Corolla
 
Hey yall Im going to be heading to Corolla next weekend for the first time in a very long time. Im wondering where is the best place to stop and air down before going on the beach and where is the nearest air station when I get off the beach I dont have any kind of OBA system. Also if yall have any other helpful tips or pointers let me know thanks

You can air down anywhere. The closest place to air up is at Wink's of Corolla.

Yep. Its not far at all after you come off beach. Or you could just get a portable air pump for less than $30 .The last time I was there it took forever to air up.

Just be safe and follow the rules on the beach down there and you'll be fine. Winks is the best / last place to get fuel and air up/ down before getting onto the beach.

That sounds like a good enough place as any. Correct me if Im wrong but is that the place that also has a burger king? Maybe near the Whalehead Club?

Beer is the first thing on my list to bring which naturally leads to cooler and ice:thumb:

Also is that little BBQ shack still there behind the light house?

-Winks is the last gas station on your left as you're heading to the beach. The one with the Burger King is down near TimBukII Shopping Center near the "beach superstore"

-Yes ... Damn good BBQ!!

We've been on the beach at the south end of Hatteras for a week. Driven over to Ocracoke twice and have seen some things that should not have made it on the beach...vehicles also.

You'll have fun. :punk:

mattjm1017 07-07-2012 07:03 PM

Well today was a bust we left at 0930 finally got to the turn for Corolla at about 1230 went down 2 miles in 40 minutes and said the hell with it :surrender: turned around and went to the inlaws resort pool by the wal mart instead. Didnt even see the beach maybe another weekend will be better.
