    OBX trip

    Im taking my son to the outer banks for his birthday this august. Does anyone know any good spots? Were staying at Frisco woods. I know people dont like giving away their spots but if no one wants to tell me, then we'll just surf at Frisco Pier. But it would be good to know some spots.

    Unless you have a 4X4, The Frisco Pier is probably your best bet to surf. Don't forget to check the old Buxton lighthouse jettys for waves too (no 4X4 required). It's a crowded spot but is a good option to check if Frisco is flat. It's about a 15 minute drive from Frisco.

    As for places south of Frisco, there are plenty of places as you head towards Hatteras village, but you have to hunt for them. Just keep an eye out for a lot of cars pulled to the side of the road with empty surfboard roof racks and stickers. Keep in mind that if there is any decent swell at all, you can pretty much surf anywhere since there are sandbars all up and down the shoreline from Frisco to Hatteras Village. Good luck.

    Well said. Frisco Pier is the place you wanna go during the Summer if you're in Frisco - especially now that it's been closed down for renovations. It's really nice to not have to worry about fishermen while you're trying to get barrel haha...

    Frisco

    I recommend staying at a different campground if possible. Buxton Woods might be a good one if yall are set on surfing so far south. Avoiding Frisco is typically a good idea no matter what time of year. It's extremely fickle and doesn't get good often. Even south swells are 99% of the time better somewhere north.

    well it depends on the wind. there are times when Frisco is firing but Buxton and up is completely flat. occupational hazard of surfing OBX in the Summertime...but yeah, most consistent stuff seems to happen north. I'll always love Frisco though, I can sit out by that pier for hours lol...

    No doubt. Frisco is one of the best places, great sandbars (at least where I go) especially in the Fall. A north wind really cleans the place up. But yeah, heed his advice and stay away... all the more for me.
