I have zero surf experience right now, I'm waiting for my friend to get a kayak that can handle the ocean and we are going to start this summer. We both have pretty solid rolls and are going to practice in the surf as the conditions affect even the best of rolls I hear. So you think 25 miles is the most I should plan for on a daily basis? I was being optimistic at 35 but coming from you with experience if you say 25 i'll plan for that. Great insight on the camping spots, I think I am going to just have to start calling outfitters along the coastal Carolinas and see if they know any places and hope they fall within the 25 mile range and then go from there with the issues.
