Surfing & Paddle Boarding in Emerald Isle

The Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Sound provide the perfect setting for surfers of all levels. Surfers are drawn to the breaks and crashing waves at The Crystal Coast. If you can imagine it, the waters of The Crystal Coast can make it happen. If you can't quite ride the break of an ocean wave, look into Paddle Boarding the calm waters of the Bogue Sound. Many local surf shops have hourly/daily rentals for both surf boards, and paddle boards.

Visit a surf shop for rentals or information on learning how to surf.
