This spot is not good for beginners. It can break fast and hollow. The drops can be very steep on big swells, and it tends to closeout. Beach Replenishment has ruined most of fenwick. Some popular streets are main street/146th, virginia, north carolina av, and lewes.
In the summer the place is crowded with kooks of all kinds. Surfing is not allowed in the summer accept during certain times. The Fenwick surf shop has a crew of guys who surf near the main beach. Localism is no problem, unless you blantantly drop in on everyone.
This spot can be good to surf if you are around the area and dont' want to check anywhere else. It isn't the numero uno spot around, but when its not closing out, it can be a fun beach break.

Fenwick - I grew up going to fenwick and dredging has ruined the waves. Now fenwich almost always shorebreak but on some occasions you can find a good day or two.
