 Additional Information

This is a day trip with a few friends and a skipper, perhaps. I have not been out there personally, but I wanted to post this spot to see if others will post information about it and their experiences. I have spoken with enough locals to put it on this website and get you out there if you choose to go. The locals who have surfed it say: Once it's on there are about 8-10 breaks out there; it's deep; it's probably got a few sharks here and there; the rides last forever (dude said: "Probably not as long as some some breaks in Costa Rica, but almost"). More local info.: It seems to only break when there is considerable swell, and since it's a bit further out, it acts a swell magnet. Also, since the shoals never break surface, the swells will wrap around the sandbar and produce some clean waves even when condition are onshore in Ocean City.

Atmosphere

These shoals lie just within view from the Jetty straight out and appear from shore to be roping lefts and rights that peel flawlessly forever and break with a punch. The look from the beach is an awesome sight...you just want to hop on a skiff and go!

General

Basically I don't know because I haven't surfed it. Looks scary and intimidating being so far off the coast. Course, it aint no Cortes Bank, that's for sure!

From the looks of things, it appears that on the right day, with a few beers, a good crew, and the right skipper, you can have one epic surf trip right in good old Maryland.

Better to tow then paddle - Its only good when its big.. and can be hard to get in the right spot to paddle but its super fun to tow.

over - a recent storm destroyed the bar so the shoals are non existent, it won't build so its not even worth it anymore

Not bad.. - Been out there a few times by boat, I wouldn’t paddle it though, you could get caught in an outgoing tide in the channel. Could be a disaster. By boat it’s a lot of fun though. The bar is pretty shallow, you can touch the bottom in most of the area. Fun, long rides on a good day. I’d be more worried about people on jet skis then sharks.
