Once you are in Ocean City, drive until you see the sign for 48th street, turn in and try to find a spot.Ocean City is always ultra crowded in the summer but almost empty from late september to late may.If you are going in the summer bring your wallet to buy food and pay for hotel and get there early to find a parking spot.

Get there early and pray for a spot, not that many surfers in the water but a lot of people on vacation
Its pretty mellow, no localism or anything, no sharks to worry about,just people.
I love the spot, great for surfers and bodyboarders that are just starting out and in the winter good for everyone.

Bill Wise - Remembering long ago surf mag article about surfer from here became tragically disabled from spinal injury surfing accident. Just saw note of his passing TSJ. He was praised in both issues. Any comment from those who knew him?

BULLS*** - Dude the place is packed from waist high and up. Everyone thinks their the next slater or they are total kooks and have no idea what they are doing. The worst thing about this spot is the localism. The douchebags from GAY-coast surf shop think they run shit, but all they run is that tourist attraction they built last year. Im moving out west!!!

48th steert???!?? - I'm not taking anything away from 48th but there are alot of other good breaks as well. During Hurricanes a sick spot is 130th street. 8th street gets some pretty consistent break there and The Pier and inlet tend to go off with the right swell direction. You gotta look at the type of storm and its winds to decide which place will be the way to go.
