Drive into Ocean City, head North, then follow every bucked tooth kid with a 5'2" fishy under their arm. Don't worry if you paddle out further down the beach they'll follow you.

Dont get in the locals' way, be happy with second peak, if it's too crowded, just head anywhere in that range. New local hub of great surfers, The Kellys, talent from OCHS surf team, lots of local pros.
Vibe out here ranges with the surf conditions. If it's going off, everyone is having a good time, but if the waves are scarce, the locals are as bitter as anywhere else. I think that goes for everywhere though, right?
This spot is fun and you can usually score a wave here if you don't have a bunch of time to check the harder to reach spots. Can't surf here 10am-5pm from memorial day to labor day because of the lifeguards, so if it's goin off, be there as soon as the lifeguards split to get a chance at an empty set. Just weave your way through the swimmers and enjoy the look of terror that comes across their face as you're blazin down the line.

Look OUT for Baywatch dude! - Look out for the guy that looks like Newmie. He'll snake you, splash water in your face, and have you flying back up to Conshahawkin faster than you can say George Washington.
