Outer Banks Gold

There's no place like H O M E.

Travel is great, especially when the main focus of your escapades revolves around chasing perfect peelers, but there's always a feeling of pride, even when abroad, when home is firing. Surfers Shaun Devine, Todd Pace, Steve Owens, and John Streit managed to make the most of an epic swell that hit the East Coast of America a few weeks back, and they captured it perfectly in all its glory.

When my good friend and Jetty Ambassador John Streit started posting these ridiculous photos from a session in Duck, North Carolina, my head started spinning. Classic Outer Banks Gold.  I then got a message from another friend, Shaun Devine with some more insane eye candy captioned, "Me and the boys and not another soul in sight!" That's the beauty of this spot, the Duck Research Pier lies tucked away in a quiet fishing town on a chain of tiny islands off the coast of North Carolina. You can easily surf perfect A-frames completely solo. I used to wait tables across the street from this hidden gem. The brown water, thick slabs, and empty lineups scream everything I love about this quaint coastal community. As much as I miss it, I love getting to see my friends trading barrels and sharing stoke in one of my favorite places on Earth.
