    I just wish the damn home prices in VB werent so jackked up, I'm sick of living in an apt and I would like to purchase a decent home in a location where I dont hav to go through a damn tunnel to go to the beach
    Shoot, this winter wasn't good every day by any means, but I got so many days of chocolate barrels to myself at some the (usually) most crowded and coveted spots at the beach. Ever surfed decent first street or the pier alone? I have, dawn patrols in march. From aug-may I usually surf at least once a week, usually back to back sessions when swells are around. I dont surf unless it's "worth it" because I am a short boarder.

    Housing- I hear ya brother, check eastern Chesapeake out. Housing is way more reasonable. Ches schools are some of the best around and it's less than a half hour to sandbridge, like 15-20 from VB, no tunnels or bridges involved, AND it's right at the 168 bypass to get to obx. I made that move when I got a job in ches and never looked back.

    They are putting in a storm water pipe to collect rainwater from that area and pump it offshore.

    I still haven't been in JBS, how is that place? Fairly new, right? Do they have a good selection of stuff?

    ditto on that..Hickory schools and great location w/the back roads to the beaches. When I worked in VAB last fall / spring I could do dawn patrol and drive 10 min to work from 5th St. , no crowds. Work in Ches now so that would be hard to do but we'll see. One day I'll graduate to the line ups on 1st (when they exist) for now long board in knee high surf until a swell moves in than I'll still long board.

    yeah I figured they probably had the same wetsuits/boards as everybody else. Hopefully its not just another cookiecutter shop. Good to know though bobbyg, I'll stop by and check them out.
