I paddled out at Assateague around mid afternoon for about maybe at hour and thought it was awful. The light onshores and new sand bars with the deep inshore trough were causing nearly constant rips that were scuffing up every wave coming in. Drove into town in a wet wetsuit and was rewarded with better waves and half the crowd.
Seriously? Crowded lineup for waist high Assateague in November. I read a good quote in the local paper. "Surfing is currently in a groovy phase"
