Well, currently the best spot on the outer banks.
this can change if major storms that made this break will shift it elsewere.
ADDED BY ADMIN - 16 AUG 06 - this spot seems to doesn't break anymore. if you get more infos... just share it! ;-))
Mellow, though I would recomend to kind of be on top of your game to really enjoy this break.
The best on the east coast.

photos - this wave was good from late summer through early fall. now it is a terribly deep hole that doesnt ever break. the first picture above is Jason Andre and was taken at the LIGHTHOUSE in buxton, and not the first ramp(askins creek) in avon. the second picture was taken there though, it is Will Skudin.
