January was a banger for swell along Cape Hatteras, NC. We kicked off the New Year with a fun afternoon of lined up chest high tubes in the snow, then Winter Storm Grayson arrived providing some incredible (yet challenging) surf.
After that… things just kept rolling, days of surprising conditions providing pumping waves with no one around, and days enjoyed with a crew of good friends pumping through endless barrels. Day after day it kept going, and at the end of January we saw our last hoorah for the month.
But at the end of it I realised there was too much footage to cram into one-minute Instagram edits, or short YouTube video. So here’s 10 minutes of lefthand tubes spent at my homebreak. If you don’t enjoy watching barrel after barrel, then don’t hit play … but if you care to sit down to a feast of below sea-level grinders from both my perspective, and that of Jeffrey O’Neil (filming), ENJOY!
