Atmosphere

Headhigh says :
The crowds are mainly at the piers plus a few localized sandbars. Waves work best just prior to approaching frontal systems. Usually have hard onshores for 1-2 plus days before front and a few hours to a couple of days of glassy waves after front passes offshore. Hurricane swell usually arrives 3-5 days before the storm and can last up to a week plus.

General

Headhigh says :
Overall, its not as good as Wrightsville and doesn't compare to Hatteras, but with a little wind or swell, some fun times can be had.

dont expect to get waves - the waves may suck, but the locals are way better than you (and anywhere in NC for that matter). show respect and expect to get sprayed
