The surfing is just fun in NC. Not serious.
Raise your family have fun!!!
If your serious surfer, well then go to Kauai, South Africa,Big Island, Fiji, Portugal, Santa Cruz, Argentina, and North coast of Spain. Inthat order.

Then show off on the North shore.
The entire east coast isn't even on the radar. This is mostly due to the direction of the global wind currents and lack of reefs.
Done most of this! Trust me.

PS: The reason Australia is not on this list, too crowded!!
PS 1: If you do not know the places above then.... notreally a surfer.
PS 2: O, if your military (Navy). Midway works!!!!! Nocrowds!!

Resurrected from the dead!

Jajajaja, I know those places.... can't say I've surfed them but I know them.

I never take surfing seriously..... but, I'd be lying if I said I didn't have some face time on some big cold and warm water big swells.
But, the bottom line is I will never be a pro nor have I ever wanted to be! It seems counter to the spirit of surfing if (and nobody will) you ask me.

We ended up on the coast of Mainland Mexico for a year and a half and now we are in the central highlands for a few years.... the Mexican Pacific coast is now my home break.

Thanks for a good morning smile.

i agree with the person that has been to hawaii... if you are born and raised here (in NC) you don't have much to compare to. having lived in florida and hawaii and now nc, this place sucks. my husband is especially depressed. even during hurricane season it wasn't goos enough to go out with was many people that were out there. we moved here from kauai (which had awesome surfing).. we just had a baby and wanted to move closer to family. but thought this place would be ok for surfing.. what a joke

we are moving back to kauai. not only for surf but thats a big reason. mainly because the mainland sucks

Thanks, maybe I have been lucky, but I have surfed Wrightsville Beach on three visits and never was skunked. I mean a couple days were knee high, but that is enough for me and my longboard. And it seems like dawn till 10 or so it is always clean. I have surfed California many times and very often it's been so blown out I can barely catch a wave all week. I guess I am an old man surfer, so North Carolina suits me. In fact I convinced my wife to retire in Wilmington. We just bought a house a few miles from the beach so I am really stoked. It will be a few years though, but maybe the rental property will require a few surf trips, I mean rental management visits!
