"My brother and I motored out to some islands off the VA Eastern Shore on my ski and stumbled on this right peeling around the corner of an island.: Said Eric. "Just my brother and I camping on the beach for three days. Nothing but mosquitoes, rattle snakes, posion ivy, a few bottles of scotch, great fishing and hurricane swell. Eventually we were run off by local park rangers tipped off by our cooking fire. We vowed to return during similar conditions more discreetly provisioned."© 2014 Eric
"This photo may not be a photography purist's dream, (I snapped it using my $200 compact whilst running to get to the surf) but there is a story to this shot. "Me and my buddy are both in the Air Force, He had been on a 12 hour rescue mission to Quebec the night before, trying to rescue a lost hunter and had no sleep. I was flying around Nova Scotia that afternoon, totally bummed that I was missing the surf, until we hit a load of crows, and were forced to land early. "We blasted down the coast, some 1.5 hours drive, to be greated with this sight! We surfed it alone like this for three hours until dark. One of the heaviest sessions I have ever surfed in Nova Scotia! I lived in Scotland for four years and this spot reminds me so much of Brimms Ness, also a few spots in Ireland... Thank you Leslie!"© 2014 spoff

"After driving up coast earlier in the week and getting skunked by devil winds, I headed back up coast on the weekend. This was the first place I checked on Saturday afternoon after a two hour drive. "Overhead lefts running with only 6-7 guys out, while a stone's throw away north of an inlet there was 60. Leslie truly awaked the 'monster' of Florida's central coast. "© 2014 Todd Roller
