The area is also widely known as OBC or OBTS by the younger generation of locals. This was originated by a few surfers from the area during the early 80s and is derived from the OBC NSG, the latter an abbreviation for the north shore gang. Lisa Anderson a popular surfer grew up in OBC where she learned how to surf. At one time a fiercely territorial local surf spot.

Perhaps the most interesting fact about the heritage of the OBC is that it has been intensely preserved over a long lineage of pirates and smugglers who settled in the area long before Florida was adopted as a state.
Residents who are born in the OBC, raised and die in OBC are now a tiny remnant of the community. Most residents were born elsewhere and many are snowbirds who live elsewhere in the summers. The surfers and poor elderly are being replaced by younger and wealthier homeowners and seasonal residents who purchase their older cottages as tear downs and replace them with modern and high style beach houses to support their "glitter" lifestyle.
