surfing on the East Coast

« on: May 16 2006 14:05:00 »

I am a travel agent in the Midwest and have a request from a
client regarding a good surfing spot on the East Coast.   She wants to travel within a month, so this would mean surfing in late May or early to mid June.  I know nothing about surfing and she has taken some instruction, but not alot.  Can anyone point me in a particular direction?  Many thanks,

The guy above has obviously never surfed the East Coast, or is pulling a cryuel joke on you.  Va Beach and Myrtle Beach get waves about twice a year....combined.  If you want real surf, visit the Outer Banks.

making an east coast surf trip is the worst idea ever -- especially this time of year. seriously. i grew in socal and moved out to the east coast for medical school and the surf is abysmal. at the time of year your client would be traveling the water would still be 55 degrees F (NC and further north) and the waves would most likely be flat as a board. if you are looking just to mess around, send them to FL where it is at least warm and you can reasonable expect something of potential. the waves are really crowded there and there are a few sharks around, but not much to worry about if the trip is 1 month long. better yet, buy a flight to central america or cabo (southern baja) where there is a much more enjoyable atmosphere, as well as a good suring infrastructure for beginners. cheers.
