Abstract:
Surfing has become very popular along the Outer Banks, especially in the Cape Hatteras area where steepening and narrowing of the continental shelf creates big waves. Surfing has grown more family-oriented, and membership in the Outer Banks Surfing Association numbers over 400. Over the past decade surf shops have multiplied threefold. There are surfing restrictions, such as avoiding piers and wearing ankle ropes, but surfers champion coastal issues, working for clean water, clean beaches, and beach access.

Survivors migrated to Morehead City and Harkers Island, where they built new homes and continued their community traditions. Green chronicles the return of their descendants to the Banks to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the storm.

Abstract:
The state's oyster industry has declined since the start of the 20th-century, dropping from an annual harvest of two million bushels to 44,613 bushels in 1998. Over-harvesting, harvesting methods, and a natural occurring parasite are contributors to the decline. Recommendations to alleviate the oyster crisis include aquaculture, improving the quality of coastal waters, and developing disease resistant strains.

Today Swansboro is a picturesque town filled with shops, restaurants, and historic homes, a place many tourists miss in their haste to reach their beach rentals.
