Outer Banks: Hurricane Irene, After - 8.28.11
Hurricane Irene has come and gone. And she left quite a path of destruction in her wake. There was a lot of hype leading up to Ms. Irene's arrival. A potential Category 3 or 4 storm eventually landed on the OBX as a Cat 1. We were all very happy to see Irene's intensity diminish as she drew close to shore, but the realism of a major storm was always in the back of our minds. Unfortunately, even that realism did not prepare us for the destruction that was about to arrive. Last Friday (Irene arrived late that night), I took a trip to Jennette's Pier in Nags Head to get a pre-Irene beach report. It was a nice day, but the conditions were worsening, and it was clear some funky weather was on the way. So, I asked a professional OBX photographer to tag along to capture some of Outer Banks: Hurricane Irene, "Before." Luckily, Whitney of Whitney Norko Photography agreed to come, and we got some amazing before pictures. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKkMejtAHes&feature=player_embedded] Our plan was do to a "before" and "after" shoot of the same OBX landmarks. In a typical Outer Banks hurricane a before and after route along the "Beach Road" would make sense. But Hurricane Irene was not the typical OBX hurricane. This beast decided to attack the Sound instead of the ocean. Around midnight on Friday the winds and rain began to pick up, and it was clear Ms. Irene had arrived. The winds and rain remained high throughout the night, but not overwhelmingly so. Around lunch time, my family and I decided to take a trip to the beach to see how things were, and to be honest, they were not terrible. The wind was whipping, and the sand felt like it was piercing my skin, but the beach and "Beach Road" were not seeing too much damage...some siding and shingles coming off homes, but not much significant damage. Here's a link to my UStream video of the beach...not much to see, but you can get the effect of the wind. After the trip, we adjourned home to take in the sites and sounds of the afternoon hurricane on the Sound. And the sites and sounds were eerily quiet. Foreshadowing of what was to come? We took a walk out to the Sound, and it was amazingly empty! When Hurricane Irene began, here winds were blowing hard out of the East, and as a result, she blew almost ALL of the water out of the Sound. We walked 200 - 300 yards past the normal water line and THERE WAS NO WATER! Here's a link to my UStream video on the Sound. Unreal is all I can say. Within a couple hours after I shot that video, everything changed for the worse. Fast! And with force! Once the eye moved passed, the winds switched to the west/northwest, and all of that Sound water that was pushed out came back, with a vengeance. Sound-side on the Outer Banks took a beating for about 6-8 hours before the water - and 4-6 foot waves - started to recede. As a result, there is extensive damage on the Sound-side. Here's my UStream video of some of the relentless water (storm surge) attacking the OBX...unfortunately, it cuts off, but you'll get the point. As a result of the Sound-side destruction from Hurricane Irene, our plans for a "before" and "after" photo shoot needed to be adjusted. Luckily, Whitney Norko Photography agreed to tag along again, and we were able to capture a lot of the OBX damage and devastation first hand. I'll warn you upfront, it's ugly...

Outer Banks: 2011 World Championships of Surf Kayaking Highlights - Jennette's Pier, Nags Head NC
September went out, and October arrived, with a bang on the Outer Banks. Actually, it was more of a splash...a big splash; a worldwide splash. Fall on the Outer Banks is awesome. Empty beaches, warm weather, warm water, and fantastic surf. The perfect time to bring a huge surf kayaking contest to the OBX! For 10 days, from September 29th - October 9th, the 2011 World Championships of Surf Kayaking were held on the Outer Banks, specifically at Jennette's Pier in Nags Head, NC. This is a huge contest. It is held every two years, and the last event was in Brazil; we are very happy that it found its way to the Outer Banks. 10 days worth of events, contestants from all over the world, a wide variety of event categories, and the Outer Banks provided some perfect conditions. The weather and waves varied a bit over the 10 day period, but there was plenty of sun, a lot of great waves, and some amazing kayaking. I was able to make it to the event five of the ten days. It was great to see so much excitement and energy on the beach...and in the water. I couldn't get there everyday, but I made sure to get there when all of the fickle surf ingredients lined up to throw some great waves our way. And there were plenty of gorgeous waves to go around. I'll let the official website of the event (http://www.worldchampionshipsofsurfkayaking.com/) offer the full recaps, including opening and closing ceremonies and list of winners, but I do want to share some of great surf kayaking highlights...and amazing OBX waves. Sit back, kick up your feet, enjoy the scenery; the waves and kayaking are mesmerizing...and don't forget to turn up the speakers, I think you'll enjoy the jam from Foster the People - "Pumped Up Kicks." Hope to see y'all kayakers back on the OBX soon!...thanks for the show.

Outer Banks Treasures: OBX Crabbing & Billy's Seafood
Everyone loves a free dinner, right? Ok, it's not entirely free, you may have to spend a couple bucks for chicken necks and a string, but it's tough to find an easier catch than blue crabs on the Outer Banks. For our latest installment the Outer Banks Treasures video series, we're going to focus on OBX crabbing. But really, it's a 2 for 1 deal because we'll also focus on Billy's Seafood in Kill Devil Hills. Billy's Seafood is definitely deserving of it's own Outer Banks Treasures focus, but it works so closely with OBX crabbing and the secret spot I'm going to point out that I decided to give a little bonus with this treasure. Blue crabs are an OBX favorite. You can have them prepared for you at most local OBX restaurants, you can purchase them at a local OBX seafood shop and prepare them yourself, or you can head over to the Sound, enjoy a fun outdoor activity, and catch your dinner yourself...I prefer the latter! The Outer Banks Sound is full of blue crabs. The trick is knowing where to catch them. There are a wide variety of great spots, but I'll focus on one secret spot that is off the beaten path that has proven successful track record. I'll start with a point of reference that is easy to find, the gate at the Wright Brother's museum on Rt. 158 (i.e. the "highway" in OBX lingo). Head south from the gate at the Wright Brothers museum, and take a right at the first set of lights (Dairy Queen on your left, Kangaroo gas station on your right) onto Colington Rd. Colington Rd. is a neat road that winds through the west side of Kill Devil Hills...definitely off the beaten path for most vacationers. The secret spot is about two miles down this winding road. I'll point out a few landmarks on the way so you know you are on the right track. Soon after you turn onto Colington Rd., you will pass the backside of the Wright Brothers monument on your right. A short distance after that, you'll pass the Outer Banks airport on your right. As you head down Colington Rd., you will pass over two bridges. At the bottom of the first bridge is the legendary Billy's Seafood. Definitely worth a quick pit stop. Billy's is a fantastic local seafood shop. Local fishermen pull their boats directly up to the store at a dock in the back of the store to unload their fresh catch....doesn't get much more fresh than that! In addition to fresh local seafood, Billy's is also a great spot to get any crabbing materials you may need...string, hooks, chicken, nets, blue fish...they have you covered. After hitting up Billy, take a left out of the parking lot to continue down Colington Rd. After about another mile or so, you'll approach the second bridge on this journey. As you approach the bridge, notice the sandy area to the right of the bridge. This is the secret spot! As you go over the bridge, you'll notice a parking area on the right side at the base of the bridge. As a final landmark, this parking area is directly across the street from the Colington Volunteer Fire Station (108 School St., Kill Devil Hills). Park in the parking area, and walk up the small path to the super crab spot. Set up shop with some chairs and a cooler, and drop your chicken line into the water. Almost guaranteed catches. If you have any questions, please let us know...we love to share our local tips. Happy crabbing! Seaside Vacations OuterBanksVacations.com 4820 N.

Spotlight on the OBX: Manteo
Just to the West of the Outer Banks (but really still part of the OBX), is a tiny little town called Manteo that may remind you of Mayberry...in fact, Andy Griffith lives there! It is a definite hidden treasure, so we figured we swing the "Spotlight" over yonder to give you a quick tour. The Town of Manteo wraps around Shallowbag Bay on the eastern side of Roanoke Island, part of North Carolina's Outer Banks. Named the seat of government for Dare County in 1870, this waterfront community incorporated in 1899. It is home to the NC Aquarium, The Lost Colony outdoor drama, the Elizabethan Gardens, Roanoke Island Festival park, and a super cool waterfront that has shops, restaurants, and some amazing art galleries. During the Spring and Summer, Manteo hosts an outdoor event each first Friday of the month, cleverly called "First Friday," that offers some outdoor entertainment, food, music, and art. Manteo is a definite must-do for your next OBX vacation. But to get back to that whole Mayberry comparison, here's what RoanokeIsland.net has to say... The Roanoke Island town of Manteo is often compared to Mayberry because it holds a similar small-town character — and characters — and all the charm, hospitality and friendliness that come with that designation. Since this town bears so much resemblance to fictional Mayberry, is it a coincidence that Andy Griffith has lived here off and on since the 1940s? Most likely not, since Griffith himself once said, "If Mayberry is anywhere, it is Manteo." Manteo is the lively Dare County seat and an up-and-coming shopping/dining/cultural center that throws out the welcome mat for visitors. Now I'll zip it so you can enjoy the tour...

Outer Banks Treasures: Oregon Inlet
Ever actually watched a boat unload its catch of the day? It is actually pretty neat to see what everyone is talking about when they say how great Outer Banks fishing is. We went out to Oregon Inlet Fishing Center to include it as an Outer Banks Treasure and was lucky enough to get them unloading an awesome catch of dolphin and tuna. Since we were in the fishing spirit we decided to try our luck fishing at Bonner Bridge and caught a 10lb citation sheepshead!

Outer Banks Beach, Surf & Fishing Report: 3.29.12 - Loving Spring!
Good morning. Here's the Outer Banks, Beach, Surf & Fishing report for Thursday, March 29, 2012. This video was shot at the Kitty Hawk Bath House at 9:00 AM. Beautiful spring day. Warm sun, blue skies, light northwest breeze, and temps at 70. More of the same heading into the weekend. Yesterday's great surf has faded. The ocean is flat today. Not much surf over the next couple days, but we could have clean waist to cheat waves on Sunday afternoon. Winds pick up out of the northeast on Saturday night and switch offshore late Sunday morning. Could be a good chance of a good surf session and great weather. OBX fishing is starting to pick up. Water is warming and spring fish are on the way. They are still slaying tuna offshore. If you are thinking about an OBX getaway, please give us a look at www.OuterBanksVacations.com.

Motorcycle Cannonball Run on the Outer Banks
It's not 1981, and there were no Burt Reynold's mustache sightings this morning. The 2010 version of the Cannonball Run is a cross-country motorcycle race starting on the East Coast (Outer Banks) and culminating 3,300 miles later on the West Coast (Santa Monica, CA), and although the race may be modern, the motorcycles are anything but contemporary. The race launches a pack of riders on vintage motorcycles on an historic ride across the U.S. Participants are required to ride classic pre-1916 motorcycles such as Pope, Sears, Flying Merkel, Excelsior, Henderson, Indian, Triumph, and the Harley-Davidson's Silent Grey Fellows. About 50 vintage motorcycles pre-dating 1916 headed out for the coast-to-coast Cannonball Run from the Wright Brothers National Memorial on Friday September 10, 2010. Kill Devil Hills Mayor Ray Sturza waved the green flag as hundreds of onlookers cheered the riders departing for the run's first leg. The run will be in 16 stages totaling more than 3,000 miles. Each leg ranges between about 200 and 300 miles, starting on the OBX and ending in Santa Monica, California on September 26.

Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report - 4.15.11 - Soundside
Good morning. Here's the Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing report for Friday, April 15, 2011. This video was shot at 9:00 AM at my favorite secret spot on the Sound. I'm luckly enough to hang out with my rugrat, Finn, today, and we won't get out to the beach until this afternoon, so I figured I'd do a report from the Sound this morning. It's been a great spring week with sun and warm temps in the 60's to low 70's, and this great weather continues today, through the weekend, and into next week. It's beautiful today with sun and no clouds, mid 60's, and a 10 mph wind out of the north. The 10 day forecast looks great with a few chances of thunderstorms, but mostly sun and warm temps. The surf is building through tomorrow, and it should reach the shoulder high range. The wind won't match up until Sunday, but the swell should still be in the chest high range, and the wind looks like it will be ideal for clean surf all day Sunday and into Monday morning. The swell will fade to waist high on Monday. Looks like a good OBX weekend for weather and surf. The OBX fishing is going strong. The water temps have warmed to 55 degress, and the fish are starting to show up. Blow toads are being hauled in at the Avalon Pier, and they are usually the first fish of the spring followed closely by sea mullet. There are also blue fish in the area, and some catches in the Sound of puppy drum and rock fish. Offshore fishing is still strong with blue fin, yellow fin, and black fin tuna and mahi-mahi. Spring is here...and summer is close behind. Great time to be on the Outer Banks. Hope to see you soon. Have fun!

Outer Banks Summer Blue Fish Blitz - 6.30.11
Yesterday was a pretty classic OBX day. Dare I say that it was the best day of the year so far?! Perfect OBX conditions. Bright sun, temps in the 80′s, light onshore wind blowing a cool breeze with a fresh salt air smell, the water was an amazing aqua green-blue, crystal clear, and 75 degrees! Doesn't get much better than that. The great day carried over to a great evening on the beach too. We had a fun company picnic planned for the beach after work, and as I set up the food, and popped the first adult beverage, I saw the distinct vision of a classic fish blitz starting. The water close to shore was "popping" with blue fish, and the shore fishing crew was hustling with their poles towards the water line. The summer blue fish blitz was on! The fish were biting for almost two hours. The school of blues moved up and down the beach, and fish were being caught with almost every cast. Amazing site to see, and some great entertainment for our picnic. Here's a quick video of the action... Seaside Vacations OuterBanksVacations.com 4820 N.

Good reports from the piers and the surf: blues, speckled trout, gray trout, croaker, flounder, puffers, sea mullet, shad. Offshore = yellowfin, blackfin, mahi, wahoo.

Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report - 6.27.11 - OBX Summer in Full Swing!
Good morning. Here's the Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Monday, June 27, 2011. This video was shot at the Sutton St. beach access in Kill Devil Hills at 8:30 AM. Happy last week of June! Amazing. I can't believe how fast time is rolling this year. Already half way through the year, and the 4th of July is next week. The OBX summer is officially in full swing. Great weather ahead this week. 80 degree temps, bright sun, and a light offshore wind out of the southwest all week. Unfortunately, not much surf to report this week, but the light offshore wind is cleaning up the little swell we have. The waves are only in the knee high range today, but if you can find the right spot, there is a very clean longboard wave coming through. It should be this way pretty much all week. The swell may jump to waist high for a short time on Wednesday. Should be a pretty clean wave in the longboard range all week. OBX fishing is going full steam. Everything is active. Offshore is seeing dolphin, tuna, and a few bill fish mixed in. The piers, bridges, Sound, and surf are all very consistent with a wide variety of fish - blue fish, croaker, spot, speckled trout, flounder, Spanish mackerel, cobia. Hope to see you soon. Have fun!

Outer Banks Fishing - Trout are Biting
Fall on the Outer Banks is pretty ideal. In addition to beautiful weather, warm water, and wide open beaches, OBX fishing is at its peak in the fall. As the natural elements adjust, and the water temps begin to drop, fish start running...blues, spot, mullet, and one of the fall's best OBX fish, trout. This video was shot at dusk on Monday, October 18, 2010 in Kitty Hawk. North and south of the Kitty Hawk Pier. A bunch of surfcasters and pier fishermen enjoying the evening bite.

Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report: 1.31.12 - Gorgeous Winter Weather
Good morning. Here's your Outer Banks, Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Tuesday, January 31, 2012. This video was shot at the Kitty Hawk Bath House at 9 AM. Happy last day of January. Time flies. I din't want to jinx us, but we have had amazing winter weather so far. The next few days will be bright sun, blue skies, southwest breeze, and temps in the 60's. Hard to beat that winter weather. Unfortunately, the ocean is flat. No OBX surf for the next few days. The swell will pick up towards the end of the week, the wind will switch to the north at the same time, so clean surf is unlikely this week. OBX fishing is slow. Dog fish and skate at Jennette's Pier, but no stripers. The good news is there is good action offshore with tuna. Boats out of Oregon Inlet are giving consistent reports of hooking up with blue and yellow fun tuna. Hope to see you soon. Have fun!

Outer Banks Treasures: Chilli Peppers Coastal Grill
Watch for a tour of one of the best restaurants here on the Outer Banks- Chilli Peppers Coastal Grill. We had the chance to talk to Jim Douglas, owner of Chilli Peppers and he gave us the scoop on all the great things the restaurant has to offer. The food is delicious for every meal, including Saturday and Sunday brunch! They also have great food and drink specials and hosts some great events throughout the summer. If you are in the OBX area make sure you stop by CP's and enjoy some great fresh seafood, salads, sandwiches and just about anything you are in the mood for. If you just want to hang out they also have a walk-up window for drinks and cornhole out in the back!

Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report - 4.7.11 - Perfect Spring Day
Good morning. Here's the Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Thursday, April 7, 2011. This video was shot at the Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills at 9:00 AM. It's great to be back on the Outer Banks, and thanks to Brittany for doing a great job filling in for me with the reports while I was gone. I was in Hilton Head, SC for a vacation rental conference, and I can say Hilton Head is a nice beach, but it is no Outer Banks! Perfect spring day today. Bright sun, blue skies, and temps around 70 degrees. This weather should stick with us for through the weekend with temps in the mid 60's and sun. We have a nice offshore wind heading out of the southwest at about 10 mph. Perfect wind to clean up the surf, but unfortunately, there's only a trace swell coming through today...about ankle high. The good news is that the swell should build over the next couple days, and it looks like the wind will match up late Saturday and early Sunday for some clean chest high surf. It looks like Sunday morning may be the best bet, but I'll keep an eye on it. OBX fishing is going strong and picking up steam. It's been a bit slow for the past couple days, but the variety of reports is increasing. We are still getting reports of blue fin tuna catches offshore, with some yellow fin mixed in as well. Puppy drum catches have been reported in the Sound, a flounder catch at the Little Bridge heading to Manteo, a rock caught in the Sound, and now that the piers are open again, we got a report of a croaker and a sea mullet caught at Avalon Pier. Nothing consistent and only one fish at a time, but it is a sign of what's to come. As the water continues to warm, the fishing will continue to increase. Enjoy!

Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report - 6.29.11 - Where did June go?!
Good morning . Here's the Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Wednesday, June 29, 2011. This video was shot at the Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills at 9:00 AM. June 29?! Already? Where did June go. Summer is definitely here. We have a grey start to the day with some overcast skies, but the sun is fighting its way through. It should end up being a mostly sunny day with some scattered thunder showers...and the plants could use it! Overall, it should be a nice beach day with temps in the 80's and light offshore wind out of the west. The offshore wind is cleaning up the surf, but there's not much there to clean. Knee high waves are coming in this morning...maybe an occasional waist high set, and the small surf is very clean from the west wind. Definitely a fun longboard wave at the right spots. OBX fishing is going great. Offshore is seeing dolphin, tuna, and a few bill fish mixed in. The piers, bridges, Sound, and surf are all very consistent with a wide variety of fish. It depends on the spot and the conditions for the day, but the fish range from blue fish, Spanish mackeral, flounder, to spot, speckled trout, cobia, croaker. Hope to see you soon. Have fun!

Hurricane Bertha made a turn towards the north and left the Outer Banks with nothing more than some excellent waves. This video was recorded at a public beach access in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina at around milepost 8. There must have been 30 to 40 surfers just within eyesight. Excellent morning for surfing on the Outer Banks! http://www.outerbanksvacations.com/

Seaside Vacations' Outer Banks Beach Party
The fall is arguably the best time of year on the Outer Banks. Water is still warm, the weather is mild, the summer crowds are gone, the fishing and surf are at their peak...and the list goes on. Now that fall has officially arrived, we figured we'd use it as a good reason to get out and enjoy some time on the beach with fellow co-workers. Burger, dogs, some cornhole, a beautiful day, and great company. Can't ask for much more than that. Thanks to everyone in attendance.
