obx in april
I live in Middletown, De and can get there in 6 or less hours. It should only 7 or so and it is worth it if you can catch a swell.
344 mi – about 7 hours 20 mins
Hopefully you are heading 13 all the way down.
it is best to keep an eye on the surf forecast, before you head down. Like anywhere on the east coast, the Outer Banks can have its flat spells. However, it is generally a little more consistent than other areas. And, warmer than New Jersey surf.

not too sure about the temp of the water but I was there last april in a 4-3 with boots and gloves. It was closer to the beginning of april I believe.
mid 50s? the water can be warmer and colder depending on currents.
Just south of the Cape, in Frisco and below, the water is always warmer. I trunked it down there one year in March.
