VB and obx have been pretty consistent. minus the 2 weeks with no waves a couple weeks ago, its been really fun
I've had mostly the opposite experience off VB/Dam Neck so far this fall. But it's all in the timing. Reports, forecasts,and even webcams can't fully be relied upon. I've hit it lucky (relatively speaking) a few times, even when the web cams showed nothing. And just the opposite. I'll arrive at a spot, looks OK, go back to the car, suit up, grab the board, paddle out, and....nothing. And again, just the opposite has happened. Or it gets all blown out and choppy. Had a lot of that this fall. It can at times change so quickly - even within 15 minutes. Air and water temps in transition now. Cold fronts passing through. Took the 4/3 out of mothballs. This morning, water 60, air 40.
Had a really fun morning mid last week. Best session in a long time. 3-4 glassy, offshore breeze. Air and water in mid 60s. Dolphins, adults and juvenile, all around us added to the enjoyment. Good vibe. One of those sessions when you say, "This is why I do this."
That's awesome. Good for you... Nothing helps you improve more than consistent surf.
I'm sue it will get good over the winter, but it's a bummer to have a shi**y fall. It's my favorite time of year by far. Nothing better than a solid Sept/Oct swell up here. Warm water and offshores usually.

I have come to the conclusion that in order to be satisfied with the conditions, you have to settle for mediocrity.At least on the Delmarva, there have been plenty of waist-chest swells. Yes, we haven't received any groundswells, but if you can find a bar, there is plenty of fun surf. Last week was decent, with a few HH waves coming through.
