    yeah, 1st st is the place to go if you like crowded line up full of agro wanna-be pro wave hogs. there's tons of breaks, the problem is finding parking. you gots to get up early to find a prime spot. if you come this far, you gotta go to obx. plenty of uncrowded peaks especially if there's a 4x4.

    I agree, if you make it this far head south. VB is just not the place to surf on the east coast. Depending on when in August that might be around the time of the ECSC in VB, usually skunked for waves during the contest but a big party.

    August in VB is usually a no wave month but is also known for the mass quantities of jelly fish.

    The two most opposite extremes for surf in august. Virginia beach nightmare. Hatteras paradise.

    The OBX sucks, you wouldn't like it here. We usually all drive up to Va Beach, find a spot, pull out the phone and call all of our boys to it. Just look for all the NC plates with OBX prefix. Our license plates start with "OBX"

    JP's probably back from his trip. OP was over 11 years ago.
