- this is a great place when it goes off. unfortunately it is not a very consistent break. which is why it's pretty packed when a swell comes through. and all this localism about guys breaking boards if you aren't a local is just internet tough guy talk. all the localism only exists on the internet. people aren't territorial at any of these places. just respect the places, and the locals when you go to them. seriously when poverty is going off about 3/4ths of the people there i have never seen before. poverty gets real sick when a big swell comes through that there are people riding the ferry from delaware over. it's a great experience to catch poverty on a sick swell.

Overrated - Unfortunately this place is like flypaper. The view from the road attracts all the insects in. But the surf is better for photos than ridin'. Buzz buzz!

Dont come here - If you come to Poverty and the waves dont snap your board in half..I WILL!!
If I see you and dont know you..Leave...For real!
Dont risk getting your face punched in.
