Well everyone knows the best place to surf or sponge is definatly south side of the Inian River Inlet. But the hurricane surf that hits after the flat spells of summer really make this street go off, man it was 6ft+ with short but fun barrels to catch on the sandbar. Easy to find with a bunch of big houses at the entrance of the beach. After this street everything turns to crap cause of the rehomo area. Parking is a big problem so beward but its usally only crowded in the summer and the surf her sucks then anyway. Go to Dewey Beach Surf and Sport for more tips about Delaware surfing.
Real fun when the ESA and Skimeast Contests come. Plenty to do intown when the surf sucks. Something about a wave pool down route 1 more so that might be fun. Real chilled out super crowded in the summer i only surf after the lifeguards leave then the kidies go home. Only went off 2 or three times last summer but the mornings had good rideable 2 and 3 foot stuff.
Its great if you live down her in Delaware I appreciate this spot but if it sucks go to Navy Jetty or South Side. Also some local kids are starting to get good but they wont beat your ass or anything unless you dont respect them.
