I have never surfed in the Delmarva area and want to give it a shot this weekend. Is there a decent spot that you guys can recommend? We want to avoid crowds and want to catch some decent waves, what is the best place to go to?
48th Street in Ocean City is pretty good. Indian River Inlet in DE is okay but crowded and, in my opinion, requires at least a chest high swell in order for it to break far enough out to ride (unless you bodyboard of course). You guys need more sandbars in the DELMARVA area.
I guess most of OC from 48th south has shifting sandbars (north seems like mostly beachbreak) and can be fun, but also can get crowded on the weekends. Assateague allows room to move but can be fickle depending on tides, winds, bugs etc..
right at the moment, and for a little while now,......the sand bars have gone by-by. It really has been hit or miss for around a month or so now. you have got to be on it at the right time and right tides,..period,..just no way around it. It really is bad. all these last swells could have been so much better,.......but the breaks have just slid away. If we can keep getting these little south swells,...wind or ground.......it should help out. we just need a good flush out of all that sand on the beaches. hence the reason WE HAVE SEEN SO MUCH BEACHBREAK. Screw the summer anyway, atleast around here. last evening was plain stupid, that many poeple in the water, and for what? man I so dislike summer time surfers, they make me sick. <--my vent for the day.

I have been in the water a total of 3 times since may, for that exact reason...
Thank you all for your responses, I pretty much heard from everybody that the beaches are super crowded in the summer, but I guess I want to see it for myself and also get an idea where to come back later in the fall. We decided to head to Assateague this time, will let y'all know how it goes!
