Low - big low went right off the coast night before warm SW > WSW winds 25+ mph offshore winds, strong ground swell held up all morning and winds didnt kill swell as fast as usual due to more powerful swell a few overhead sets

NVR GO!!! - great waves but the guys r mean and crowded hit 42nd st 40th etc. were the houses r trust me

By i am the best , 18-08-2008

??? - the old guys think they rule, very crowded for such weak waves, they get mad just cuz you are there. whatever. i only surf there because of the easy access. this virginia surf is not anything to write home to mom about. im just trying to get adjusted to riding such slow waves, though when Bertha sent waves i have to admit it was quite fun and less crowded. longboarders catch most so just paddle hard and rip!

Becareful if you're hard of hearing.... - If you have hearing problems, I don't recommend coming here. It's quite crowded and not only that, the surfers can become punchy and having problems hearing might just ruin your day.
