Just park your car at the PBA and walk over the walkway. This spot used to break extremely well, but past hurricanes have shifted the sandbar... Only time will tell when this spot will be restored.

Atmosphere

Great spot to surf, many choices in this town, just drive around and pull over when you want. There are so many sandbars there.
+
I consider the Outer Banks my 'spot'. The atmosphere is exceptional, the locals are a hardcore bunch but mellow, and the surf exploration is endless. But don't go during the summer unless you’re heading south toward Pea Island for an incoming swell, there are just TOO many tourons (tourists/morons). Best time go is fall to winter, hurricane swells and no tourons.

Best place to grab breakfast if the morning session is flat, is Grits&Grill.

General

Like I said before, the spot used to be the spot to catch the swell. Unfortunately, hurricanes have shifted the sandbar and the break seems to be elusive. The last time I saw it decent (7'), was over four years ago. I'm not saying it hasn't been big there since, just saying that it's changed considerably.

On a sidenote, I visited the spot in October a couple week after Hurricane Isabel. The beach was a wreck, the PBA was off-limits, Kitty Hawk was in ruins, and the beach was covered in debris. A sad day.
