ATLANTIC BEACH, CARTERET COUNTY -

A Crystal Coast native is comparing Tropical Storm Andrea to past storms.

Bill Barts has been surfing for 50 years. He grew up in Atlantic Beach and used to head to the water when swells were large. He said only highly experienced surfers should head out onto the water when the sea gets rough. 

Barts also said Andrea's early arrival is not common for the region.
