Ok, it’s been a miserable week on the Outer Banks. A surprise Nor’Easter formed off the coast on Tuesday, and it just did not want to move out to sea. – Kip Tabb

We’ve been drenched by torrential rains, howling winds and the high surf with a little bit of ocean overwash. A bit early in the season for all of that, but it looks like things are about to improve.

The sun is finally out!  There’s still nothing rideable in the surf, but the winds should be moderating and shifting to the northwest tomorrow. Waves are predicted to stay in the 4-6’ range so the surfing should be improving, .

Moderating winds does not mean no wind, and the prediction is for the wind speed to stay between 10-15mph through the weekend, so we should have some good conditions for windsports as well.

And as things calm down in a bit, there should be some good surf action for the fishermen—or head out to any one of the Outer Banks piers and see what’s running.

Here’s some fun stuff from Gary at Corolla Surf Shop we picked up while looking over surf reports.

“Thanks to Mike Dianna’s Grill Room for donating tickets to the Mustang Music Festival. Get your Corolla Clean Beach trash bag, fill it up and you could win tickets to the Festival.”

All for a good cause, or two—clean beach and Corolla Wild Horse Fund.
