The best selection I've ever seen of frozen yogurts, toppings, and sauces I've ever seen - I could've eaten here every day.

Good yogurt. Nice employees. Check it out. Trying to not violate TripAdvisor rules. Look up when you are there. Use it to teach children a yougurt "lesson". Look AROUND outside. Absolutely loved the Surfin Spoon. Lots of seating when we were there, but I imagine during the summer it’s slammed! Great yogurt, super clean, very pleasant employee when we were... More

This frozen yogurt shop makes for a nice stop on a hot afternoon. The decor is cute, the staff is extremely friendly, and I love their business model of "giving back". There is a large selection of flavors to choose from, and I appreciated that many of them were fat free and lowfat. (The nutritional information is not overtly displayed,... More

We loved stopping here for ice cream (for my wife) and vegan soft serve sorbet (for me). The place feels like hanging out in a friend's living room. There are pictures all over the walls telling the story of the restaurant, customers stick dollars and coins into the ceiling to donate to autism research (they fall out once it gets... More

This is a great place to go for dessert/snack. The best frozen yogurt I've ever had. Great toppings - fresh fruit, candies and hot fudge among other toppings. Surfing ambience hence the name!

I like their business model (giving back to charity) and their yogurt was very good. Very nice little shop and very clean. We will be back!

Great spot for Frozen Yogurt. It's one of those self-serve places--pick from 10 flavors, fill up your cup (3 sizes available), then top with as many toppings as you want and pay by weight. It can get pricy if you really fill it up, but it's not any pricier than other places of the same style. They had some great... More

Great atmosphere, everyone we talked to was really nice. It was cool to stick quarters in the ceiling. It was also cool to see the history of it over the previous restaurants that owned the building. The frozen yogurt itself was average quality. It was on par with every other yogurt place I've had. The toppings looked like they were... More

This is a chance to have the best 'build your own' frozen yogurt with a million yummy toppings and donate to a very worthy cause, Surfing for Autism. The owner, Whitney and her husband, Jesse are adorable and true OBX locals, who believe in giving back to their community. When you go in, look at the ceiling packed with quarters,... More
