    Thumbs up Sat (today) Forecast Rating

    Looks like you've gone & done it again, Micah. Yep. Solid, spot-on call for the OC-Assateague Saturday morning surf. You gave it 3 Green Men & it was that.

    Glass from the early morning through 1100. Good waves, albeit you had to be on the shoulder & on the steep to get em (and the rides weren't long, just vintage east coast summer stuff), water temps slightly cool @ approx 66-67 degrees.
    A very good morning. Good call. Props where props are due.

    And once again, Assateague is a stunning gift to us - - thank goodness the hordes in DC haven't really understood it yet.

    Right on Dude. I need some head to overhead @ 12 seconds. I'm starving for it.

    I was over there today as well and I think the forecast was decent but I was slightly let down to be honest - I think it might have been because it was so d*mn fun here in vb a couple days last week. But hey at least its nice to know that no matter how crowded it gets here and everywhere else, there is always a peak or two you can have all to yourself in Assateague

    +1 and then some on VB the past coupla weeks. There was one two or three day gig right after Memorial Day wknd, glass, clear water (!), good size waves, dolphins in the lineup....one of the better spells VB has had in awhile.....and best of all....the crowds had departed by post-Memorial Day Monday late morning....

    Yank! My MAN! I dont want to piss in your corn flakes, but those short period waist high waves are nothing compared to what we saw all winter & spring. IF you are going to surf this coast, get some rubber! That said, glad you had a good time at assowhoman (there is actually a nearby town called assowoman). ---edit-- looks like someone beat me to it... oops---

    Whoever said overhead at 12 sec, I heard that! My yearly early august costa rica trip is in the planning stages. Never fails, monster south swells that time of year.

    Assawoman Bay....one of the finest names ever. Whenever I ride out there with first-timers, they do a triple-take on that name. Esp chicas....

    Hear ya, Lee & don't worry about my corn flakes. I spent my winter surfing other places, like Barbados, so although I'm sure you had great waves in VB, well, Barbados was pretty good, too. One of my favorite places. If I could blow off here for a couple months, that would be where I'd go just to surf.
    Maybe post some pics of CR ?

    I just roll with it; thus, the waves of the Memorial Day wknd in VB were just fine to have fun with, because that was the reality of the moment. No sense, to my mind, in comparing what it is to what was or to what could be. (Although surfers are notorious for doing exactly that:"You shoulda been here yesterday, dude!")

    And yes, I was out there in March all rubber'd up. All I can say is that I luv me my 7-mil boots...

    My buddy and I had about 3 peaks to ourselves right in town...we also spent the afternoon at the designated beach with a grand total of about 8 people over two hours.

    Hear ya.

    When we see the dip s h i ts with DC plates on their Z3's & stuck in the sand, we know we're in trouble. There was a recent article on 'our spot' in Washingtonian mag....just like every year or so, there is an article.....but, if it's not next to a Holiday Inn & with chic restaurants in walking distance, most people ain't even gonna think about it.

    I'll say no more about it !

    Having said that, it was a lot of vehicles out there today. Noticeably busier than it was, say, 8 years ago. And as the metro region continues to grow, the great places will get more crowded. What can you do. Just enjoy it while you can, eh?
