Carolina Beach

Edit Spot

Great spot,one of my favorite's in North carolina even though Hatteras takes the number #1 spot....But have fun and respect the locals!!!

please take CB off this site, do that for us we have a small surf community and we dont want you guys to ruin it.
Very Respectfully, Fitz

Additional Info:
Great Surf area a lot of surf, watch out for Localism the Guys with Longhair don't mess with and always remember they are watching you there is a group of Hawaiians don't paddle out with a ego or you want be leaving the beach with a smile. Parking is mostly $5 for 24hrs unless you decide to go down to the peir there you are ran buy the Money snatching clock! Beware cops love giving tickets if you don't pay...
