    Waves breaking where they shouldnt...

    I have a wierd fascination with waves breaking where they shouldnt...We have talked about how we have seen waves in the chesapeake, heck somebody a while ago told me they went out in the choptank river one real windy day. Has anyone seen any waves breaking in any of our water ways where they shouldnt? Has anyone ever seen slaughter beach or somewhere up there rideable?

    Have you seen the video on the weather channel from Chicago last week? They were getting some major swell there. It was taking people out on the North Ave beach bike path.

    I saw that, pretty crazy...gives me hope that if for some reason my life takes me inland, I have a chance of finding some sort of swell somewhere.

    I've seen it break at Sandy Point State Park, at the foot of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, but if its breaking there, you've gotta keep going, as it will be 4x as big on the coast.

    I've seen a rideable wave on the Deleware Bay a few times, right after those gnarly, blasting cold fronts that creates a strong, sustained NW wind. It's only, maybe, 40 miles of fetch, but it can create a perfect little knee to thigh high righthand peeler.

    This looks like fun: http://youtu.be/YIz2IdYW4dE

    I wish that would happen up the James River. I need something out here.

    I doubt this to be true- but sounds interesting, its in Camden, nj...

    It sounds like it has to be a 12 to 16ft swell outside in order to break here...

    If you don't get shot surfing this break you will probably die from the sewage. Let me know how it is!!!
