    Bald Head Island?

    Hey- I just got back from my first surf trip over to Bald Head Island and man does it have a sick set up. I have been wanting to go over there for the last couple of years now & finally did it. If you go all the way to East Beach where the Shoals Club is- you have the point of Cape Fear right there- that is where the East facing beaches meet with the South facing beaches- at this place there is a long sand point that has a sick point break set up at a mid to low tide. This place has some of the best potential that I've seen on the East Coast & I have surfed every state from Maine to Florida. It was only waist+ the day I went, but the rights were reeling down along the point for a 100 yards- some of the sickest waves I have ever seen here on the East Coast. It looked like a mini version of the Super Bank. Has anyone else ever surfed here? Let me know how it was & the best swell direction to get it good.

    It looked to me that an East swell would be best- the day I went it was a NE/E swell. Probably an NE, E, or SE would have the point working. Did I mention that it is legal to camp right on the beach, I spoke with the Bald Head Island sherif department and they said it was ok- So just pitch a tent right in front of the point & there you go, you have a killer surf & camping trip

    I've surf this break on S swell and ENE. S swell lefts light this place up if you THINK about it. All I can say is keep your eyes open because I have been ran out of the water countless times. Some of the biggest sharks and the most sharks I have ever seen, in one session.

    There are other waves very similar to this along our coast that aint quite as sharky. THANK GOD THEY ARE ONLY ACCESSABLE BY BOAT.

    I have seen some big shadows around those bars too, but when the winds are right it does go off.

    I work at Bald Head and it barely ever breaks. I've only seen it waist high at best, and thats when it is chest/head everywhere else around. And it is very sharky. Those pics look like you caught it at a rare time, looks pretty fun actually. You'd have to be pretty lucky to catch it good, but do your hw and that might just happen; and you'll defintley have it all to yourself.
