    Conditions in Ocean City, MD?

    So I'm traveling down to OCMD from Mass to visit a friend. The trip wasn't supposed to be a surf trip but it sure is looking that way now. The friend does a little surfing and her dad and brother have a full quiver of boards between them. Needless to say, I'm stoked! I surfed some peaky chest high waves in MA yesterday but I can't wait to catch the full force of these hurricanes/TS's.

    That being said, can anyone tell me how the conditions have been? I might not be able to get out there until Saturday, in which case, it looks like there's gonna be a lot of wind out of the SSW. Any tips on a sheltered place to go? I'm sure I'll get surf spot advice from my friend in OC but a couple extra opinions wouldn't hurt! I'm not asking for anyone to give away secret spots but if you would that would be great .


    PS - Feel free to message me if you're feeling generous about sharing a spot but don't want to blow it up .

    No offense, I don't think anyone is gonna tell you anything special. Just pick a spot and surf.

    I was out Wednesday evening around 18:00 and then again this AM. Wednesday evening was super sick. It was the biggest I'd seen all summer. 3-4 footers with some 5,6 and maybe even 7 footers coming in. This morning was really clean with consistent 2-3 footers. An occasional 3-4 foot beauty would roll through.

    Crappy cell phone pics from Wednesday:

    If your friend, friend's dad, and friend's brother are OC locals, they'll know where to go to get the most from this swell

    Check out Assateague while you are there, State and Federal side should be fun if the winds cooperate.
