    Go out at 48th this saturday

    In all seriousness, go to assateague. Plenty of room and mellow conditions.

    Each day can change with the shifting sands. Look at a map (direction the land is facing) then check the wind direction. Once you find a general region with good conditions, just drive up and down a few streets until you find waves that are good size and aren't closing out.

    My best advice is to learn how certerin wave/wind conditions break. Read the forecasts, then go to your break and check it out. See how they differ, then find out why the differ. Once you can do that, you can find your own breaks based on that knowledge.

    Also, pay attention. . .

    . . . to the tides as most breaks are quite tide sensitive as well. Some bottoms are deeper, and others much less deep.

    <-- Trying to imagine what wave prints look like on someone's posterior. Does it look like Cellulite? Or is it so glassy you could cut yourself?
