After a week of forcasting ridiculous surfing conditions for this weekend, the local cadre of surfers were out in force today looking for a peice of the action. A groundswell had been brewing for several days but the Northeast winds kept it unridable north of Hatteras until yesterday evening when the wind switched around out of the Southwest. I had a shoot up in the Corolla area for some of the local guys this morning, but as luck would have it as I drove North, the swell headed South. Making my way back down to the Nags Head peir this afternoon I found one of our local high school teachers, Joseph Tyson, taking advantage of the tail end of the swell in town.
Photo up top is from Nags Head, one of the bottom was Corolla. As you can see, this is the East Coast, and therefore lighting is much better for this sort of photography in the afternoon.
