    Surfing w/ Hurricane Debris...

    I am new to east coast surfing -- I am grew up in California. My question: after/during hurricanes, its safe to surf, right? (note: Cali has earthquakes not hurricanes...)

    I've heard mention of hurricane debris potentially being a harzard to surfers after/during hurricanes, and when I saw the post and article about that portion of the wreck that showed up in the water at 43rd st. in OC (http://www.mdcoastdispatch.com/artic...cid=37&id=4252), it got me thinking....

    This is not really a concern - at least around Delmarva area.

    unless you have a storm surge over 10-12 feet, there is nothing to worry about.....

    then again, if you have a storm surge that big, you'd be worried about alot more stuff than surfing...

    1 week after Ivan (i live in pensacola) there was a tide line that was about 30 miles offshore, it was solid hurricane debris (my entire house somwhere in it) it was about 200 yards wide, and stretched for over 50 miles...

    basically, you shouldn't even see anything in the water, unless a CAT 3 or bigger hits the area
