Sandbridge costs a few bucks at Little Island (pier) but the wave is not that good. The road is free if you can find a spot that some f 'n tourist hasn't taken. The waves are not as good at Sandbridge though. It gets very backwashy at about 2 hrs to low to about 2 hrs after. Think about trying Northend like I said, the parking is free and about at easy and it is closer to everything than Sandbridge is. But hey, if the surf is good in the summer, it is probably not a "beach day" anyway and parking is not as hard.
in sandbridge you should make the 5 minute drive down to S-turns. parking is free but sometimes hard to get a space in the summer. in the winter u can park anywhere u want. and it never charges any $ for parking there. and you can sometimes sneak into the parking at the sandbridge market if u go around the front and into the back
Man, VB is not that crowded you guys... I would love to see you guys surf in San Diego, Talk About Crowded!!!!
Just stay away from 1st street, and yes, sandbridge is less crowded. The hiking trail is just that, a trial. But the waves down there are usually sub par. VB just requires alot of checking, knowing where the good sandbars are, and going there.
P.S. If your gonna drive to Sandbridge, you may as well drive down south to the outer banks. I know it seems like a *****, but its not that bad. I used to do it multiple times a week. If there is swell go south, you wont be dissapointed.
P.P.S If you wanna know a bomb shortcut to the OBX from VB just hit me up with a PM.
North end has much better waves and is much less crowded! Its better he goes there....
I agree about 1st street. It makes surfing seem almost like a team sport.
Do you have a key to the gate that leads to Corova?
If so, is it really that much of a shortcut as opposed to taking 168.
I agree too about down south, if I'm ever off and there's surf, I'm there. Sometimes even if I get off early or go in late, I go
Oh yeah, VB has a much greater scarcity of waves than San Diego does. I think if I lived somewhere where there was fun surf more than, on average, once every 2 weeks, I wouldn't be so preoccupied with getting as many as I can in such an allotted time.
It's a trick question, there's no where good to surf in VB.
Welcome to the worst place in the word for surfing. If you recently quit your job to move here you might still have time to go beg for it back. Seriously, I was in Lake Ontario last month and there were better waves than there's been in VB since last July.
