Check out this link to Surfline with multiple pictures from North Carolina. Yeah we all know we don’t have the most consistent surf, but when it’s on it’s on. North Carolina is made up of many barrier Island that produce some of the best surf on the east coast. When the swell kicks up and the direction is right you can catch the surf all over NC. Some of the premier spots range from the Outerbanks of North Carolina to the incredibly crowded Wrightsville Beach. Living in Carolina Beach and primarily surfing here I can tell you… we never get any waves 😉 Emerald Isle and Topsail Island have been known to get some pretty good south swells. Oak Island has even come in with some epic conditions. So when people tell you there is NO surf in NC just say “I KNOW” pack your board and come on over, just make sure you check the swell charts first!
