I live in NC and me and my dad are going up to OCMD around the 18th and 19th for a little surf road trip going from there to VB and then down to the banks. i have never surfed OCMD of VB so I have no idea what to expect. I was wondering if any of y'all can give me some advice on board choice and what rubber i need to bring. Any info is appreciated.
To me OC can definitely dump fast and hard, especially on the out going tide at particular spots. I find it difficult to long board in OC, again at particular spots and on the out going tide. I love Assateague, especially on a chest high or bigger day. Sometimes if OC is shutting down the teague might be working. That's just me. Have fun either way. Stop by Malibu's surf shop - those guys are great. Also, I suggest a breakfast at the Bayside Skillet.
a good 3.2 will work and a set of booties, 5 mil/ 3mil etc. If ya have a short sleeve 2 mil full bring that too for the outer banks. Depending on where you surf along highway 12 you may need your 3/2 and booties like in VB but it can also be 10 degerees warmer around the point in buxton so...
3/2 and booties and all the other rubber you have like 2 mil short sleeve full, spring suit, adnd some board shorts. Where do you live in NC?
Thanks for all the help. The reason we are planning this trip is because my dad has business up there anyway so once he is done i am flying up and meeting him in Maryland. From there we figured why not hit those 3 spots on the drive back to NC.
Zansurf that was some funny sh!t haha i got a good laugh out of that
