    Buckroe beach can have some fun waves with the right NE swell. But like lee said, if the bay waves are good the ocean waves are usually better.

    Still wanting to try a run a fisherman's island sometime...have a friend w/a boat who is willing so hopefully this year sometime.

  3. There is a spot not far from my house and not far from where the video in the original post was shot. It breaks good about once every few years on a huge swell. The best I ever caught it was shoulder high during a big hurricane swell when everyplace else was un-ridable.

    On a brutal freezing February a year ago my wife took my grom and two of his friends there for a surf because the waves out front were too big. It was perfect stomach to chest high on the groms and offshore. Within 15 minutes the police showed up because someone called the cops. Seems this spot is now claimed by the bird / enviro-nuts. Screwed up world when the cops are called on 11 and 12 year olds for surfing a deserted spot on a 35* day in February.

    Man that's crazy. Things like this makes me shake my head, "society" screws things up for the rest of us.

    I'm sure you guys are going to call bull**** here... But I've been surfing a spot in the bay for years that is easily the best wave in the area (possibly the east coast). Its a full on legit righthand point break. The first time I surfed the place (right after hurricane Ernesto), it was head high and reeling for 100+ yards.

    The only problem is that it breaks like once a year, if that. It needs a huge groundswell to start breaking. If the ocean is 8 foot, it will be 3-4 here. And its also a VERY long walk to get to it.

    Edit: If chicks beach was breaking in that picture Zach posted, the spot I'm talking about was probably going absolutely mental. Also, I've lived near chicks beach my whole life, and never seen it break like that.

    I'm definitely not calling bull**** on you. You don't even need to convince me at all. My observation is if a spot is super inconsistent, requires a VERY long walk to get to, and doesn't have a camera pointed at it, 99% of surfers will never bother to waste an hour checking it, knowing they will probably get skunked, even if its a legit good spot. Figure out when the odds are good, be willing to go off the well beaten grid and get skunked some of the time, and you will score good uncrowded waves just about anywhere. Even the tidewater area!

    Bay Point.jpg

    Found a pic on my old camera from a good (but not the best) day there. My old camera is broken (won't upload to computer), so I had to take a pic of the screen of the camera with my phone, hence the ****ty quality.

    It's hard to tell the scale of the wave in that photo, but the wave in the back is probably chest high. That was probably the best wave that came through, and it was right as I was leaving. I was soooo pissed the sun was setting, but I don't like to surf there during sunset (I get a really sharky vibe there).

    I remember this day, and not knowing where to surf. At this point, the wind had died enough that the ocean was glassy as well. Friends told me the North End was a few feet overhead and perfect (yeah, its that rare). I'm not bummed with my decision though, cause I got to surf this wave with just me and two friends.
