Hello everyone! Welcome to the Spring 2019 Carolina Beach Freeride at Freeman Park discussion thread! (otherwise known as the north end). For those who do not know what Freeman Park is, it is a 4x4 only beach access that you can camp on and bring your skis to ride surf any time of the year. Basically this is a freeride weekend event starting Thursday and ending Sunday evening. There is an access fee at the entrance to Freeman Park and it is 40 dollars per night or you may buy a season pass for 150 dollars (75 dollars in December) and it will cover you for both the spring and fall freeride. You would need to bring all necessary camping gear, food, and beverages for the weekend. There is a grocery store and gas stations near Freeman Park for your convenience.

Everyone if you need to take a shower in the evenings or before you head home on Sunday there are public showers and water spickets for flushing out your skis at the lifeguard station and public parking lot towards the end of Canal drive right before the entrance to Freeman Park. There's also much nicer restroom facilities there than the porta potties on freeman park.

The camping area will be at the very point of Freeman Park where jet skis and boats are allowed to be pulled up on the beach at any time.

Note: this is a 4x4 vehicle only event, you either need to be able to take your skis out to the Park in the bed of a truck, hitch hauler, or Snow's Cut boat ramp is nearby and skis can be launched from there and driven around to the camping area on the point in a less than 5 minute drive! I highly suggest hitch haulers or truckbed methods! No trailers are allowed on Freeman Park! I will obtain a pass to allow unattached trailer parking at Snow's Cut Public Ramp again.

Date for the 2019 Spring event is May 30th- June 11th
