Big Bertha!

Worth left our house at 1:27 am on Friday morning to head to Wilmington to surf the waves from Bertha. He had stalked the weather.com and the surf websites all week to make this choice. He finally decided to go on Thursday evening. He met up with some of our old buddies from Edge of the World, Nigel, and Landon and hit the water. Worth had a wonderful time. He says he is beat down today, but so thrilled he went. The waves were about 4-6 feet. Nigel took most of the pictures and we so appreciate you for that and for taking Worth in for the weekend! Thanks man.
Per worth~ The top picture is a nice wave on Masonboro Island, the bottom pictures are all Carolina Beach from left to right~ Worth, Worth, and Landon. The last row is Worth, Worth, and a guy named Joe.

Very cool pics. Were you nervous about him going?

Oh, man! Worth HAS GOT to meet Curt's brother Mitch. Mitch lives on the weather/wave report. He prints out the report everyday and puts it on the fridge.

But it looks like he had a VERY good time :)

WOW!!!! Those are great. How fun for him. I wish I could leave my house at 1:27 am and be at the beach by sunrise. I would only be in Texas or Denver.......

It's like I always say, When it's double overhead you gotta hit the beach.

Hey Sunday - I've not commented in so long! Be assured I faithfully read about you and your beautiful family! Keep up the good work.

I must say I would be a nervous wreck if Aaron had a hobby like surfing! I don't even let him ride his bike to work - I am a nervous nelly.

Have a great day!

man look at your hubby ripping it sunday! go worth. i am very impressed. i recall a very similar trip back in the college days that also included many of the EOW crew and a hurricane. what i remember most is thinking how crazy it was to be driving TOWARDS a hurricane and also baxter puking out of the van most of the way home....lovely. i'm pretty sure there was some beer drinking in the van that contributed to chris' ailments.
