will be surfing south of crystal pier (oceanic restaurant) wednesday and thursday if you, chilly and whoever else would like to join. have to work friday and saturday til mid-afternoon but i was thinking of going down to fort fisher at the rockpile. what do you guys think, wanna go?
crystal pier is the only one on the south end of wrightsville, it sits next to the surf motel. to get to the rockpile you drive past the fort fisher welcome center down to the public pavillion (can't miss it), walk out to the beach and look left, it's up about a hundred yards or so. if ya'll get a chance to get out any of those times look for me, hurley "rasta" trunks and a beard riding a longboard.
Sounds good, I'll be out those days and I'll try those spots out. Im either going to be on a Green Walden 6'2" or a White Stretch 5'9". Left my Element "rasta" shorts at my buddies down on Topsail last week, so I'll probably be wearing white board shorts and a white ripcurl rash gaurd (sticky bumbs is the devil on my nipples).
not quite dawn, i have kids to get ready for school. more like 9. the more i look at it the more it seems that saturday and sunday are gonna be the REALLY good days to go, but i'm still gonna try it out tomorrow and thusday. will probably still try out the rockpile friday and saturday but sunday is deffinately looking like a south end of WB day.
Didn't get off work until late, but I did go out this evening long enough to have a new-found appreciation for hurricane swell: paddled out after work this evening (with great effort I might add). Caught one wave- a chest to shoulder high right. Fastest drop I've ever taken; I didn't know my fat-boy funboard could move that fast! Then it dumped, and I experienced the spin cycle as I became an underwater spectator to whatever else that wave did above me. I finally re-emerged to the surface, only to inhale one quick gasp of sweet oxygen before plunging below to avoid the next pounding surge of Atlantic fury.
After a terrible day at work, what an awesome way to end the start of the work week!
Anywyas, I have a question...wilmington weather BLOWS, so do you guys put the tops back on your jeeps everyday y'all take them off to avoid getting rained in at night or by the random rain cloud? Or what? I love taking the top off my jeep, but it seems like everytime I do it rains later that day or over night...even though I check the weather and it says sunny days
Guys i might have to miss this week and give it a shot next saturday, just found out dad is taking me down to myrtle beach to martins pga tour shop to buy some new irons well give it a shot next week and hopefully make a regular thing, just stay tuned on this thread
Haven't heard anything more about that wheeling spot that bmbillups mentioned near Sentry Oaks, but seems to me like there's a lot of interest for this weekend, if that doesn't work out does anyone want to get together, maybe on the North End at CB??
