This award was created to reflect the importance of community spirit and personal contributions to the culture of water sports throughout the history of New Hanover County Beaches. We wish to celebrate those individuals and groups who represent sportsmanship both in and out of the water. Those we recognize with this award exemplify the best of Wrightsville Beach in their character, demeanor, and spirit both in competition and in their respect for the community.

The Wrightsville Beach Museum Waterman Hall of Fame is intended to be a lasting tribute for the achievements of the generations of Wrightsville Beach watermen and women who have shaped this community and its relationship with the water. Wrightsville Beach was established because of the beauty and lure of the ocean and its marshes as a place to fish, sail, swim, surf and recreate on the water. The Hall of Fame will embody the values exhibited by the best of those who have made their home here based on that relationship with the water.

The Wrightsville Beach Museum Waterman Hall of Fame awards are selected by the Wrightsville Beach Waterman Hall of Fame Board comprised of members of the Wrightsville Beach Museum Board of Directors and community participants who represent a cross-section of those who have been a part of Wrightsville Beach water sports throughout the decades. There will be an emphasis on diversity of generations and sports within the Hall of Fame.

Please join us for the Celebration and Inductions!

Thank you,

Skipper Funderburg, Executive Vice President, Wrightsville Beach Museum and Chair of 2017 Waterman Hall of Fame

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!

Please read the report description for a better explanation of all factors regarding the waves. We report conditions in "A moment in time" and conditions can change right after the report or between reports. Don't kill the messenger. Email Mother Nature for changing the conditions if you miss it. Thanks for checking WBlivesurf.com. The only report in town that checks the surf 4 times daily with our feet in the sand during rain, sleet, snow, or shine.
