Surfers enjoy post-storm swells


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Surfers and beachgoers found their way back to the beach Saturday morning as the sun found its way back to the skies.

Dozens of surfers were taking advantage of the big waves following Friday’s storm. Others could be found walking along the beach and enjoying the sunshine throughout the morning. Surfer Michael Miller said he and his son have been waiting for the good surf.

“So everybody wakes up first thing in the morning hoping for that epic swell. You know we got a piece of it, but not quite as big as I think most of the guys out here were hoping for,” Miller said.

While surfers are enjoying the big swells, officials are still warning the public about the dangers of rip currents this holiday weekend.
