    I haven't looked or been out htere when there was a big strom or nanything coming through but I was out fishing this one time out on my boat neat breazy point and this huge tanker came by. He must of been goin to fast or somethin coasue he was creating this huge wake they was forming up but wasn't breaking. it was sick cause it was like wallin up for like a mile I wish i had my surf board, but instead when the wave got to my boat it rocked the sh*t out of us.It was like 6 feet too.

    the chesapeake bay does get waves on a strong NE/N wind. I've heard several reports of this in the past.

    I have surfed it at about 8 foot and perfect toobs. It was during a huge hurricane in the 90's and the OBX was maxed out as was VB.

    Cool Fishermen's Island

    Check out Fisherman's Island on www.wannasurf.com, it will show you the point from google earth, looks pretty good, but only breaks when everywhere else is really big, from what I hear anyway.

    all you need to do is look at a map...only a small area of the bay mouth is open to ocean swells...

    I'm talking about swell generated form the short amount of fetch in the chesapeake bay, not from the ocean. Yes, it happens on a N/NE swell.
