are you seeing the charts in rodanthe on saturday. Screw that "spot" im going to a way better spot in pea island, and most other people should think about doing so also. Come to think of it there are tons of spots there so go find you own spot. Especially with combo swells like were gonna have on sat, any spot will be good. Just don't go to s turns or shipwrecks, cause those are my spots... hahaha just kidding
Boards and Spots?
I really want to know who buys a surfboard for under 600 bucks? In case you haven't shopped latley, the only way to score decent board under 600 is to make it your self! Surf tech is the best deal right now and your starting at 650...and thats economical.
THERE ARE NO SPOTS! The ocean dried up years ago. Everywhere stinks. Surfing is over rated. I am selling my boards and I am going to start playing bad-mitten! Sh!t rocks.
What are the water temps around OC looking like? Mid 50's?
Whoa there Debbie Downer, ok my 6'6" $525 then new and my 6'1" $100 bout 15 yrs old but best board ever, and sweet one less surfer to get in my way:D ha jk but seriously bad-mitten?
mid 50's in delmarva. a quality 3/2, and booties should do you. if your 3/2 isn't very quality you may want to go thicker.
Thanks I appreciate it! See you guys in the water tomorrow!
I was out tues or wed with a spring suit on. It wasn't so bad as long as the air temp is high enough.
It was still cold as anything tho. :P
Serously though, a 3/2 or 4/3 should be fine. :P
ya you dont need boots in vb at all. i even saw someone bare backing it the other day and he said it wasnt horrible, he stayed out for like 2 hours
Sea Colony lifeguards are a joke. half of them don't even talk English Chris. Trust me I was a security guard there at one point during my high school years. We were a top-knotch group that did our best to keep everybody safe, unlike the lifeguards who most of the time tried to show off their fancy ATVS, and tell us that we don't have jurisdiction on their beaches....Steve Oboyle and Jordan Obyole were the biggest part of the problem.

I've seen some good size waves in my time --- Puerto Rico mainly, and most of the lifeguards I know would probably drown. I also know from my friend Nelson Bunting that the Sea Colony guards like to think they are hawaiin -- most of the time they take a lot of help from bethany beach in the summer due to poor training. Just my 2 cents.
Worst guards by far --- Southside State Park.
Will C, I knew someone would know the guards I was speaking of and I am glad I will not see them tomorrow!
