Trailer a skiff or a jet ski so you can explore hidden water accessible only set ups and outside mysto breaks. Or a kayak if you are environmentally aware (and 99% nuts). Make sure you have a good anchor or you could end up chasing your rig out to sea between sets.
Jimmy Buffett (the singer) did something like this, if memory serves. Had himself a custom sleep-in surfing rig built & drove/surfed the east coast a few years back. I think it was also one of those bio-fuel rigs, too. Pretty neat stuff overall.
Maine has some good outter islands. But you would have to get some good swells to coincide if you want any chance of exploration WITH surf. Otherwise all you will be doing is scouting potential spots. Pretty hit or miss, but sounds fun as anything.
Anyone interested in cycle-touring and surfing/camping, or just exploring shoreline?
I've been destroying some eastern shore roads by the coast down here, and I've got a lot of ideas brewing. These guys have been a solid inspiration for what I'm interested in doing. Delmarva for mini-starters, east coast for adventure. I'm pretty much ready to ride.
Save your money and go two wheels - never worry about fuel price - I haven't for almost 5 years!
I agree that going anywhere you haven't been before is exploring, just start from where you would normally go and start hitting all the other spots you always pass by or go a bit further than you normally would and try those spots. Although, I really like the idea of starting in Dec and going up the coast all the way to Maine and back till end of Feb. Would be a good 90 days and guaranteed to score almost every day if you pick the right spots along the way
I was thinking of doing something like this. I'm from NY so I was thinking of just heading south, stopping in every state on the way down and doing some exploring, then heading back up north doing the same thing. It would be a long trip though don't you think? I mean unless you were following a cane swell up the coast back home there would most likely be alot of flat days. One of these days, one of these days
I may have posted this before on another thread. If so, I apologize.
East coast surfing road trip from 1975: VA to FL. In a VW van, no less. Not much surfing footage until they get down to FL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Clyg2LTvIy0
Islands and artificial reef off of the coast, not gonna say where but some spots can get world class

I was thinking about Nova Scotia but I was hoping for decent spots state side. Iím not looking for anyone to dime out there spot just wondering if there is a spot where I can camp and explore around.
