new to the area SUP with dogs

hello everyone! I am new to the South Brunswick County North Carolina area and I’m looking for local knowledge on the best areas to Launch a paddleboard but also be able to come back and spend a few hours on the beach or Park or wherever I am with both dogs, any suggestions?

PS. Ive been to Oak Island quite a few times and I do like it but the tides in some of the areas can be rather strong and when you add in the boats and Jet skiers it makes it a little difficult to paddle. plus I wouldn’t mind a few areas to be able to frequent so when tourist season is back in full swing I have a quieter area to go to. Thank you for any advice that I get maybe I will run into some of the local Peddlers feel free to say hello
