Hatteras Windsurfing Launches - Ego Beach

Advanced to Expert

Ego Beach is located directly across the highway from the Canadian Hole. It was recently renamed as a day use area but it is still traditionally known as the Canadian Hole. Come in the spring and fall and you'll see why. The parking lot will be filled with surfmobiles posting license plates from Quebec.

At The Hole/Ego Beach you will find a large paved parking lot and hard packed sand to the south. You must rig in the sand or on the pavement however because the grassy areas are off limits by the park service to allow regrowth of the vegetation. Enclosed bathrooms potties/changing rooms and a nice shower have been recently added.

The Ego Beach is a great spot for both sound and ocean sailing since The Hole is an easy carry. But watch out because Ego Beach can have some of the nastiest shore break anywhere on the island.
