    Assateague Sunday

    Was thinking about hitting up assateague island just on the other side of the OC inlet. Im thinking it will prob be the least crowded being that it is boat access only (or paddle). Only thing im wondering is how it will work with a south swell. Anyone have any insights?

    i was down in the area where u could park on labor day. not sure which way the swell was but in the am the waves had alittle more power and kept rolling better then the area outside of kcoast. the ocean city waves were fast hollow and quick. the assateague waves werent as hollow but had more power and broke longer.

    just my 2cents

    the assateague park can usually hold a big swell.

    sounds like you're referring to a little further north than the lots - if you got a boat you'll definately find something, if the southside of the inlet's not breaking just keep motoring. I just hope you're a strong paddler because if you anchor outside and then get worked a few times that paddle back out to the boat gets a bit tough

    Or you could anchor the boat in the sound and just paddle to the beach. Might be safer to keep your boat there too...

    seriously. i've heard of people surfing the shoals. Never have seen so much as a picture. I know you can see them breaking, but surfable? how big? shape? mush burgers? I've heard hollow and pealing but really? seems unlikely to me

    Assateague is usually a good call when the swell is over 4 feet. "The Wedge" as it's called might be good with the hard NW wind but don't expect to have the place all to yourself. I've paddled over there from the inlet area in the dead of winter just to find the place being held down by a few groms. If you have a boat def worth a check! Hit me up if you do, there's a ton of good sandbars in the Assateague Island area!
