    The pier and the lighthouse are both great spots. I would definitely have a 4/3 and booties on-hand for that period of the month. The water is going to be warmer than up in Nags Head, but I still...

    Yes, unless you plan on staying out for more than 3 hours at-a-time ... but from what I've seen, a good chest-zip 4/3 with integrated hood will work for around 2 1/2 to 3 hours max with both air and...

    No, you're not too young at all, although for big waves I think you need to be more than just a "surfer"... You really need to be a waterman. When you talk about Mavericks, Waimea, or outer reefs in...
