Mid-morning Update: A little cleaner than earlier but still weak and soft due to the higher tide. Should build throughout the day but the wind forecast isn't looking that great. Still better than normal. To all those newer surfers please learn the surfing etiquette and please know your limits (see photo in Lunchtime Update yesterday). Red flag conditions the next several days with the approaching swell from Hurricane Bill. The site will be running a little slow with the traffic over the weekend.
Note: Welcome new UNCW students. Please make sure you click on the 2009 WB Surfing Regulations and Zones link below. We have worked hard to make surfing better here in WB. Please don't ruin it for all who have worked so hard so please take the time to educate yourself on the regulations here in WB. Most importantly, please wear your leash at all times or it could be a $100 fine or you could hurt someone with your board. Also to all who visit in the coming days of the swell from Bill. Respect each other, split the peak, and have fun.
