    I have done tow-at's on assateague before if that's what you mean. Doesn't really get big enough to tow in around here. Saw a few guys doing them at the Reef Comp in OCMD before.

    not really in delmarva. there is some law in ocean city that you have to have skis so far away from anyone. There are some places where you can get away with it. Having said that, I've done some tow-ats at an undisclosed location.

    ive know ppl who do them out in the shoals, ive been out there and checked out the surf b4 but never actually bothered to get in the water..... its weird out there, its like monster hole in florida but not very good.

    I believe. . .

    . . . correct terminology is "Tow in" as opposed to being pigeon toed with a "toe in." And what's the point? Laird does tow in because the waves he rides generally can't be caught by a standard paddle in. I've been around here for what seems like an eon, and I've NEVER seen that kind of size. You have to go to Mavericks or Cortez Bank or Maui or Oahu for that kind of size.

    Standard water protocol requires watercraft to be at least 60 ft from a ski or wakeboard rider, and even then the rider is supposed to have a pfd on. This time of year I don't imagine OC authorities would really care, or even notice, but summer is a different story to be sure, and rightfully so. Who needs just so much extra shrapnel in the impact zone?

    i think the guy was asking about tow at's which I have only ever seen bodyboarders do. Just a fun way to boost some crazy air even on small days

    I was thinking about how you get pulled into the wave to get air and i would do it at assateague.
