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...
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

- I love Carolina Beach. Im up there every summer and the locals are really cool as long as you respect them just like any other place. The surf is pretty good and pretty consistant, its where i started out.
