I'm new here -- been lurking for a while and decided to sign up. I moved to Baltimore from Los Angeles about six years ago and I more or less stopped surfing until this year when I decided that 2.5 hours wasn't too far to drive for the best feeling on earth. I ride a 9'8" Scott Anderson Josh Farberow I.
Anyway, I'm planning to be in Rehoboth this weekend for a bunch of relaxing, and hopefully a bit of surf, but I still am pretty green in terms of knowledge about spots, especially in DE.
I usually surf with the ponies, but since I'm staying in DE this weekend that wouldn't make a whole lot of sense. Thanks for any help -- I know people don't usually like to dish about their spots, but I'm a nice guy and respectful in the water. Send me a PM if you'd like to help, and thanks!
crowds shouldn't be a big problem in mid october with all beaches open to surf. wind will be blowing hard offshore, so surf opposite a tall building that might block the wind. surfing with the ponies is not a great idea saturday because the seagull century bike ride is going on and the island and roads to it are gonna be clogged with bicyclists.
take a few minutes and explore. you will find a spot that works to your liking if you are diligent.
