    Delmarva Reef/Hard Bottom Break

    went on a kayak trip this weekend out to metompkin island in virginia...I was wondering if anyone has surfed it. I was out at low tide and there was an interesting little break. There is a muscle reef all along the shore near the inlet there and the little waves coming in were making some sick barrells. I walked out to check it out and the bottom is rock hard, not sandy. It's got a real hard muddy bottom. I'm thinking on a decent swell it might be sick. Thoughts?

    keep that to you and your buddies and be careful not to hit the bottom too hard, how deep was it?

    Yeah if you do shred it, obviously be careful with the bottom. And as for my thoughts.. see ya there next big swell . For real though, if you found a gem for yourself, keep it that way.

    There's a few places up in Delaware that have the bottom, no muscle beds left though. Would happen all the time if we didnt' pump and move sand like hell to prevent island rollover.
