Photo Gallery: “September 24 – The Day after Big Wednesday”

Hurricane Teddy has officially gone down in history as one of the biggest swells the Outer Banks has seen in the past decade. With 14'+ swell at a 17+ second period, it leveled sand dunes, washed out roads and threw some massive surf towards the entire Outer Banks. Wednesday, September 23 was the day it all came together with double overhead+ surf for those brave enough to paddle out... leaving most on dry land watching it all go down. The surf was pumping all day long and by the time it was sundown, the swell lost a fair bit of size. For most surfers, there was much anticipation for the "day after" which provided A+ head high surf. Below are some photos taken by Adrian Dillenseger and Mike Leech.
