Brett Barley Claims "This Is As Good As The East Coast Gets"

The Outer Banks have been ostracized from the outside world for the better part of 2 months. Think the surfers mind?

After a heavy local storm turned Brett Barley's backyard into a Venice-like Canal, the winds kicked offshore and produced surf that the OBX local called, "As good as the east coast gets."

Like a typical east coaster, Brett calls the waves at their literal, ruler-based height of 8-to-12-to-maybe-15 feet. On a global spectrum, we're talking four-foot Hawaiian, six Australian, eight Californian.

As both a dwarf and east coast adherent, I'd call it quadruple overhead.

Semantics, right?

What no one can dispute is the quality of tubes that these ambiguously-sized waves provided, and how deep the local contingent stuff themselves inside.  

When's the last time your local looked like this?
