going north on rt. 9 make a right onto sea isle blvd. at the light. go over the bridge and into sea isle. make a left at the first light and follow that street going straight (you'll go around a bend), and you'll reach another light, make a left there and you're basically in strathmere. go down about 7 or 8 streets and park wherever is easiest to pull out of, and keep in mind the fact that the passanger side of the car is next to a dense amount of brush and dune grass so if you want to plan ahead for that...you should.

in the summer you have to park like a jerk if you want any breathing room. leave enough room infront of you to be able to pull out easy, and same for behind you but not enough for someone to 'squeeze in' and basically box you in. it sucks. share the surf and watch out for the fisherman, and whales.
the surf isnt ever really too crowded, because the majority of the tourists who want to surf are usually in sea isle or ocean city. theres always a handful of locals dispersed amongst the 10 or so beaches that make up strathmere. 7th street is adjacent to a boogie boarding beach in the summer, and a lot of times there are quite a few fisherman along the waters edge so be careful about them, getting hooked would suck. best surf is in late september and october after all the tourists leave and the beach is basically empty. surf is great when we get a storm. the guards around here are pretty chill for the most part, but i think its best when you go after 5, which is when they and the majority of the tourists leave for the day.
