Long Beach _5 in North Carolina is an exposed beach break that has unreliable waves. Summer offers the favoured conditions for surfing. The best wind direction is from the north. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Best around high tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
