Where is a good area to stand-up paddle board around Topsail Island? Where can we park and easily get the boards in?

There are several really good areas but two of the most convenient are located in Surf City and North Topsail Beach.

The one in Surf City is at the Soundside Park, which is to your left when you come onto the island over the swing bridge via Hwy 50/210.

The one in North Topsail Beach is located at the wildlife boat launch area under the highrise bridge that leads onto the island (Hwy 210). There is also one about a mile away from that at the canoe/kayak launch at the town park. To get there, you go over the highrise bridge, take a left onto New River Inlet Road and the park will be a little ways down the road on your left.

Parking at those areas is usually plentiful this time of year.

If you want to do SUP in the ocean, go across the street from the North Topsail Beach town park and there is a nice beach access. Actually, you will be able to find beach accesses with parking all along the length of Topsail Island.

I hope this helps.
