Most of the threads on SI are overly concerned with swell size...but
Cmon, let's be realistic, unless all you care about is dropping in on a wave only to bottom turn into white water close-outs, Size really doesn't matter. I'll take any ride able and NOT CLOSING OUT wave anyday! And for the record CB ( I've caught such long fun rides these last few days with NOBODY OUT!) has been so much more consistent than WB this year it's kind of a shame. peace yall!

Cant we all just get along and agree that the waves are generally crap year round here and just be glad we don't surf at Oak Island. Except at the south end of WB! where it is the greatest spot on earth, everyone should go there, I heard they give UNCW students free trucker hats just for surfing there!

It's most definitely not a shame when you live in CB.
Although, its a well known fact that the local CB surfers will pee all over your car if you come from WB. That's a shame. No one likes a pee car.

Yes please everybody go to the south end of WB! The waves are always 2ft bigger there and everybody is really nice, no kooks at all!

Waves have been pretty fun all week here but I agree, definitely better at the south end so everybody should stay on that side of crystal.

This thread made my day. I really mean that. Thanks, babygrand.
Don't drink the water.

It all depends on swell direction and wind. The Frying Pan Shoals shadow CB if the swell is more dominantly out of the S and SE--it will invariably be smaller and less powerful in CB than WB in this case.
The thing that Surfline doesn't mention is that neither WB or CB have the best swell window in Onslow Bay.
