    I'm returning from DC and have an extra two days/one night to hit the waves (swells willing) on my way back to Philly. Anyone have any good tips on the best place to overnight sleep in my car (I'm not interested in a motel) while I'm there? How are the cops about finding a dude crashed out for the night (but sober) in his car in a parking lot there?

    Also, where are the best breaks around Lewes/Dewey/Rohoboth?

    While I'm at it, instead of trying to drag my board around everywhere and keep it from getting stolen, what's a good shop for rentals there?

    1. Just park in south oc on route 1 prob the middle lane and sleep in you car there... the cops are too worried about the drunk hicks there anyway... 2. most consistent break has to be bethany or rehobeth.. prob rehobeth (or henlopen) ever since there sand pumping a few years ago makes for real nice breaks!!.. 3. if your gonna surf the epic rehobeth break theres this really sick boardshop thats real cheap cause its with the outlets called pacsun try to rent from there... if not I saw this place hollister where the manicans had some sick short boards.. try it out dude good luck

    He might as well have thrown those quotes in there because your smoking 100 percent pure grade not happening, in a sort of whimsical way entertained by kooks alone. Good luck with your Delaware "safari"

    Here's a real answer for you. I have slept in my car in ocean city. Honestly, you wont have a problem doing this - I would shoot for North OC and find a street you want to check in the morning and you'll be fine. As far as camping, the only place to this is in Delaware is at the Indian River Inlet, which might be a good option for you.

    Thank you for a real answer. Growing up in Gulf Shores and Pensacola I'm not too picky about waves as anything is usually better than there - sans hurricanes & TS's.

    The rest of you, sue me for looking to break up the monotony of driving downa shore. Kook my ass.

    Skoot - no shortage of wise guys to play with ya on this site - but Swellinfo gave you probably the best suggestions.(other than northside IRI - which everybody knows about), people generally won't publicise their preferred spots - but if you want a board rental, East of Maui shop in Dewey will rent you one, and probably give you a suggestion about where to check for waves (or you could go to "wannasurf" online to check for spots, but most of their info is full of hyperbole and exaggeration)

    Southside river inlet/northside

    would be the best place to bodyboard and northside is for surfing

    i dont know man about north oc, where i am we have cops patrolling at least twice every night looking for permit parking hangers, and also to make sure that no one is sleeping in there car. i know this from A-waking up for early morning sessions, and B- getting caught sneaking out (in my younger days) by the cops. so i would be real carefull about sleeping in your car out in the open. maybe find a parking garage haha

    Consider my chops busted. I guess that's what happens when some hodad's copy of "My Beach" gets worn out. Thanks for the tip.

    Little hand says it's time to rock and roll Skoot!

    Douchebaggery? Douchebaggery??? Who's calling douchebaggery? Listen here you little twink lovin, Philly fruit. Do I have to remind everyone once again how me and Bodhi whooped up on Warchild and his band of super extreme, aggro goons at the Latigo Beach public shower??? Don't make me bring that same fury on your narrow little arse while my bro Bodhi drops some karate style snap kicks to your midsection!!! Skoot, this is your ****ing wake-up call man. I am an F.B.I....(wait for it)...Agent...for God's sake!!!!

    Well, I'm not quite sure about this "jagoff" activity you speak of, but I'm sure it pales in comparison to what you and your little limp wristed poopy pokin boy toy engage in to pass the time. But I get my kicks shreddin face meltin, mind blowin, tasty licks on my Gibson Flying V, or tickling the ivories (and I don't mean playing tonsil hockey with Sven, your lil peter puffin semen monkey) on my Korg RK-100 with my bands Dogstar or Becky. You may have heard of us, we're kind of a big deal in Micronesia, we get all kind of Yapese tail when we tour that Small Island. I'm bored with you, I have to go chase the 50 year storm, maybe go to Waimea, Makaha, or even Bells. Via con Dios, Brah.
