Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Delaware, Maryland and Virginia make up the Atlantic States. Much overlooked in the surfing stakes, these states can on their day hold some good waves. Primarily over shifting sandbanks. Surfed since the 1960s the small communities have a great deal of history. The winters can drop to below freezing and summers are hot. Hurricane swells produce the best swells and can light-up the whole coast. The dominant wind is a westerly wind which is offshore, but surf consistency is low. Delaware's coastline is only 28 miles/45km long but autumn and winter can provide some good waves around the Indian River mouth. Maryland's surfing is based around Ocean City and can produce excellent waves. Virginia is the birthplace of East Coast surfing, dating back to 1910 but is not really recognised as a surfing destination and to the south of the Chesapeake Bay it is banned in many areas during daylight hours.
