Help “Preserve Future Access to S-Turns” (Deadline Jan. 20)
“Preserve Future Access to S-Turns,” is an effort from the Surfrider Foundation Outer Banks Chapter to ensure that surfers are able to continue enjoying what Surfer Magazine has claimed “one of the 100 best waves in the world”. S-Turns is located just North of Rodanthe on Hatteras Island. The S-Curves/S-Turns area has a deepwater trench offshore that causes the waves to have a bit more energy in comparison to neighboring beach breaks and is one of the most powerful waves on the East Coast. For many surfers, this is the main, if not only reason they decide to travel as far South as Rodanthe to score great surf. Now with the recent damage done from Hurricane Irene, there is the potential to have a permanent bridge built that might restrict all access to this coveted surf spot. To ensure that the Department of Transportation takes into consideration the opinions of surfers and beach goers alike, please take a brief moment to make yourself heard on this online petition: Click HERE: “Preserve Future Access to S-Turns”. Please consider signing soon as the deadline is January 20.
