    Skates do not have venomous barbs like stingrays although some skates do have pointed thorns. Also stingrays give birth to live young where skates lay eggs. I really dont worry about them at all, i think its pretty cool when they are active and you can see them during your morning surf. I would definately rather "see" them than not see them. Plus, shuffle your feet while you are walking in the water, this will keep you from stepping on a stingray, hence not getting stung.

    Just fear the sharks, cannonball jellyfish are harmless.

    I was out late yesterday in wrightsville and saw a decent sized stingray a few feet from me. freaked me out. my friend said that that morning he saw a bunch of cabbage heads but i havent seen any... must mean its almost summer
    what bugs me more than jellyfish and stuff is all the damn tourist boogie boarders and waders that get in your way... must have dodged dozens yesterday.

    yeah those tourists and boogie boarders bother me. i just use them as target practice if they're in the surf zones for my spray.

    i like winter also since the tourists arent out. but you always have to put all that rubber on thats one thing i hate about the winter while surfing, I'm just glad to get out of the suit for this year at least.

    ~~~~WHAT is up with the stingrays? Has anyone noticed the massive amount of stingray schools running up and down the coast? Is it normal for this time of year or all the time? Whats going on. I'm getting pretty freaked out from them bumping into me.
    Have you tried 64th Ave. N. in Myrtle Beach? It breaks there sometimes and might be closer to you than NC. The problem is you would have to deal with 501 traffic to get there. Or you could take 544 to Surfside. 13th Ave S. is a popular spot. Pawleys always has bigger surf than Myrtle Beach. That could be an option for you.

    Shuffling my feet makes them double back or come toward your feet. From experience! Had a couple bump me that way. Just be cool, everyhtings okay.
