Photo Gallery – “September 30 Nor’ Easter Swell” (Part 3)
Here we are, 4 days later from some of the best surf we’ve had all year (Wednesday, Sept. 30th, 2015). Hurricane Joaquin has officially taken over and closed down Kitty Hawk beach road earlier today at the last high tide. Other parts of the Outer Banks are feeling it too but mostly on the oceanside as waves and tides have been chipping away at the dunes. Winds have been howling steady in the 35-45+mph range all day and rain bands have officially moved in. Lucky for most, this storm took the European model and headed out to sea…but it wasn’t so lucky for Bermuda. They dodged the eye of the storm but still got hammered with 100+mph winds and rain.
As for us, we had one day between the Nor’easter and Hurricane Joaquin to enjoy the ocean in more manageable conditions. Hopefully we’ll see it clean up soon before this next swell fades but for now, it’s not looking like that will happen for the next couple of days. In the meantime, check out this next batch of photos from last Wednesday. Photos: Nultemeier.
