Emerald Isle

Emerald Isle is great for skimboarding for several reasons: The beaches outside of a few public beaches, even in the peak of the summer, are generally sparsely populated, so there is plenty of room. There is also a fairly gentle slope for beginners to learn, yet close shore-break waves for the advanced to ride out on. Lastly, the water is… Continue »

Ocean Isle Beach

This is a cool little beach that is not overly crowded. It is very long and easy to ride if you catch a good tide and a good day. Even on a regular day it is still good. Some times of year like late August are great if you like to go towards the ocean (good slope), yet Spring is… Continue »

Duck is one of the most underrated spots in North Carolina. It is also one of the coolest little towns ever. Over the past 10 years I have seen everything from head high powerful wraps to perfect peeling point break liners. Just like most other spots in N.C, in Duck you have to do some searching in order to find… Continue »

Atlantic Beach

This spot has very good moments. Although during low tide there isn’t much to skim on, high tide can give you many good rides. The shore break during high tide is constantly 4-5 feet breaking about 20 feet off of the sloping shore. It is awesome for airs and cutting into shore breaks. When you come on to the island… Continue »

Wrightsville Beach

Wrightsville Beach, NC. When you cross the drawbridge to Harbor Island, veer to the left. You’ll pass a fire station on your right. At the end of this road, you’ll see Johnnie Mercer’s pier. Park somewhere around there. Parking in the summer is freaking impossible, so you may have to park on the other side of the bridge and hoof… Continue »

Kitty Hawk

Kitty Hawk can get great liners and great wraps. There are no consistent spots here because storms are always moving around the sand. You just have to drive up and down the beach road (the 12) and check different streets. Kitty Hawk gets fun waves on any swell and is offshore with any kind of west wind. View Larger Map Continue »
