Yep. We have surfshops, surfboards, roof racks with surfboards, surfboards all over the beach. We have surfer boys and wahinis. We have surf music and we have surf bands….we just have no surf. That NatGeo reporter must’ve just graduated from the Fairbanks Alaska School of Ice Cube Sales because he doesn’t know DIDDLY about surfing!!!

Better bring a lot of change for parking, and always be on time to add quarters/time because the parking ticket brigade is quite dedicated in Wrightsville Beach.

I think reporters must get paid by WB every time they mention the town, it is a nice place but not that nice. all prior comments made by other are spot on!
