Summer on the West Coast usually means warm water, but no swell. So we weren't surprised when the Pacific was a dud from June to September. Some of the guys from Superbrand decided to hit the road in search of something, anything, and wound up on the East Coast after the onslaught of hurricanes that lined up across the Atlantic.
The crew, including longtime Superbrand rider Brett Barley promptly packed his boards and booked their flights to Norfolk, Virgina, where they then made the hour and half drive south to Jesse Hines house in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Jesse confirmed the next day would be cranking, with little wind and perfect conditions.
They woke up well before the sun came up and caravanned further south to the very eastern edge of the Outer Banks. After another hour of driving they pulled off to the side of the road in Buxton and walked over the sea oats covered dunes.
Their jaws collectively hit the sand as they saw what looked like a shorter version of Skeleton Bay lefts rifling up and down the beach.
One hell of a treat for the wave-deprived. Catch Barley, Hines, Stevie Pittman, Zack Beaudoin, Justin Cote, and Fisher Heverly charging endless barrels.
