    Arrow Waves and Kooks!

    Micah can get very scientific on these ideas. He rules and taught me a lot. But you kooks who say the east coast doesn't hold swell are on crack??? Where I was surfing friday/saturday was firing with perfection and many others spots were nitro. You kiddies who live in delmarva, I hate to break it you but this is the worst stretch of coast on the east coast for waves. For the surfers that come from this area that get so good is truley amazing, but the quality of waves can hinder their oppurtunities from ever being a great surfer. So mister ocmerrick, dont say the east coast stinks when its delivering all around you. Once you get old enough, travel a little south and north and you might just see there is a world out there that is closer then you can even imagine. And if you are old enough to travel, and if you are able to complain about your local break...MOVE! Dont cry about it. To tell you the truth, if you utilize your resources correctly, I bet you might just find out where to score some of the bigger swells. They are closer then you think and yes, these spots were firing sick friday and early saturday! Look around, you have it good and don't even realize it!

    I don't know about everyone, but where I was at friday and sat in DE was goin off as well.
    True, we dont get consistantly good swells, but it doesn't ALWAYS suck.

    Oblove i think thats funny cuz it seems like u have insecurities about your surfing so you call everyone else Kooks. I've been other places, i know what good swell and good conditions are and its not what Maryland does. When you put school and everything together you have to understand that you can't always travel up north or down south all of the time. Maybe i shouldn't have said the east coast sucks i think i should've clarified and said Ocean City, Maryland blows ass. I'm positive there are good waves up north and down south, i've surfed um it just all has to do with work, school, and money. Sorry for misunderstanding surf guru

    I've surfed the majority of the east coast, and Delmarva is my favorite place to surf. Is this tainted by the fact that its my home? Probobally...

    However, on a given swell, Delmarva doesn't always pick up the swell the best. But, when it does, I'm plenty content with being at home.

    when the waves get good in delaware there is nowhere else i would rather surf, however it doesnt get good that often.. but i hope everyone remembers what a fantastic fall we had. so much animosity in these posts. Who cares who isa kook, fact is when you are in the water the kooks will fall to the inside while those who can surf well will catch the waves out the back. Oh and ocmerik.. quit asking everyone where there is goodspots in DE.. go explore and find a spot for yourself, remember we live in a flat beachbreak area, when there is aswell you can find a wave, and asfor the few little spots that crack on a swell when nowhere else is... i know where they are becasue of my father and friends, and there is probably a reason you dont.

    Live in MD. don't usually go north for waves

    Depends on how far north you are willing to go. RI has some of the best setups from beach breaks, points, rocks and reefs. It is also such a small state that almost everyone knows each other in the lineup and the minimal number of swells makes everyone that much more stoked when one hits. I was visiting a friend up there when one happened to hit and it was one of the funnest times I've ever had surfing.
