"the national guard was hanging around us for a while....we split up. 15 minutes later I get a text "they are gone. we are going for it"
WAAAAAAA!!!!! storm riders :)
That's crazy. I went to Ocean City, MD a couple years ago for a wedding. Whole beach is just thumping shore break. Great for body surfing, but I can't imagine (or don't have the balls) to surf hurricane swell.
I grew up in MD. There is a decent right at the 1st street jetty, and Indian River Inlet up the road a ways usually has decent sandbars. That looks absurd though, I've never surfed anything over about head high in OC.
Us folks who grew up in NJ lived for hurricane season!! So glad they got some!
I broke my first board (7' 6" Byrne) at 17th Street!
Some bombs out there (East Coast)! Check this if you haven't already... http://www.surfline.com/surflinetv/sixty-seconds/60-seconds-peter-mendia...
My parents have a beach house in Rehoboth. I learned to surf at the Indian River Inlet. I still keep a board there for when I visit. Good times.
