Tuesday morning dawn patrol at Cape Hatteras Lighthouse featured some scrumptious waves. Perfect conditions prevailed 24 hours after the passing of the intense low from Sunday night. Winds were light WNW and the swell was nicely organized and clean. I met a few surfers who drove up for the day from Carolina Beach. Asking them if the waves were better here got me a definitive “yes.” Ironically, Sunday night during the storm I found a surfing movie filmed in Carolina Beach called “Perfect Summer”.
Albeit chilly in February, temperatures warmed up on Tuesday, making it a really nice beach day. The Winter wave machine is expected to blow another front through this coming Saturday, with more good surf in the forecast!
