    yeah you're right about the water temp and the tourist. I was at TI this past weekend in Nc and was loving the 65 degree water with 80 degree air temp, then back up here with 50 degree water, guess i'll get used to it

    Go to either Croatan or the North End(40 street and above). Sandbridge gets very bad too; especially when the water warms up and the kids are out of school, the tourists are in town, and all the "I only surf when the water is warm" people are out. VB usually sucks in the summer anyway unless we get a strong northeast wind or hurricane.

    your right about the crowds in the summer but sandbridge is usually not to bad compared to croatan or 1st street especially! sandbridge doesnot usually have the verbal crowd like 1st street

    I know I was wrong about Sandbridge. I wanted to keep it a "secret." It never has a "verbal" crowd as you said Venice Beach, cough, I mean 1st street has. I save 1st street for 5-6 ft and 30 degrees usually. Croatan is not bad if you don't mind (no offense to anyone reading this) all the high school kids and it is one of the only places w/o those bs surfing laws in the summer.

    Thanks fellas, I'm not trying to be all "yo I'm new tell where the best spots are bra" sorry if it came off that way, I just figured sandbridge was no big secret and wondered if it got super crowded just like va beach. what's the parking situation at croatan and sandbridge?

    at croatan in the lot for a $ or on the side of Croatan rd or twighlight for free. If you stay after 7pm they'll tow you. Lot closes at 8.
