update info, nothing good to tell - Old trail from road near Lower Thoroughfare bridge has been closed. Walking south from Diamond Beach is closed due to wildlife protection volunteers and federal law. Park in wildlife area and walk the long trail to a deck which over looks the beach from the top of the dunes. You can check the waves, but forget about taking the boards or surfing. The only access may be by boat. Surf elsewhere, the hassle isn't worth it, which is terrible, because I've had a thousand surf sessions at this wonderful beach in the old days. Any one with more positive news, please post it.

if you want to go - sorry for any past problems surfers have had,i am a coastie and yes it is a goast guard base, so it is a military installation (its not like you would waltz on to fort bragg...) with that being said, the beach itself is not coast guard property, so this surf spot is totally legit, if you wanna go shoot me an email michaelscottcameronjr@yahoo.com theres a group of us that go a couple times a week warm or cold.
take it easy,

this place aint that great! - They say the grass is always greener on the other side...or in this case the waves are better on the other side of the rocks! The waves are the same in the area either side! there is just hype around this spot cause you need CG i.d to surf it..big deal
