    Anyone have extra space to give me a ride back at the end of the trip? I've got a ride up....

    Hi. Final Update

    We are filled to capacity, and then some!!! All we need now is some surf! Thanks everyone

    Update: Eric is going to take the downstairs queen bed so that it might encourage someone to come and bring a friend to share the bunk room. There's a full bed on the bottom and twin on the top. Of course, if you share the room it would be half price at $138. So if there is a surfer out there who wants to come along and bring a friend, shoot me an email.

    Just got back today from OBX. Surfed Sunday-Wednesday. Tons of fun, and I was all by my lonesome in the water. Can't wait to surf with the group! Always more fun with friends.

  • Neil

      Waves in the water today at OBX. Chest high with bigger sets according to reports. Wind onshore today but supposed to lighten up tomorrow. Pro contest in Nags Head that can be seen on the Jeanette's Pier Web Cam. Should be a great weekend for any surfers headed there for the weekend! I know a couple people that will be there. Hahahah

    Hey, I watched the video from last year. Looks like ya'll had a blast! Man, I really wanna go on this trip. We'll see-We just booked a trip to Cali to see family, friends, show off our new bambina, and get some surf. It's a couple of weeks after the OBX trip. How about a pre OBX night of drinking beers and talking surf?? I KNOW I can swing that lol!

      Elliott, Congratulations for new baby !! will be great to surf with you again , hope you can make it !!

    Hi. It's Tuesday Aug 27th
    Just wanted to update everyone that there are 2 bedrooms still available. You might ask yourself, with 9 RSVP's, some on SUP site, how are there still beds available. Some people can only come for first or second half of trip and will splitting the time in one bedroom. A couple others are planning on staying just a few nights and are sleeping on air mattresses. If you have an interest in joining us, let me know and we can probably work out something. I think the more people the more fun. There might be some car-pooling opportunities too. Weather should be in low 80's and water is fairly comfortable. Last year, we got away with light neoprene tops and maybe a shorty on windy days. Some only wore rash guards. Email me at [masked]. We should also start thinking of a FL trip for Nov-March....house rental would be ideal.

  • Eric I.

    I won't be staying the whole week, so looking at going for the first part of the week with Emilio, but I am flexible if ride sharing works out better another way. Looking forward to it, have always wanted to go to OBX!

    August 15, 2013

    • Neil

      Woops. Can't hit the return button. Anyway, you're coming! Coooool! Most people are coming at the beginning, but that could change. Lots of interest. I have a bedroom that has bunk beds, with a full on the bottom and twin on top. It would be a good share bedroom. The bedroom with the 2 twins has been taken. Glad you're aboard. The trip is incredibly fun. At the end of the week you end up with new friends for life! Keep me informed of your sleeping preferences because deposits are coming in. Neil

      August 15, 2013

    • Eric I.

      Thanks Neil. I just sent you an email for your address. I'll take the bunk room in case one of my buddies can come along as well. Looking forward to meeting yall.

  • Dean G.

    I got your msgs Suzy and Neil. I'd really like to go but can't break away until Tuesday afternoon putting me in a bed or a on a floor Tues,Wed, Thurs, and Fri. Check out is Sat morn it looks like so how could I work that?

    August 13, 2013

    • Dean G.

      I'm going, I just can't go the entire Sat to Sat. Neil, is the person leaving Tuesday paying the full $275 or prorated? If they're paying full maybe I can get that person half the cost and split it. Half the time for both, half the cost.

      August 14, 2013

    • Dean G.

      We're good...and check really is in the mail Neil : )

    OBX Baby!!

  • John from C.

    Hi all, would love to give this a shot. The entire week is probably unrealistic for me. Gonna play it by ear - stay tuned.

    August 14, 2013

  • Eric I.

    Emilio, carol - I am trying to work it out. Keep me in the loop...thx

    August 13, 2013

  • Neil

    Hi Dean, first off, we are psyched that you might come. So lets figure out how to get you there. There is one person who plans on coming for the first part of trip, probably leaving Tues or Wed. So you might be able to score a bed. Second, I would be willing to haul your boards and wetsuits, gear if you decide you want to fly into Norfolk. Flying would give you an extra day of surfing. If you drive and arrived Tuesday afternoon, we would get you in the water Tues, Wed, Thursday, and Friday. We're talking all day surf sessions, so it would still be worth the trip!!! Please try to come, it is going to be a blast!

    August 13, 2013

  • EMILIO
