Like I stated earlier, I was out two Sundays ago near the replenishment project. I've been sick since the 4th with flu-like symptoms, as well as my stepson. 5 people I know who were in that area around that time also are sick. Churned up bacteria, man...not to mention an entire winter season of dog **** that was buried in that sand. VB, quite literally, makes me sick.

I'm managing this day by day now and medicating myself with superfood. I can still function but whatever it was started when the 'dirt merchant' was offshore pulling up sand so it's not a coincidence.

Speaking of Sandbridge ...
What has the replenishment done to the breaks? I was down in April surfing near a replenishment pipe near Rock Lane. It was ok at the time around low-mid tide on a thigh-waist high day, but my concern is that the replenishment will bring the outer bars that much closer in. If this is the case, I may have to trek down to little island park orbeyond. I'm hoping that there will be something w/walking distance from the house I'll be visiting in a couple weeks near S-turns.
By the way, feel free to PM me if anyone is concerned about revealing sensitive "break info".
Thanks in advance.

My buddy has the same respiratory congestion I had last week and he came out on the break after the rain too. I just pulled up to the beach after a very busy day that started at the ass crack and the 2-centimeter peelers at low tide couldn't float a fat chipmunk. It's like wanting to play a round of 18 but all that's available is mini golf. If you told me I could get 32 minutes of decent swell if I gulped 32 ounces of the post-rain rivermouth swill I'd say "I'll take it neat, pronto. No chaser, brah!"
Chantal, Chantal, how I long for your swirly hips.

I was at south Dam Neck yesterday talking to some guys who were trying to squeeze a few rides out of the mostly flat surf, and was told that most, if not all, of the previous sandbars along north SB (adjacent to Dam Neck) are now gone due to the replenishment project.
I'm not sure of impact at the S-turn and market areas. Haven't been there in awhile. Contact Surf and Adventure Surf Shop in Sandbridge/VA Beach.
Currently, conditions are 0-1 ft. Maybe an occasional 2 footer. But the water is no longer reddish brown.
Of course all conditions are subject to change without notice.
Thanks DosXX. I was planning on dropping in at S&A and talking w/Rob or maybe Dylan over at PBH. The 2 web cams have not been showing much, but I suspect they may not "see" over the new sand.
Like you said, "conditions subjected to change w/o notice", so maybe I'll get lucky or Miss Chantal will redefine things. Nevertheless, I'll bring my SUP and if there's a stern south wind like last summer I'll get someone to drop me south & I'll enjoy a downwinder.
Thanks again & if I score I'll PM the info.

We're adults (meaning: larger body mass) and yet we're having trouble fending off & getting rid of this toxic stew in our bodies from the deadly ocean water. So can you imagine what this does to children..?? I would bet the farm that VB authorities haven't been doing any water testing for a good long while.
And yet VB positions itself as a family-friendly, clean-ocean beach resort to bring the kiddies and enjoy a wholesome vacation. Another twisted myth of modern America.
Follow the money....
