Why are you talking? I lived in Wrightsville for 4 years and surfed every swell down there at Wrightsville, Masonboro, or CB. Yes, the water is clean, but it's not refreshing at 85+ in the summer. To be honest with you, I prefer the surf up here in monmouth county.
Sandbars down there can't even hold it when it gets big like the jetty's up here do.
