outer banks: “Nights in Rodanthe” House to be Moved and Restored? - 12/21/09 01:13 AM
“Nights in Rodanthe” House to be Moved and Restored?
The Island Free Press ran an article today announcing that Serendipity, the house from Nights in Rodanthe, is in the process of being purchased and moved.
Serendipity gained infamy from the appearance in Nights in Rodanthe, but it has gained increased notoriety due to its precarious position in the Outer Banks surf.  The home has sat vacant for quite a while due to its location in the surf, and the recent nor’easter that hovered over the OBX brought increased attention to the home and the need to rectify its unstable location poised … (0 comments)

Outer Banks Gaining Notoriety for Stand Up Paddle Boarding
The Outer Banks was recently featured in StandUp Paddle Magazine, a publication that focuses on Stand Up Paddle Boarding. 
All of the conditions that make the Outer Banks a classic surf destination, friendly locals, uncrowded breaks (most of the year), consistent surf in a variety of conditions, and potential for amazing waves under perfect conditions, also apply to Stand Up Paddle Boarding (aka SUP).
From a broad perspective, SUP is pretty much longboarding while holding a large paddle, but there's more than meets the eye.  SUP is a fantastic full body workout that … (2 comments)

The Outer Banks ranks high on most surf lists; Surfer even named Kill Devil Hills number six on its list of "Top Ten Surf Towns."
It offers world-class surf conditions; ideal conditions for beefy, fast waves, and shifting sandbars that create the strong potential for heaving, chocolate colored "barrels" (i.e. the hollow area inside the wave that is created when a select few waves crash) if you are lucky enough to be in the right spot under the right conditions.  A short continental shelf, winds out of every direction,  and 200 miles of curving coastline hanging into the Atlantic Ocean come … (0 comments)

Hurricane Bill Sends Great Waves to the Outer Banks
After a slow start the 2009 Hurricane Season, Hurricane Bill, the first named hurricane of the year, passed by the Outer Banks on Saturday and sent the OBX some major swell. 
Waves started to pickup Friday.
 

By Saturday the surf was mostly too messy and too large for much surfing, and definitely no swimming as the current was very strong and rip currents were prevalent.  Saturday started out nice, but fog set in early and the seas grew rough as the day wore on.
   

By Sunday, Bill was passed, … (1 comments)
