The Oregon Inlet buoy read 13.8 feet at 9 seconds around midnight and by the morning, the winds were offshore. There were waves pretty much up and down the entire mid-atlantic. VB was reporting chest to head+ and clean at first light and the Outer Banks collected a bit more size due to the predominant SE swell direction. The further South you went, the bigger (and hollower) it got. After traveling all day from KDH to Buxton, I ended up spending most of my time in Rodanthe. It was clean, well overhead, sunny and barreling with only a few people out. You gotta love surfing on the Outer Banks in the winter. Photographer: Brent Nultemeier
