I just had a few questions about the wilmington area. Carolina Beach in particular. I am also interested in what the laws are in wrightsville as well...
But here are my questions:
How many surf beaches are there in CB? How many total blocks of surfing beaches are there? Also, what time of year are these surf beaches enforced? What are the hours of the surf beaches? In OCMD where I am from, it was like 10am-5pm i believe.
Also, what are the leash laws there? I know there are no reefs and large kelp beds, so for a shortboarder like me, wearing a leash is fine. There is really no point not too.... But if there was only a small swell in the water, and I wanted to paddle out on my 10 foot single fin, would I have to wear a leash at all times? Or do I only have to wear a leash during the "surf beach"/lifeguard hours????
If I am up at 6:30 am out longboarding with no leash and a cop sees me, am I getting a ticket? That is my question... Not that big of a deal. Im just curous. I know that longboarding with a leash is a pain in the ass if you are trying to get your feet moving around on the ol' log.
