ESPN Interviews Outer Banks Professional Surfer Jesse Hines

Mickey “2M” McCarthy

Jesse Hines grew up on the Outer Banks and honed is surfing skills on all of the local OBX breaks.  With some guidance from fellow Outer Banks local and fellow surf professional, Noah Snyder, Jesse has developed into a well-renowned professional surfer highly regarded for his ability to find his way into the cavernous space inside a wave, the barrel.

Jesse’s skills have been displayed in video, print, online, etc.  Last year, Jesse made the cover of Surfer, was awarded “best barrel” by Billabong, and won “best barrel” at the WRV Battle of the Banks competition.

Unfortunately, the fall of 2009 brought Jesse some unlucky news, a broken leg, but nature tends to balance itself out; limiting one faculty generally leads to greater appreciation of other aspects of life.  Jesse has been off his board for a month or two, but he has found a great opportunity to slow down and focus on his family and his interest in music.

ESPN surfing caught up with Jesse last week to see how his recovery is progressing.
